Marilyn Bybee Cochran was born April 22, 1928 in Sedalia, Missouri, the daughter of Elbridge and Lillian Bybee. She married Sam Victor Cochran Jr. on April 2, 1949 in Marshall, Missouri. Marilyn was an active member of the local Take Off Pounds Sensibly club. She enjoyed visiting with friends and socializing. Marilyn loved to spend time with her sons and family, and watching the grandkids. She also enjoyed riding around and watching the birds at Lookout Point in Harley Park. And you never saw Marilyn in anything but nice clothes, she liked to look her best.
