Marilyn was born August 3, 1935, in Des Moines, IA, to Frank and Emma (Kauzlarich) Mihalovich.

Marilyn was a homemaker her whole life, but she was also a farm wife. She grew up a city girl, but learned to become a farm wife and could do everything she needed to. She did work for a time at Principal Financial Group as an administrative assistant and also drove a school bus for a time.

The most important part of life to Marilyn was her family. She was the family cheerleader and was always there to cheer her kids and grandkids on for any event they were a part of. Marilyn loved to have family gatherings, especially during the holidays. Christmas was a special time for her and her family to get together and spend time with each other.

Marilyn is survived by her brother, Frank Mihalovich of San Diego, CA; children, Marilyn (Pat) (Chuck) Peacock of Saint Peters, MO, Mary Jean (Don) Raatz of St. Louis, MO, Donna Niemeyer of Grimes, IA; grandchildren, Michelle (Ben) Brown, Christine (Dan) Stehr, Debbie (Andy) Steenhoek, Jessica (Dillon) Powers, Alec (Emily) Niemeyer, Nicholas Niemeyer; 10 great grandchildren; as well as sister-in-law, Margaret Ann Dluhos of Waukee, IA. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, John McIntyre; daughter, Diane Anderson; grandchild, Cindy Anderson; sister-in-law, Joetta Mihalovich and brother-in-law, Eugene Dluhos.
