Marilyn was an outstanding athlete while attending Swedesboro High School and was on the varsity basketball & field hockey teams all four years.  She would get so embarrassed when her husband would proudly tell anyone that would listen about her athletic achievements.  
After high school, Marilyn worked at E.I. Dupont in Gibbstown for 11 years and then worked at Gloucester County Community College for 37 years in administration.  
Marilyn loved her home, which she helped build along with her loving husband, Gene.  She loved cooking, gardening and taking wonderful care of her husband. 

She is the beloved Wife of over 50 years to Louis "Gene" Tighe, together they shared almost 60 loving years together.  Marilyn was the cherished aunt to many nieces and nephews.  She was pre-deceased by her sister, Patricia Conard and her brother  Frank E. Gripp.
