Marilyn Coleen Lee, age 79, left this world on June 11, 2020 in Waxahachie, Texas. She was born on August 11, 1940 to her parents, Russell Raty and Elaine Nelson Raty.

Marilyn was the second oldest of 14 children. Her brothers and sisters loved and looked up to her. She was such a help to her mother with each new baby brought home. She would laugh and tell her own children they were lucky to be alive because after caring for her siblings she didn’t want to have babies of her own.

We were blessed to call her our mom. She challenged and insisted we memorized bible verses and to clean, clean, clean. She was very convinced that cleanliness was next to Godliness. She loved to go dancing and playing cards; canasta and rummy. She worked various jobs during her life. In the office of “Our Daily Bread”, banking, managing apartment complexes, selling Avon, daycares, and elementary schools. Marilyn was a hard worker, giving her all with a smile on her face and a skip in her step. Shopping was her favorite hobby with returning those same items a close second.

Marilyn is survived by her daughter, Cindy (Tony) Tedmon; son, Bradley (Chris) Keiper; grandchildren, Stephanie (Edward) Park, Carrie (Christopher) Parker, Brandon Keiper, Brittney Keiper; great-grandchildren, Jayan, Kellen, Carsyn, Rylen, and Colsen.

She is preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Russell Raty, Gary Raty and Ronald Raty.

When she moved to her new home in Heaven, she joined her son, Robert Franklin Keiper, whom Jesus called home at a young age of 12 years old.

Acts 16:31 ~ Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.

I (John) remember the first time I met Marilyn. I had come to Great Falls from Glacier Park where I was working. I got out of the car at their house and Linda cried out "There's Johnny!" Marilyn was so surprised that she said "No, it's not" We all had a good laugh about that in years to come. Linda and I remember visiting her when she worked at RBC in Grand Rapids and have always admired her strong faith in Jesus Christ. Marilyn, give our Jeff a high five when you see him in heaven.

My sweet Marilyn...we worked together for over 6 years at the bank. We had nicknames for all our drive up customers. Our drive thru sat up high so we looked down on all the cars. We were just talking about how we hadn't seen "Smiley " for a few weeks....low and behold he comes driving up to the kiosk.....with a huge smile on his face. We both looked at each other and bursts out laughing....we pushed ourselves away from the window so he couldn't see us. We laughed the whole time she waited on him...and didn't even say a word to him. He drove off... I'm sure quite confused. (We had to explain our behaviour to him to next time he came in)
We also called each other the "Take Back Queens" We would shop together...then once a month....have a take back day, because we decided we didn't quite like how something fit....most of the tags were still on our items. I love you my Marilyn. Till we meet again!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️
