Marilyn Joyce  Chavis
Marilyn Joyce Chavis, 79, of Umatilla, Florida passed away on April 30, 2021.

She was born July 27, 1941 in Eustis, Florida to Edward and Alvie (Frier) Gandy. Marilyn had several careers, but enjoyed her time as a cafeteria assistant at local schools. She was a member of the Umatilla Church of God. Marilyn loved Bingo, playing Rummy and garbage with friends and family and the Lifetime TV series. She loved butterflies, reading romance novels and family outings to Alexander Springs and the beach. Few things gave her greater joy than her family, especially her grand and great-grandchildren. Her most favorite pastime of all was being the “Night Rider”.

We all love you.

She was preceded in death by her brothers: John Edward Gandy and James Monroe Gandy and her sister Irene Gandy Smith.

Marilyn dedicated herself to the Lord and kept her faith to the end.
