Marilyn was born in San Angelo, Texas to Charles and Dorothy Stahl. Marilyn grew up in San Angelo and graduated from Lake View High School. She then went on the get her bachelor's degree in business administration and her RN from Angelo State University. Marilyn worked as a nurse at Rivercrest Hospital and Community Medical Center. Through all the positions she held throughout her life, none were more important to her than being a mother. In 1976, she married Jody Shields, and had three children. Marilyn loved her family with everything she had. This could especially be seen during the Holidays, that meant so much to her. There was never too much family around for Marilyn.
She lived every day to the fullest and couldn't bear sitting still. She enjoyed traveling, music, good food, spending time on the water and being outdoors with her family and friends. There was never a night that hanging out on the patio wasn't an option.
One of the greatest joys in Marilyn's life was being "Gigi"to her four granddaughters. She was absolutely the best grandmother anyone could ask for. She rarely missed a game, recital, or program and couldn't wait for the next adventure with the grandkids.
In 2008, she met the love of her life, Les Barker and they were married on July 2, 2018. They spent almost all their time together. Whether it was driving around in the jeep, working in the yard or the house, they loved just being together. They traveled all over North America, including Canada, several States, and countless beaches in Mexico and Florida. Recently, they fulfilled a life long dream of traveling throughout Italy.
