Obituary for Marilyn C. Coon

Aberdeen, Mississippi - Heaven gained a special set of wings on July 25, 2020 when Marilyn (Childress) Coon passed away after a lifetime filled with laughter and happiness. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Amelia, and husband, Fred, who is now dancing with her once more. A devoted daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother, Marilyn was a true force who never shied away from sharing her opinion of NFL football or the daily news. Anyone who met her can attest to her innate kindness and ability to somehow never meet a stranger.

A native of Oakland, Illinois, she married Fred Coon in 1962. After building a life together and settling in Charleston, they retired to Mississippi to be with their daughter Lynn Fisher, her husband David, and grandson Daniel. She quickly became a beloved fixture of the community but never overlooked her friends and loved ones in Illinois. Marilyn’s greatest love was for her family, and she cherished every moment with them. And while she will be dearly missed, her spirit will live on through those precious memories with family and friends.

Funeral services will be Thursday, July 30, 2020, at 10:00 AM at Krabel Funeral Home in Oakland, Illinois with Lamar Pruitt officiating. Burial will follow in Oakland Cemetery in Oakland, Illinois. Calvert Funeral Home of West Point is in charge of the arrangements.

Also preceding her in death were her parents: Eldon and Hazel Innes Childress, one sister: Lois Snider and one brother: Rex Childress.

Visitation will be Wednesday, July 29, 2020 5:00-7:00 PM at Krabel Funeral Home in Oakland, Illinois.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Strong United Methodist Church, 10337 Strong Road, Aberdeen, Mississippi 39730 or to the Alzheimer’s Association at her tribute page, https://act.alz.org/site/TR/Events/Tributes-AlzheimersChampions?pg=fund&fr_id=1060&pxfid=638823
