Marilyn (Miller) Weinstein, 99, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 26th, 2024, in Naples, Florida, surrounded by family, with countless friends keeping vigil nearby. Marilyn was born in Menasha, WI on October 5th, 1924, to Fan and Herman Miller. She graduated from Green Bay East High and attended the University of Minnesota, where she met her beloved husband of 62 years, Lou Weinstein. Marilyn divided her time between the two places she called home. Green Bay, WI, where she and Lou raised their family and owned Lou’s Bootery, and Naples, FL where they retired to days filled with golf, tennis and great friends.
Marilyn had a special place in her heart for Hadassah and Hadassah Hospital in Israel, to which she dedicated much love and support. She was an avid bridge player and never missed a chance to enjoy a game. She was a long-time member of Cnesses Israel Synagogue in Green Bay and a proud Packer fan.
Marilyn is survived by her children, Nancy Mellin and Tom (Patti) Weinstein; grandchildren, Katie (Jay) Lundin, Jenn (Joe) MacKinnon, Tricia (Ryan) Griffiths, and Madeline (Cristian) Vasiliev; great-grandchildren Emma, Ryan and Sophia Lundin, Amelia and Maisie MacKinnon, and Louie Vasiliev. She is also survived by her brother, Ted Miller; nephews Michael and Jeff Miller, and many other special relatives.
Many thanks to all the dear friends that were so devoted to Marilyn throughout life, especially in these last few years.
