Marilyn Ann Mayfield Greear passed away Jan. 25, 2018, at Phelps County Regional Medical Center in Rolla, Mo. She was born Aug. 10, 1926, to Charles and Marie Mayfield, graduated from Danville High School, and lived most of her life in Danville.
Marilyn married Richard Greear from Danville in 1952 and had a daughter, Debra Ann in 1955. Marilyn managed the downtown Fannie May Candy store for many years. She had many friends, listened to music, played with her beagle dogs Taffy and Penny, and belonged to Central Christian Church.
Marilyn and Richard enjoyed spending time with their grandchildren, Zach and Becky, and seeing country music shows in Branson, Mo. Marilyn moved to Rolla, Mo., when Richard passed in 2007 to be close to her daughter, Debra, and her new great-granddaughter, Makenzie. Marilyn made new friends and engaged in many activities at Wellington Place and Parkside Assisted Living. She became quite a bingo champ during her decade in Rolla.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Marie and Charles Mayfield; her husband, Richard Greear; her sister, Margaret Rohrer from Danville; and her brother, Bill Mayfield from Springfield.
Marilyn is survived by her daughter, Debra Robinson from Rolla, Mo.; her granddaughter, Becky Folkmann from Washington, Mo.; her grandson, Zach Robinson; and her great-granddaughter, Makenzie Robinson from Rolla, Mo.
