Marilyn McCain, 83, of Chino Valley passed peacefully on Feb. 27, 2015, in Prescott. Born on Dec. 23, 1931, in Dayton Ohio, Marilyn worked her way to Manhattan Beach California.

On a quick trip to Vegas in 1958, she married Mac McCain. They were married for 43 years when Mac passed in 2001. Marilyn was a bookkeeper for Boys and later Smith's food stores in Prescott.

Marilyn loved flower gardening and sewing, and after retiring in 1992, she started quilting and made several handmade quilts for her family. Marilyn was a kind loving woman who was fiercely devoted to her family and was loved by all who met her.
