Marilyn McGuire

d. June 3, 2022

Marilyn McGuire graduated to Heaven on Friday, June 3, 2022. She was born Apr 25, 1932, and was 90 years young. While she grew up in Barnseville, GA, she has called Atlantic Beach, FL home since 1964. 

Marilyn, aka “the candy lady,” was a true servant of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She used every opportunity to minister to those she encountered and never met a stranger. From volunteering with the American Red Cross to establishing her own clothing ministry, she spent her life serving her community and those in need. She absolutely loved venturing out to yard sales and thrift stores, with the occasional dumpster dive, of course. She touched the lives of countless people in her lifetime and will truly be missed.

Marilyn is survived by her son Bobby Woodard (Cathy), daughter Kaye Kirkland, adopted son David Moorefield (Kathy), adopted daughter Patsey Duce, 10 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren, and 5 great great grandchildren.

She will be celebrated with a gathering on Wednesday, June 8, 2022, from 6-8pm at Quinn-Shalz Family Funeral Home, Jacksonville Beach, FL.
