Marilyn King

Marilyn King left us to join our heavenly Father on September 22, 2009, surrounded by her family. She was born on August 21, 1934 in Munhall, Pennsylvania to John and Dorthea Clutter. After high school, she met the love of her life Peter, and was married on May 21, 1955. They had five wonderful children and lived in Pennsylvania and Woodland Hills, California before moving to Richland in the late 60's. Marilyn retired as a medical office secretary in the late 80's to enjoy time with family and friends.

Marilyn was the best mother a family could ever want. She was loved very much and was generous to both friends and family. She enjoyed lounging by her pool, traveling to the Oregon coast, vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, and taking an occasional trip to the casinos to play the slot machines. In the years when her children were young, she enjoyed many outdoor activities such as camping and traveling around the country.

Marilyn was preceded in death by her husband Peter, and is survived by her son Jeff and wife Becky; daughter Sue and husband Randy Watt; son David and wife Tammara; son Jim; son Curtis and wife Karen; grandchildren Jason King and wife Tracie, Allison King and husband Paul Navejar, Nicholas and Matthew Watt, and Janelle and Steven King; great-grandchildren Dustin and Connor King and Maya Navejar. Marilyn is also survived by her sisters Nancy Tripp and Karen Clutter, and brother in-law Don Krowsoski.

The funeral mass will be at Christ The King church in Richland on Monday, October 5th at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation in Marilyn's name.

God bless you Marilyn – we will always love you.

  • I’m very sorry for your loss. I loved and cared about Marilyn while I cared for her at Riverton. She was truly a special woman, and I feel the pain without her in my life, as you do I’m sure. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  • Dear Susan and Family,

    I am so sorry to hear about your mom passing. I think of all the time we spent together growing up, many sleep overs, your mom was the best. When I had my first child Nathaniel she was the comforting face I would see when I would go for my Doctors visits she was a refreshing smile waiting when you would come through the door. We would talk about the old good times and how everyone was doing. My thoughts go out to all of you, the time that passes will give you the comfort to cope with missing your parents but they will live within all of you for years to come and leave you with pleasant memories to comfort you.

    Take Care,

    Nancy and Bob Foreman
