Marilyn Sue Easley, age 79, of El Dorado Springs, MO, passed away January 15, 2019, at Community Springs Healthcare.
Marilyn was born July 27, 1939, the daughter of Ralph and Theo Nadine Crawford in El Dorado Springs, MO.
She graduated from El Dorado Springs High School in 1957, and then attended Central Missouri State College in Warrensburg, MO, for one year.
In 1958 she married Ray Bozarth and they had three boys: David, Mark, and Brent. In 1988 she married Forrest Easley and moved to Gainesville, MO. She left Gainesville in 2014 and moved back to El Dorado Springs after her husband of 26 years passed away.
Marilyn was a charter member of Park Street Christian Church. However, when she returned to El Dorado, she was asked to play the organ at both First Baptist and First Christian Churches. She was happy to serve by playing at both churches one month at a time.
She loved to play both the organ and piano. Her whole life was centered around these instruments. Playing for people was a delight of her life. She started playing for Sunday School at the Presbyterian Church in El Dorado at age 11. She continued playing until health problems forced her to quit.
