Our beloved “Mimi”, Marilyn Corey Marsh of Corona del Mar, California, passed away peacefully on September 11, 2022.
Born on January 25, 1935, in Pasadena, California, she was the daughter of tennis pro, Walter Wesbrook and homemaker, Nina Wesbrook. She spent many years at the Huntington Sheraton tennis courts with her father playing tennis and perfecting her game.
She graduated from Pasadena High School and went on to attend USC for her bachelor’s degree in education. She dedicated her life to children as she taught in the Pasadena school system for several years. She then retired to focus on raising her children and became very involved in everything from Brownies and PTA to National Charity League. After raising her two daughters in San Marino, she and Gary moved to Corona del Mar and have lived there for over 30 years. She became an integral part of her grandchildren’s lives as she attended each one of their sporting events and life celebrations. Her sense of humor and zest for fun was contagious and she had many lifelong friends who loved her. She was immensely proud of her family and leaves nothing behind but beautiful memories.
She is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, Gary Marsh of Corona del Mar: two daughters; Jennifer Mannon and husband Mark of Newport Beach; and Kimberly Gessford and husband John of Corona del Mar and five grandchildren who loved her dearly: Morgan, Joseph, Charlie, Libby, and Ellie.
