Marilynn H. Sheehan

April 21, 1929 — July 20, 2022

SHEEHAN, Marilynn Jane (Hamilton) passed away peacefully in her own bed on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 at the age of 93. She was born in Miamisburg on April 21, 1929 to the late Hubert and Dorothy (Newland) Hamilton.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 61 years, James “Jim” Sheehan and sister-in-law, Kathleen Grissom. She is survived by son, Geoffrey Sheehan; daughters, Jamie Sheehan and Joan (Mark) Baker; granddaughter, Sara (Brandon Stover) Baker; great grandchildren, Sawyer and Presley Stover; sister, Joanne Granzow.

Marilynn graduated from Stivers High School in 1946. She was active in a theater group, The 4 Players, where she met Jim. They were married June 16, 1951, before Jim left for El Paso where he was stationed during the Korean War. During the ensuing years the three children were born, and they moved to Oakwood. Marilynn taught Sunday school and was a Girl Scout Leader and Cub Scout Den Mother. The kids’ friends affectionately called her mom, and she was well known for having pool parties. Marilynn was a bookkeeper for Carriage Trade and Frame – Henson Asphalt Paving. She was a founding member of Christ United Methodist Church and remained very active. Marilynn was a past vice president and property manager for the Oakwood Historical Society. After retirement, Marilynn and Jim travelled the world and made many new friends. Marilynn was an energetic, fun loving lady, who was devoted to her family and friends.

The family will have a private gathering to share their memories and celebrate her life. We thank Hospice of Dayton for their assistance with mother’s care this past year. Donations may be made in Marilynn’s memory to Hospice of Dayton at 324 Wilmington Ave, Dayton, Ohio 45420 or The Oakwood Historical Society, 1947 Far Hills Ave, Oakwood, Ohio 45419.
