Marilyn Ann Bott
Jan. 23, 1942 – April 29, 2021
Marilyn Ann Bott, age 79, passed away under hospice care at her Portland home of 53 years. She was born in Duluth, Minnesota, January 23, 1942, to Elmer R. and Lydia Viola (Perala) Johnson. Marilyn grew up in Clarkston, Washington graduating from Clarkston High School in 1960 living briefly in Wallowa and LaGrande before settling in Portland.
Marilyn enjoyed gardening, sewing, bowling, and fishing until an auto accident and health issues limited her mobility. She loved animals, the Oregon Coast, watching sports, and was an enthusiastic Portland Trailblazer’s fan. She was preceded in death by both parents, sister, Diane K. Bridges, and companion, Dale Russell, Jr. Marilyn is survived by her former husband Fred Bott, their two children, Debbie, and Daniel; grandsons, Collin, and Jared; granddaughter, Lacy; niece, Cindy; several cousins, and her dog, Sadie.
An intimate celebration of life will be held at the beach on a future date.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Marilyn’s name to the animal or children’s charity of your choice would be a meaningful remembrance.
