Marilyn Johan (Meyer) Spooner, 96 a longtime resident of Orange, MA, most recently of Pittsfield, MA died Tuesday September 22, 2020 at Berkshire Place after a short period of declining health.
She was born in Fresno, CA on June 13, 1924, a daughter of Carl F. and Grace W. (Miller) Meyer. She attended schools in Worcester, MA and graduated from Classical High School. Marilyn also graduated from Bates College in Lewiston, ME.
After her college graduation, Marilyn worked at the Boston Children’s Museum. Upon her marriage in 1947, she and Ralph moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana where she worked in the Fort Wayne Public Library and the Department of Public Works. Returning to Ralph’s hometown of Orange, MA, she taught Orange Community kindergarten and was a realtor for Burbank Realty in Athol, MA. Marilyn was an active member of the community, working as a volunteer tax consultant for AARP and was the governor's appointee to the Orange Housing Authority. She was a member of the Orange Elementary School Committee and served as a trustee of Wheeler Memorial Library and of the Orange Scholarship Foundation. Marilyn was a member of the First Universalist Church in Orange and of its Unity Club. She served on the Orange Historical Society and was a member of the Athenaeum organization.

Marilyn had many varied interests from quilting to local history. She loved the interplay of words whether on the Scrabble board, in creative writing projects or as the family “poet’ who penned rhyming poems for every gift and family occasion. She embraced all forms of technology, researching the latest political or financial trends and charting the family genealogy. Marilyn loved her family and her friends and spent many happy summers with them at her lake community.

Predeceased by her husband Ralph E. Spooner in 1990, she is survived by her daughter, Jane Spooner and her husband Richard Bargeron of Shelburne Falls, MA; daughter, Carol Spooner of Randolph, NJ; her son James G. Spooner and his wife Jacqueline of Athol, MA and her daughter, Lauren Wick and her husband Peter of Lanesboro, MA. She also leaves six grandchildren: Colin, Adam, Brianna, Michael, Lindsey, and Daniel; two great grandchildren: Ethan and Vivien; one sister, Ruth Butler of Austin, TX and one nephew, Mark.

Carol, Jane, Jimmy and Lauren, So very sorry for the loss of such a wonderful woman. I always looked forward to her notes and keeping in touch with her. She was so vibrant and kind. I wil miss hearing from her and knowing she could tell stories about mom. They enjoyed their travels together and had a great time. I still have the flowered couch that mom bought from her when she moved. May be time for an upgrade. She was a wonderful and brilliant lady who will be missed by all.
Love Kathy and Dena

Dear Jim, Jane and Carol
So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She was a very nice lady and I have happy memories of her, either at your home or riding home from Mahar after school. I know she was very active in her church and we are planning to remember her with a donation. May she rest in peace and our thoughts are with you all. Jay & Cathy Whitney

Marilyn Spooner, a most lovely neighbor and expert driver to school. At my niece 's wedding, she didn't want to hear too much about driving us to school with her flannel gown,robe and slippers. Quite a lady! I went thru her side garage door to get those wonderful Nancy Drew books. My husband and I and my Alden family keep you all in our prayers and look forward to that grand reunion in heaven.
