Marilyn Estelle (Holland) Anderson, 98, beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother and aunt, passed away on July 1, 2024, in Denver, Colorado. She was born on September 30, 1925, in Floral Park, New York. She attended John Lewis Childs Elementary School and graduated from Sewanhaka High School. She received a B.A. and M.A. in Education from Hofstra University, and taught 4th grade at Floral Park–Bellerose Elementary School, where she was promoted to the position of Principal.

Marilyn met her first husband, Albert Roscoe, when he was serving in the United States Navy during World War II. They were married at the United Methodist Church in Floral Park on November 10, 1946. Their daughter, Lorraine, was born on March 6, 1950. Albert passed away on April 21, 1952, from an illness contracted during the war.

Marilyn married Arthur Bingham on December 1, 1962, also at the United Methodist Church in Floral Park, attended by their children Lorraine Roscoe and Kim and Gary Bingham. They had the good fortune to travel all over the world and enjoyed many years with family and friends until Arthur’s death in 1984.

Marilyn married her third husband, George Anderson, on December 22, 1985, at the United Methodist Church in Floral Park. They moved to North Carolina following retirement, where they were active members of the Little River United Methodist Church and enjoyed golf, bridge, and socializing with old friends from Floral Park as well as many new friends. They hosted many fun beach vacations for their children and grandchildren and other family members.

Besides family and travel, Marilyn loved sewing and was famous for creating beautiful quilts. She was fond of lobster rolls and Old Fashioneds, loved to shop the sales at Nordstrom, and knew how to throw a great party.
