It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Marilyn Louise Geddis, 69, of Heuvelton, NY passed away September 7, 2023, with her family by her side.
She was born to the late Howard and Leona Crowe, August 22, 1954, in Heuvelton, NY. Marilyn graduated from Heuvelton Central School in 1972 and received a master’s degree in education from the State University of New York Plattsburgh; as well as a master’s degree in education administration from St. Lawerance University.
Marilyn was an accomplished and respected elementary teacher throughout Heuvelton Central School. She made lifelong memories for her students through her Mad Scientist Program, Laura Ingalls Wilder day, and local history programs that continues to embrace her students to this day. Marilyn was devoted to her hometown Presbyterian church where she sang in the chorus and assisted with the church youth groups. Her love for quilting, crafts, and painting were shared with and will be carried on through her children and grandchildren. Marilyn was a beacon within her community where those that knew her looked upon her as a mother and grandmother figure and her presence will be profoundly missed.
Marilyn is survived by three children: Lindsey Ward (Eric Ward) of Rochester, NY, Matthew Geddis (Ria Geddis) of Westminster, CA, and Lauren Myers (Ryan Myers) of Guyton, GA. She is also survived by her six grandchildren: Hunter Myers, Connor Myers, Caleb Myers, Ava Ward, Gavin Ward, Myla Ward; brothers Ken Crowe (Nora Crowe), and Larry Crowe (Theresa Crowe); and her sister-in-law Cheryl Crowe.
A celebration of life visitation will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2023, from 10 a.m. – 12pm at the Carlson & Riggs Funeral Home in Guyton, GA.
Along with flowers, the family suggest that people can make donations in Marilyn’s memory to American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 6704, Hagerstown, MD 21 741.
