Marilyn “Pat” Dahlman was a longtime resident of Des Moines. She died peacefully and was led to Heaven by angels.

She was a beautiful lady and when people saw pictures of her as a young adult, they often thought it was a picture of Marilyn Monroe.

She had the biggest heart and it gave her great joy to give to and help others. She was always planning the next thoughtful surprise for her family and friends.

She loved music. Her family often heard her singing as she baked delicious sweets to share with her family and friends.

Marilyn enjoyed traveling with her daughter to beautiful places such as New Orleans, Hawaii, Cancun, San Francisco, San Antonio and many others.

Marilyn enjoyed competing in the Prairie Meadows Kentucky Derby hat contest. She entered for 4 years and won Honorable Mention, 3rd Place, 2nd Place and 1st Place in that order.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Merel Mulchy and Gladys Russell, her husband Kenneth, son Randy and sister Jean.

Marilyn is survived by her son Gary (Shari), her daughter Kimberly and her sister, Diana Jacqui Case.
