Marilyn Harley Obituary

Marilyn (Lynn) Harley, age 74 of Noblesville, passed peacefully Friday, January 6, 2023 around 1:00 pm at home under Hospice care in Noblesville, IN.  Her friends and family came to express their love in her last hours and we are certain that she could hear the words of love and memories shared, even though she was unable to respond. The emotions of tears and laughter, as stories are shared, are both good and healing and her son, Eric, calls this the “Laugh Cry”. She had suffered from multiple health issues over several years.

  Marilyn was born January 2, 1949 in Batesville, IN to James (Jim) and Rita Litmer. 

  Marilyn is survived by her husband of 54 years, Michael, and her sons Eric, Trevor and Jordan. 

Her daughter Brooke had passed in January of 2020. Additionally she found so much joy in her five Grandchildren; Alyxandria (Alyx), Vincent, Taylor, Isaiah and Jonas who called her Grandmother. Marilyn was preceded in death by her first born son, Aaron, who passed in 1969 at the age of 9 months in Oregon.                                                                         

  Her greatest gift was to give the unselfish gift of love and service to her family and friends. She loved to prepare and serve a beautiful meal on a lavishly decorated table. In addition to caring for her children and grandchildren, she served as nanny for a family of four children in Carmel, IN for 16 years.    

We celebrate that she is now out of her suffering!

We celebrate her life of service!

We celebrate that she is now with God in Heaven enjoying the ecstasy of His love, Life and Presence!             

 We celebrate that she is now laughing, dancing and singing and full of awe in amazement of what God had prepared for her in Heaven.

We celebrate that she is now eternally young and beautiful with long blonde flowing curls and “Looking so good”!

We celebrate that she is with countless others who have gone before including Brooke, Aaron, Parents, etc.!

  Even though we miss her, we trust and know that it’s only for a short time. We picture it like she’s “taken an early flight to the Bahamas” and we’ll join her later.  

  A burial service will be held at 2 p.m. this Wednesday, January 11th at St. Catherine of Siena (formerly known as St. John’s) Catholic Cemetery, Enochsburg, IN; all are invited, encouraged and welcome to attend. 

  Following the service, the family welcomes you all to the Church Hall, where we will share memories of Marilyn.  In honor of her gift of loving service, a meal will be provided, including Fireside Inn chicken.

   Funeral Directors, Greg Parks, Sheila Parks, and Stuart Parks are honored to serve Marilyn's family.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
