Marilyn Martino age 71, passed away peacefully at Coulee Medical Center in Grand Coulee, Washington, surrounded by her loved ones.
Marilyn was born September 24, 1951, in Malibu, California to Aura O'reilly and was adopted and raised by her father Phillip O'reilly along with her mother. She graduated from Malibu High School and attended the nursing program at Grand Coulee Hospital at the top of her class (and all the other classes at the time). She had many careers throughout her life including modeling, in-home care giving, and owning a carpet/upholstery cleaning business, and she was successful at every single one of them.
Aside from working towards her career, Marilyn loved canoeing and traveling and spent much of her free time helping others. She really didn't know a stranger. She loved all animals and was passionate about helping any animal she could. She had such a bright personality and genuinely touched so many people's lives.
Marilyn is survived by her two sons: Brian Nevares and Kenneth Reed; her granddaughter Jazmine Reed; her great-granddaughter Chloe Xiong and so many others that love her.
Please come celebrate her life with us at 5pm on Sunday, September 24, 2023 at Sunbanks Resort.
