September 19, 1940 - January 10, 2022
Marilyn McNeill Meisel (81) passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 10, 2022. She followed her sweetheart of 65 years (Alfred Meisel) two weeks after his passing. Marilyn was born on September 19, 1940, in Salt Lake City, Utah to Ione Hansen and Lawrence Archibald McNeill. She had five siblings: JoAnne Hansen (deceased), Lawrence McNeill, Lynn McNeill, Vickie Nelson, and Pam Krump. She met Alfred when she was 14 at Liberty Park Pool. They fell in love and got married on August 3, 1956. They had four children: Anthony John (Susan), Wendie Lynn (Art), Steven Lawrence (Linda), and Holly Ann (Moli). Marilyn loved spending time with her family. They went on many vacations going camping while their children were growing up. She was very involved with her kids. She was a cub scout leader, joined the PTA, and volunteered in many positions at their school. Marilyn was very creative. She sewed countless costumes and clothing. Some of her many talents included sewing machine embroidery, tole painting, and ceramics. She enjoyed teaching her family these skills and gave sewing lessons to those wanting to learn. She loved puzzles and would frequently have one on her table that she was working on. She was an excellent cook and loved to make meals and treats to bring her family together. She was especially famous for her orange rolls which would be eaten up as soon as they appeared on the table. Marilyn was a woman of service. She enjoyed helping others. Her church callings and responsibilities were important to her, and she couldn’t understand not doing it. She served a service mission with “Alfie” at the Bishop’s Storehouse in Colton, California. She was a helpmeet to her husband throughout his jobs and his church callings. She was his study partner when he was studying to become a sheriff. They took on any challenge together and she was there supporting him through it all. Marilyn was a grandmother to 17 grandchildren and great-grandmother to 27 great-grandchildren. If you needed grandma, she was there for you. She would make it all work out. This feisty sweetheart of a woman will live on through us.
