Marilyn Eleanor Hall Wolff (1927-2020) was a bright, funny, engaging and positive woman. For 92+ years she led by example as she lived her life with gusto, love and independence. Although stoic and straight forward she loved her friends and family voraciously through her actions. Marilyn, better known as Momo to her children and their friends, spent her last weeks at her daughter’s home enjoying her 3 children, Susanne Eleanor Wolff Kamphuis (Gerrit; Kaleigh and Ian), Barbara Lynn Wolff Iverson (Daniel; Kirsten, Matthew and Samantha) and Thomas Edward Wolff (Shaheen; Kendall, Harrison and Creighton).
Growing up in Oak Park Ill, she also started her married life in 1956 with Paul Edward Wolff there. He was Marilyn’s loving husband for 39 years, and embraced Marilyn’s joy of being a little left of center. Her humor and ability to adapt to any situation was endearing and why her many friends cherished her. She loved to laugh and was willing to add a bit of humor to a situation. She is known for being a gracious host, open to try anything, and her themed sunglasses
