Marilyn Marie Proctor Calhoun, age 86 was born May 12, 1934. She went home on May 26, 2020 at Mosaic Hospital in St Joseph Missouri. Just like her daddy, she was born on the family farm west of Grant City, MO. Marilyn’s parents were Cecil and Geneva Allison Proctor.

Marilyn attended Echo Dell country school and graduated from Grant City High School in 1951.
In April 1952 she married Jack Calhoun. They had spent 50 years together when Jack died in 2002. Jack and Marilyn had 2 children, Linda Marie Matson (Ron) and Allyn Duane Calhoun (Lois Plantenberg).
They lived many years in Grant City before moving to Pattonsburg, MO. Later, Jack and Marilyn returned to Grant City.

Marilyn was a generous care giver to all around her. She was a 4H leader in both Grant City and Pattonsburg as well as a Sunday School teacher. Marilyn treasured her church families at Mt Vernon Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Pattonsburg United Methodist Church and Grant City United Methodist Church.

Besides her parents and husband, Marilyn was preceded in death by sister and brother in law Shirley and Bob Burress, brother and sister in law, Larry and Shirley Proctor and her niece, Sara Burress Hadley

Virginia Frear Marilyn was a very kind and caring lady.

It is so hard to day goodbye to somebody who meant so much to so many people. There are so many memories, so much laughter, so many hugs and tears. She may have had only 2 biological children and 5 grandchildren, but she and Jack had HUNDREDS of children and grandchildren of the heart. I remember when Brandon was about 12 or 13, at the supper table I was talking about a conversation that I had just had with Marilyn on the phone. She had taken Jack to a Dr. appt, I think at the VA(?) and a doctor had stopped her in the elevator and talked about her scar. I don't even remember what the Dr. said now, but I was telling the story at the dinner table. Brandon got SO angry with me! He kept insisting that she had no scar. I was telling a friend at work the next day because Brandon was so mad at me. Tom said, Debbie, Brandon sees with the eyes of the heart. The eyes of the heart see only the beauty. Marilyn was like that. She either kept that childlike ability or had simply learned to see the world with the eyes of the heart. When Marilyn looked at you, she only saw the beauty in you and you knew how much you were loved. What a blessing.
Marilyn's faith was so strong and I know that she is rejoicing with Jesus at a huge party in Heaven right now, but I'm going to miss her so much.
Love to all the kids and grandkids. Remember the blessings!

As a child, I remember the family reunions and picnics, really fun times, that brought our families together. Marilyn was always there gathering memories of relationships and events. She was always willing to share those memories that so enriched our lives. As the get-togethers got smaller and less often and families drifted apart, Marilyn became my family historian. She didn’t know a stranger. If you were family or the friend of a family member, she knew everything about you…. your birthdate, what school you attended, who your friends were, who you married and what your kids’ birthdates and names were. Marilyn always made you feel welcome and at home around her. She and her wealth of knowledge will be missed by everyone.
