Marilyn Louise Westcott, age 90 of Casnovia, Michigan passed away on March 18, 2021 at home surrounded by her loving family. Marilyn was born in Pontiac, MI on 10/17/30 to Ellsworth and Violet Erhart. At the age of three months Marilyn’s father who worked as a lineman was killed on the job. Marilyn’s mother, Violet, and brother, Don Erhart, age 4, then moved to Sparta to live with their Grandmother on the Eber’s family apple farm. At age eleven, Marilyn and her brother Don got a new loving Father when their mother married Carl “Pete” Anderson of Sparta.
Marilyn graduated from Sparta High School where she met her future husband, Kaye E. Westcott. Kaye and Marilyn were married for 70 years. She is survived by her husband Kaye, and their four children: Kristy Briggs, Gary and Theresa Westcott, Scott and Kathy Westcott, and Sue and Steve Geib; her sister Arlene Westhoven and her brother Charles and Kathie Anderson; as well as 10 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren, and 1 great great grandson. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Don Erhart and his wife Carol.
Marilyn’s history included working alongside her husband in several businesses: including coin operated laundromats, a Marathon Oil Distributorship, and a Livestock Auction Sale.
She enjoyed “artsy crafts” such as decorating their home in Casnovia, basket weaving, furniture refinishing, stained glass; she enjoyed yard work and playing the harmonica. She was a loving Mother, wonderful cook and known for her kindness to others.
