Marilyn Rose Barbato of Chicago passed away peacefully on May 14, 2020 at her home in El Dorado Hills, California. Marilyn was born Marilyn Rose Strauss in Chicago, Illinois to Harry and Eloise Strauss on August 7, 1929. In 1943, Marilyn moved with her family to Glendale, California where she attended Glendale High School, graduating in 1947. She married in 1949 and raised three children (Gary, Diane, Robert) with her husband, Mario Barbato in Van Nuys, California. She loved the Catholic Church and was very active in the St. Bridget parish she attended, volunteering her time as her kids attended school. After the kids were raised, Marilyn worked as an accountant for the St. Euphrasia parish in Granada Hills, California until her retirement in 1988. She lived at the beach in Port Hueneme and also enjoyed Lake Tahoe at her “summer” home in Incline Village, Nevada. In 1997, Marilyn and her husband moved to a lovely home in El Dorado Hills. Along with being a lector and Eucharistic minister at the Holy Trinity Church, she loved playing bingo at the senior center. She also enjoyed her quiet time going to the library, as she was a prolific reader, and knitting beautiful Afghans for her family. Marilyn especially loved seeing and visiting with all her kids and grandkids who she was so very proud of…The love had blossomed within her for all to embrace. Marilyn is preceded in death by her parents, her brother Bud, her sister Helene, and her husband Mario. Marilyn is survived by her two sisters (Shirley & Beryl, her twin sister), her three children (their spouses) and eight grandchildren. A mass and funeral service will be held at Holy Trinity Church and Green Valley Mortuary followed with a celebration of Marilyn at the home of Rob and Diane George in El Dorado Hills. The date has yet to be determined.
