Marilyn V. Cerniglia, age 58 years old, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 10, 2021 peacefully at her home. Her husband Frank was at her side while she passed. She was born in Altoona, PA to Cletis Rhodes and the late Nancy Rhodes (Anderson).
Marilyn graduated from Mckean High school. She worked at the Medical Center of Delaware/Christiana Care for several years before finding her passion for travel. She then became a Travel Agent at Liberty Travel. She loved the beach and the clear water of the Colorado River and the Caribbean Sea. Frank and Marilyn moved to Arizona for several years where she fell in love with the Southwest culture and the desert sunsets.
Marilyn was a loving Daughter, Wife, Mother and Grandmother. Even while she battled colon cancer over the last 12 years, she was always there to give a helping hand wherever she could. She loved to spoil her 2 Grandsons and was always ready to make them mac and cheese and cookies whenever they would visit.
Marilyn is survived by her father Cletis Rhodes (Betty); Husband, Frank Cerniglia; Children Stephanie Hart (Bryan), Lauren Muller (Brett); Stepson Frankie Cerniglia; and Grandsons Logan Hart and Derek Hart.
The family would like to thank Seasons Hospice and the Helen Graham Cancer Center for the care Marilyn received.
Friends are invited to attend a Gathering at the McCrery and Harra Funeral Home, 3710 Kirkwood Highway on Saturday January 16th from 3 to 4 PM.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to The American Cancer Society or the Blood Bank of Delmarva.
