Marilyn was born November 2, 1940, in Mer Rouge, Louisiana, and entered her heavenly home on November 12, 2021, after a battle with pneumonia.

Marilyn graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelors of Science in Education from the University of Arkansas in Monticello and went on to earn a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Tulane University in New Orleans. Throughout her 35 years of teaching, she was able to share her knowledge and love of math with students at Eudora High School in Eudora, Arkansas, and at Washington School in Greenville, Mississippi. She taught all levels of math from remedial classes to advanced calculus classes and was the Math Department Chairman for over 15 years. She delighted in the success of her students and even in retirement would tutor prior students for their college classes. Marilyn was a long-time active member of Scott United Methodist Church of Eudora where she held various roles. She enjoyed being an involved member of her community, helping where needed, and spent time as City Clerk in Eudora. Marilyn also loved traveling with friends, especially with her dear friend, Barbara Brandon. Their travels took them to many destinations around the country and abroad. She truly enjoyed spending time with her loved ones especially her grandchildren.

Marilyn was preceded in death by her husband of 27 years, Harlan E. Nunnelee; her parents, H.B. and Bertie Morgan; and her sister, Janice Bettencourt.
