Marilyn was born in Church Point to the late Leonard Sonnier and the late Aurlia Istre Sonnier on Aug. 2, 1936. She enjoyed sewing and crocheting, and was a seamstress for many years. She was a devoted parishioner to the First Church of Christ. Marilyn found love and peace while reading her Bible and listening to the beautiful music of Christ.
