Marilyn was born in Cleveland, Ohio. She spent her childhood in Parma and her college years in Columbus, where she met and married Wolf Greiffenhagen. They moved to Hamburg, Germany, for several years, where her two oldest children, Erik and Kimberly, were born.
Upon return to the U.S., Marilyn lived with her family in Cleveland, where Keith, her youngest son, was born, before the family moved to Oberlin, Ohio. Marilyn moved to Yellow Springs with her young family in 1973. She resided in Yellow Springs until 2019, when she moved to an assisted living facility in Springfield.
Marilyn was long known as an eclectic collector of treasures and could often be found early in the morning combing the curbsides of Yellow Springs for her latest find.
She is survived by her children Erik Greiffenhagen (Linda), of Springfield; Kimberly Schlenker (Robert), of Bozeman, Mont., and Keith Greiffenhagen, of Yellow Springs.
She will be missed. There are no services planned.
