Marilyn Elizabeth Joyce Aramini was born on October 4th, 1935, in Boston Massachusetts to John Winthrop Joyce and Mary Elizabeth (Calendar) Joyce. Shortly after Marilyn's birth the family moved to West Hartford Connecticut, and later to Manchester Connecticut, where Marilyn would attend Washington Street Elementary School, followed by Manchester High School, where she graduated in 1953.
During her teenage years Marilyn enjoyed serving the needs of others as a Nurse's Aide at Manchester Memorial Hospital. Upon graduation from high school, she worked for 5 years as a teletype operator with United Aircraft in East Hartford Connecticut, until she met the Love of her life, Julio Daniel Aramini.
In Avon Connecticut, Marilyn and Julio were united in marriage in 1957. They were blessed with 5 beautiful children, and enjoyed 57 years of marriage, up until her beloved Julio was called home to the Lord on August 22, 2014.
Marilyn was committed to the Love of her family, and to the Love of Jesus Christ, through her Catholic Faith. Marilyn served the needs of children and their families as a Religious Education teacher for a combined tenure of 20 years at Saint Matthew's Parish in Tolland Connecticut (1963-1972), and The Saint Jerome's Mission in Chester New Hampshire (1972-1989). She continued her mission of service in a less visible role when she and her husband retired to Maine where they became a part of the Saint Frances's of Assisi Catholic Church community in Belfast Maine (1989-2004). Towards the end of her life, Marilyn became an active lay member of the Associate Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. At the time of her eternal homecoming, Marilyn was a current member of The Saint Catherine's Catholic community in Manchester New Hampshire.
