November 21, 1946 — January 21, 2018

Marilyn (McClain) Reiley, the daughter of Carl and Irene Elizabeth (Thorne) McClain, was born November 21, 1946 in Shenandoah, Iowa. Marilyn entered eternal rest on Sunday, January 21, 2018, at Bergan Mercy Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska, at the age of seventy-one years.
Marilyn attended school in Red oak and graduated from Red Oak High School with the class of 1964. Marilyn was united in marriage to Robert James “Jim” Reiley on August 15, 1970 in Reno, Nevada. She and Jim lived many places while Jim served in the United States Air Force. In 1993 the family settled in Bridgewater. Marilyn was a lifelong care giver working as a nurse’s aid for the Union 1199 in New York, and most recently the Good Samaritan Society in Fontanelle until her retirement in 1996.
She had many things that brought her joy in life, including cooking, watching HGTV, and gardening. Her dogs were especially important to her. Marilyn was also a member of the Carl United Methodist Church.

Schmitt of Walnut, Katie A. Schmitt of Atlantic, and Erin D. Schmitt of Atlantic; two great-grandchildren on the way; and many nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
