Marilyn was responsible for myself and many others in joining the Jersey Shore Button Club. As a result we are able to participate in this wonderful hobby. She was always generous with her time, information, and racious hospitality. As president for 26 years, she was a friend and mentor to all of us. She will be greatly missed by all of us.
