Marilyn Mae Herrboldt was born on Monday, November 26, 1934 at Scotland, South Dakota to Robert and Alice (Descombaz) Schlecter. She was raised on the family farm and attended the Brown Country School through the 8th grade. She later attended a trade school in Mitchell where she learned to sew professionally. Marilyn was united in marriage to Calvin Herrboldt on September 20, 1953. She was a devoted farm wife and mother who was strong in her faith. She spent many hours reading her Bible and other devotional books and also enjoyed watching Billy Graham on television. Marilyn enjoyed taking pictures and collecting angels. She loved to crochet and sew and made many afghans and pillows for her family. One of her favorite hobbies was researching her family tree, including special family members in Germany. Marilyn loved spending time with her grandchildren and one of the many things for which she will be remembered fondly is her wonderful baking, especially her peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. She was a member of the Scotland United Church of Christ, where she was active in the UCC Women’s Fellowship, and she was also a member of the Red Hat Society of Scotland. Marilyn passed away on Wednesday, December 16, 2009 at the Good Samaritan Society of Scotland at the age of 75 years and 21 days.
Grateful for having shared Marilyn’s life are her husband, Calvin Herrboldt of Scotland; a son, Jack (Jacque) Herrboldt of Scotland; a daughter, Monica Boers of Gardner, Kansas; five grandchildren: Ashley Teipel, Hailey Herrboldt, Tracy Herrboldt, Cole Boers and Megan Boers; and three sisters: Geraldine (LeRoy) Herrboldt of Olivet, Velda (Glen) Heckenlaible of Menno, and Verletta Egan of Vancouver, Washington. Marilyn is also survived by her friend and caregiver, Barb Cisar, who will be a part of Marilyn’s family forever.
Marilyn was preceded in death by her parents, and a grandson, J.J. Herrboldt.

Calvin, Jack, Monica, and families: I'm so sorry for your loss. What a lady! She was a special person who always showed me love and acceptance whenever I went to your home (which was a LOT). I always looked forward to her Christmas cards and letters and enjoyed her unique sense of humor. She was one in a million and will be missed greatly. I'm sorry I couldn't be with you today, but my thoughts and prayers are with you. I'm so thankful for the hour I spent with her on Dec. 4th. I know she's resting comfortably with Jesus. Love you!
