Born in Portsmouth, NH, in 1929 to the late Frederick and Pearl Winn Holland. Marilyn was predeceased by her husband Randolph M. Hale and sister Joyce Holland Browning. She is survived by her children Kimberly Hale Carney (Robert) and Clark Hale (Amy) and grandchildren Marilyn, Victoria and Haley Carney and William, Anthony, and Christopher Hale. Marilyn grew up in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

After they were married in 1961, Marilyn and her late husband Randy lived in Bethesda and then were early residents of Montgomery Village, where they raised their two children. During her retirement on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, she was an active volunteer and gardener and a member of the Queen Anne County and Talbot County Master Gardeners, fundraising committee of St. Martin’s Ministries in Ridgely, curriculum committee of the Institute of Adult Learning of Chesapeake College, and the Talbot County League of Women Voters.
