Mary Marilyn (Stadelman) Henderson died on Jan. 19, 2019. Her husband of 63 years, Edward, predeceased her in 2016. She was born March 15, 1932 to parents John and Lillian (Gillan) Stadelman, of Long Island, N.Y. Marilyn lived on Cooneymus Road, Block Island, for years. Her children continue the journey: Deborah Lutz, of Virginia Beach, Virginia; Susan Seibert of Bozeman, Montana; Allison Anderson, Summit, New Jersey and Block Island; and Thomas Henderson, Las Vegas, NV. She had 11 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

Marilyn and Ed were both cremated and will be buried together at sea off the New England coast by the U.S. Navy as befitting a Navy Commander and his faithful and beautiful wife. This was their expressed wish.

Donations in her honor in lieu of flowers may be made to The Nature Conservancy, the Humane Society, or to the Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation, 4131 Swenson St., Las Vegas, NV 89119.

Fair winds and following seas, Mom. We love you forever.
