Marilyn Sadler

Three sisters were reunited the morning of February 21, 2017, when Marilyn left earth on her terms and joined them in Heaven. Oh, to see that reunion Connie, Pat, and Marilyn had.
   While with us Marilyn led a life full of faith, fun, and family.  Born on June 20, 1939 in Richmond to Charles (Chuck) and Julia Schankel.  Marilyn was raised in Wayne County and remained here her whole life.
   July 21, 1956, Marilyn married her childhood sweetheart Bill (William) Sadler.  Together they shared many interests such as dancing, camping, reading, finding the best garage sales and spending time with family.  She was also a member of Fountain City Wesleyan Church.
   She was a phenomenal homemaker and cook.  This trait often found family and friends at her kitchen table or asking for recipes.  Her other careers always had her around people.  Her greatest joy was loving on others, giving away selflessly, and following God.
   Those who will miss her most include her husband Bill Sadler of 60 years, her loving son Randy (Kathy) Sadler, wisest daughter Robin (Duane) Moore, her best friend and daughter Renee (Ronnie) Pennington, and her baby Rett (Tony) Foster.
   Her legacy didn’t end there. Many grandchildren and great-grandchildren adored her.  Her grandchildren include Kristy (Richie) Anderson, and their son Clayton, Missy (Paul) Haskell and her children Jarrett Jeffries and Charlee Wood, grandson Jeremy (Jesse) Sadler and their children Graham and Caeden, grandson Shawn (Jennifer) Pennington and their children Greyson and Kynlee, granddaughter Brittany Pennington and her children Addison and Koleson, grandson Christopher Price and his children Rylan and Genevieve, and granddaughters Hayleigh, Abby (Abby Cadabby), Laney (Mona Lisa), grandson Hudson (Budda).  She leaves behind special nieces, nephews, and friends.  One special friend who will miss her most is her loyal canine companion, Jaxxon.
   Marilyn didn’t want any fuss made after her passing.  She was a firm believer in celebrating life, sending flowers, and loving on one another in life, not in death.  To honor her wishes there will not be a calling or funeral.  In lieu of flowers, take flowers to someone that you love today.  Don’t miss any opportunities you have. Love you more, Marilyn, Mom, Granny, Gigi.

Sending prayers and wishes for peace and comfort at this most difficult time.  The legacy of love and zest for life that Marilyn leaves behind is seen in her husband, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren...she will most definitely be missed...but now can truly be that ever-watchful angel looking over her family.  I hope each of you can find comfort in knowing that she is forever with you in spirit...gone but never forgotten.  Much love to you all.  May God's Grace surround you all.

Robin .... so sorry to hear this news.  You were my first 1st-grade friend and I remember riding the bus with you and how we would play at each other's house.  I liked being around you and your family ... I remember she always seemed to be laughing at something.  Big hugs to you.

Dear Bill & Family:
Really was shocked to see on face book the passing of Marilyn. I'm so very greatful that it hasn't been that long since we talked in Wal Mart. Marilyn has been through alot in her life time but she was a great warrior. Never giving up.
However our God reached down Tuesday morning and took her home. Now with a perfect body with no more cancer or pain.  
Stan & I will keep you and your family in our prayers.
