Obituary for Marilyn Rhoda Case

Marilyn Rhoda (Peterson) Case, 80, of Cromwell and formerly of Portland, wife of Leon R. Case, II, passed away on July 12, 2017 at Pilgrim Manor in Cromwell. Born in Middletown, she was the daughter of the late C. Elmer and Rhoda (Baldwin) Peterson.
Marilyn demonstrated her love of nursing as an instructor, class advisor and friend. She spread comfort from coast to coast with gifts of fine handcrafted teddy bears and enhanced the serenity of her home with pieces of beautiful needlework. Her adventuresome side took her camping up and down the New England coast with her friend Ellie and she brought smiles to many faces singing the good old songs to the tune of the Glastonbury Ukulele Band. She was a member of Bethany Lutheran Church in Cromwell.
Besides her husband of 54 years, she is survived by a son, Douglas C. Case and his wife Andrea of Wayland, MA; two grandchildren, Jack and Renee Case of Wayland, MA and several nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, July 18th at 10:00 am at Bethany Lutheran Church, 50 Court Street, Cromwell. Interment will be in the Swedish Cemetery in Portland.
