Marilyn R. Holtz passed away peace-fully after a long battle with cancer on Saturday, February 16, 2019, at the age of 75. She was originally from Chicago, Illinois and moved to Arizona in 1976.
In 1996 she became a resident of Payson, AZ where she and her husband Herman Holtz quickly became business owners and treasured members of the community. She enjoyed volunteering with numerous organizations and serving in the Elks Lodge.
Marilyn is survived by her husband, Herman; daughters, Suzanne Akre (Ron) and Sherri Parker (Jonathon); her grandchildren, Eric (Caylen), Kayleigh, Thomas (Alyssa), Riley, Creath, and Kristina; nieces and nephews, Darlene (Brett), Brian (Jessica), and Helen.
At Marilyn’s request, no funeral will be held. A celebration of life event will be arranged at a later date. The family would like to extend a special thanks to her loving caregivers, Ginger, Nastasia, Ligia and hospice nurse Susan (HOV). They humbly cared for her with gentleness, kindness, and compassion. We will be forever grateful for the important part you all played in her life.
