A lifelong resident of the area, and member of the Middletown High School Class of 1957; was sent to her eternal resting place through God’s grace, on Friday March 29, 2019; after a short illness. A retired employee of The Town of Wallkill Court, performing as a Court Clerk for 25+ years. She proudly clerked for: The Honorable Joseph A. Owen, and Honorable Robert H. Freehill. She was 79 years old.
The daughter of the late John M. Mulqueen Sr., and Gwendolyn Vaughn Mulqueen, born in Port Jervis, NY. She was the oldest of 3 siblings; predeceased as follows: Gwendolyn Mulqueen Doule’ and John Mulqueen Jr. along, with her late husband; Victor (Willy) Guida.
Marilyn is survived by her partner; Bruce Ean Sr, Daughter; Denise McAteer, and Son; Steven V. Guida, Fur Babies: Harley and Heidi Dog, Brother in Law: John Doule’, several nieces/nephews, and many other’s whom referred to her as, “Mother Goose”.
Marilyn loved life and lived it to the fullest, with zest! She was a force to be reckoned with, and proud to be a true American! Her interest in politics and conservative views, surely proved her love for; Lady Liberty, Our Flag, Our Country (and those who served it), Our Nation, and Our President.
Marilyn was loved by many; for her feistiness, sense of humor, laughter, quick wit, caring loving heart, compassion for people, and animals. She wasn’t afraid to voice her opinion, tell it like it was or at least, as she saw it.
In her earlier years, she loved to travel and see the beauty which God created, throughout this land. Lately, she was content staying still, and resting at home. This modern world of computers made it easy for her to stay connected, with friends, family, and the outside world. She enjoyed Facebook and beating all the levels of Candy Crush; said it kept her mind sharp.
A statement from her family reads: May the grace of God’s protection and ever-present love abide within the hearts of all; and until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
