Obituary of Marilyn G. Huff
Marilyn G Huff, 86, a resident of Gansevoort, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and was reunited with her husband Rev. Charles G. Huff in paradise, on Wednesday, March 15, 2023, at her home surrounded by her loving family.
Born February 18, 1937, in Elmira, NY. She was the middle child of the late Harold and Ruth (Pearson) Green.
In 1951, at the age of 14, Marilyn contracted Tuberculosis. She spent over a year at the Undercliff Sanatorium, in Meriden, CT. Though Marilyn recovered from TB, the scarring on her lungs would be a complication throughout the rest of her life.
In 1963, while visiting her parents, the head usher at church caught her eye. He too was smitten. As one would say, the rest is history. In 1964 Rev Charles G Huff and Marilyn Green married and began a life of service as pastors. Despite the fact that she faced many health complications and serious illnesses, Marilyn’s greatest joy was to love people. First her family and then others. She tended to “collect” children as many would come to call her Mom Huff. Right until the very end one could always count on her to answer her phone, pray with you, make you smile and give Godly wisdom.
In addition to her parents, Marilyn was predeceased by all of her siblings; Kenneth (Esther) Green, Vivian (Robert) Birdsall, Marianne “Babe” (Arthur) Mood and Stephen Green. Her sister-in-law Marilyn Spiegel, brother-in-law Gilbert Scholl. As well as her nieces Patricia Green and Pamela Green.
Survivors include her children, Christopher (Rose) Huff of Amsterdam; Laura (Todd) Weils of Queensbury and Cynthia Huff of Gansevoort; her sister-in-law Shery Green; 10 grandchildren, Mitchell (Marley), Amanda (Earl), Jeffrey (Courtney), Kyle, Rilie, Victoria, Gabriel, Dmitri (Lauren), Emery and Roman; 7 great grandchildren; Joshua, Cooper, Haleigh, Adelynn, Aubrey, Owyn, and Jaxson; sister-in-law Ethelyn Scholl, sister-in-law Beverly (Alvin) Weesner; several nieces and nephews.
A Memorial Service will be held at 1 pm Saturday, March 25, 2023, at Calvary’s Family Life Center, 100 Sherman Ave., Glens Falls, NY with Rev. Bill Harrington officiating. Family, friends, and members of the church may greet the family and pay their respects from 12 to 1 pm prior to the service.
A private burial will be in Prospect Hill Cemetery, Schuylerville at a later date.
Memorials can be made in her memory to Calvary’s Family Life Center to benefit Operation Christmas Child.
