Marilyn Jean Bricker

Marilyn Jean Bricker, 89, of Karns City, went home to be with the Lord early Tuesday morning, July 25, 2023.

She was born on January 14, 1934. She was the daughter of the late Victor C. and Sara O. McGarvey Fleeger. She was raised on the family farm with her nine siblings.

She was a 1953 graduate of Karns City High School. She had been employed first at Magnetics in East Butler and later as a nurses’ aid at First American Home Care and excelled as a private home caregiver.

Marilyn was a Christian and loved the Lord. She lived by the word of God and studied the Bible fervently. She was a selfless and loving person who always had a song in her heart and loved to sing. Marilyn loved her beautiful flower beds and enjoyed time spent with family, friends, and her dog, “Teddy.” Her home was warm and welcoming; when she was young she enjoyed cooking, sewing, and making her own clothes. She was a Penguins fan and enjoyed watching them with her sister, Shirley, and son David.

Bricker; seven grandchildren, Joey, Lisa, Victor, Brian, Michelle, Taylor, and Greg; six great-grandchildren, Sage, Victor Jr., Joseph #5, Annie, Katahdin, and Lucille; three brothers, James Fleeger and his wife, Patricia, Larry Fleeger and his wife, Jo Ann, and Carl Fleeger and his wife, Val, and a sister-in-law, Glenda Fleeger all of Chicora; one sister, Shirley Heeter of Prospect, as well as a number of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In addition to her parents, Marilyn was preceded in death by two brothers, Robert, and Richard Fleeger; three sisters, June Herold, Kay Dunn, and Sally Hefner; two brothers-in-law, Lawrence Herold, and Floyd Heeter; a sister-in-law, S. Susan Fleeger, and two nieces, Ruth Herold Armstrong and Kim Fleeger Kendrick.
