Marlyn Carole Day (née Broom), 83, of Huron and Columbus, Ohio, passed away on September 20th after an extended illness.
Marlyn was born in 1937 in Derwent in Guernsey County, Ohio to the late Woodrow and Roberta (née Christian) Broom.
She was a graduate of Cambridge High School in 1955 and received a bachelor’s degree in speech and hearing pathology from Ohio University in 1962. She taught the hearing impaired and worked as a speech pathologist in the Columbus public school system for over 30 years, retiring in 1995.
Marlyn was an avid reader who used to read 2-3 books per day, mostly mysteries, which she could usually solve. She was the eldest daughter of a large, loving family and never missed a holiday at the family farm. She will be greatly missed by friends and family.
