Editor: We asked our friend Marilyn Kaukola to share a little about herself.

I was born and raised in Braintree, Mass. and educated there through high school. I had one older brother, Jack, and Nancy White is my younger sister. I attended an Episcopal church with my mom.

 I met my future husband, Bob, and we married before he went into the Army and was stationed in Kentucky. After his military service, we moved back to Massachusetts, to Quincy, where I was a homemaker and mother to three daughters. Bob began an oil business, and we built a house in Hingham, Mass., where the girls were raised. We owned land in East Weymouth and when the MBTA came through, we no longer owned the land!

In 1979, we moved to Pittsfield; my husband passed away in 2005 and in 2010, I moved to Heritage Heights in Concord. Therefore, I am very grateful for the church’s bus ministry.
