Marilyn was born Aug. 15, 1933, the daughter of Leon and Bernice (Vastine) Stedman, and had spent most of her lifetime in the Springfield, Ohio, area before moving to Mount Vernon in 2009.

Besides her parents, Marilyn was preceded in death by her sons, Timothy Algren and Russell Algren; and her brother, Joe Stedman.

To follow Marilyn’s wishes, there will be no calling hours or funeral service. The family will observe a private service in Springfield at a later date. Following cremation, her ashes will be dedicated to the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
