Obituary of Marilyn Lois Habicht

   Marilyn passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of March 17, 2023 at Pueblo Springs Rehabililitation Center for respite care in Tucson, where she only moved a few days earlier. She had been under the wonderful in-home care of Agape Hospice since 2020. Her family is grateful to all those caregivers that protected her from Covid when family was not allowed to visit. Sincere gratitude to Marilyn's dear friend, Linda Redfield, who had helped her since she became home-bound and was with her until the end.  Much appreciation for  Marilyn's dear friend, Shari, from Nebraska, who surprized her on her birthday last year.
   Born in Seattle, Washington to Claude and Myrtle Morgan, who were Navy vets stationed near there after WWII. They moved to NJ to raise Marilyn, a sister and brother. Later, the family moved to Bladensburg, Md. where Marilyn graduated in 1964. She met her husband, Jack, and they raised their children in Riverdale, Md. They loved boating on the Chesapeake Bay! The family moved to California in 1977.
   Marilyn is survived by her loving sister, Claudia Morgan Fort (Ca.) and her son, Jesse Daniel Fort, his son, Kaden Michael Fort and brother Peter Frank Morgan and family. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Jack (John G. Habicht) and devoted son, John, Jr.  After Jack's early death, Marilyn followed John's occupational moves to Lincoln, Ne., Nashville, Tn. and eventually to Tucson and Sahuarita. John was the most wonderful son who always took care of his Mom. Her health declined steadily after his sudden death in 2014. 
  Marilyn's love for Jack, John and "Max" (her dog companion that brought her much comfort during some difficult days of grief) were happy memories she shared that brought a sense of peace to Marilyn in her final hours.  May they all be together again in light and love.
