Age 82, Edina, MN, passed away on January 29, 2013, after a short courageous battle with brain cancer. Marilyn was born on June 24, 1930 in Hutchinson, MN and was raised in Silver Lake, MN where she graduated from high school. Marilyn enjoyed numbers, and after graduation from business school, worked in many positions utilizing her numerical abilities, eventually retiring from a position as Office Manager at Rudy Luther Toyota. Soon after Marilyn retired, she married Rick Hultman. Marilyn and Rick had an enjoyable life together that included numerous vacations, and homes and friends in South Padre Island, TX and Shell Lake, WI. Marilyn and Rick loved the Minnesota State Fair and it was not uncommon for them to attend the Fair for six days in a row. Marilyn was a smart, strong-willed, independent, and hard-working woman. She arranged Hager family get-togethers and was a great help-mate and support to her husband, Rick, who has struggled with Alzheimer’s for the last seven years. Her family thanks the staff at Southdale Fairview Hospital, particularly Dr. Rousey, who provided care and guidance for Marilyn’s final journey. Also, the family gives special thanks to her sister-in-law, Rosemary Hultman, for her support and wisdom in moving Marilyn and Rick from Texas to Minnesota; niece, Tracy Hemeon, for assisting Marilyn and Rick in their move to assisted living and making them comfortable while there; and friend, Joe Ricco, for looking after Rick during Marilyn’s hospitalization in Texas.
