Marilyn M. Nair, 38, died September 20, 2003 from injuries sustained in an accident, after the motorcylce she was riding collided with a deer. A Funeral Mass will be held at 10a.m. Thursday, September 25 at St. Joseph's Catholic Church.

Marilyn was born on November 20, 1964 in Carroll, Iowa. The family moved to Des Moines in 1970, where Marilyn graduated from East High School. She had previously been married to Kelly Carlson, father of their son, Gary. Marilyn enjoyed motorcycle riding, traveling and dancing but her greatest joys were her son, Gary, her fiance, Matt and her family and friends.

She is survived by her son, Gary Carlson; parents, Robert J. and JoAnn Nair; fiance, Matt Gliem; sister, Darlene Nair and husband, Dennis; brother, Robert G. Nair; several nieces and nephews, all of Des Moines; and grandmothers, Ellen Christensen of Audubon and Shirley Christensen of Dedham. Marilyn was loved by many.
