Russ and family,
I am so shocked to hear of Marlys's passing. She was always such a joy to be around! She had a ready laugh and a bit of an impish spirit I think. I was privileged to sit in front of her in the church choir. Many Sunday mornings have been spent sharing the joy of singing beautiful music together. I will miss her.
My heart goes out to you, Russ, and to your family. May you feel God's presence as he walks with you even in this.
We are so sorry for your loss. We hope you can find some comfort in all
of the wonderful memories your family shares.
Russ so sorry for you and your family’s lose!

So sorry for your loss! I have not seen Marlys for many years, but have many great memories of her during the business trips when she traveled with Russ. Lots of great dinners, drinks and laughs. Marlys was a very classy lady with a huge heart and infectious laugh; she will definitely be missed by all who knew her.
My deepest sympathy,
"Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak knits up the o-er wrought heart and bids it break.”

Sorry for your loss. I worked with Marlys in the GI department at Mayo. She was an exceptional woman. Kind, generous, and great personality along with her great knowledge. Alway made me laugh. Great co-worker she really made my day when I worked with her. Wonderful lady. Will be greatly missed

We are so sorry we will not be able to attend services as we will be in Kansas with our children and grandchildren. I will especially miss Marlys, her cheery attitude towards life and her beautiful voice sitting next to me in choir. Marlys was my choir buddy and I will miss her greatly. The world was a better place with Marlys Shores.
My fondest memories of Marlys were at the GI pig roasts at Gostout’s house. We had so much fun. I will miss her infectious laugh. Laser Sisters forever 💗
Marlys will be missed by her family. What a delightful and enthusiastic lady Marlys was. I worked with Marlys in Gi diagnostics. A great nurse that cared; and liked to have fun while she worked, cared about patients, coworkers and medical team. So sorry Shores family for your great loss. Amy

I worked with Marlys in gastroenterology at the Mayo clinic. She was not only an exceptional nurse, but was an exceptional person. Working with her did not seem like work at all. I’m so sorry for your loss.
