Marilyn P. Holmes, 74, of Beech Grove, IN, passed away on February 15, 2018. She was born May 25, 1943, in Indianapolis, IN, to Norris Edwin Holmes and Velma O. (Nagle) Holmes. She studied at Indiana University and received her Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts. After completing her education, Marilyn enjoyed working and traveling for many years with Delta Airlines until the time of her retirement.
Throughout the years, Marilyn got to see the world and go on many adventures with her job. She never passed up the opportunity and encouraged those around her to do the same. And while she had many joys in life, she found the most enjoyment was the time spent with her family, close friends and her cats. Marilyn is survived by her sister, Janine Holmes; as well as her cousins, Judy Lacey, Phil Nagle, and Donna Brown.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her uncle, Ernest Yeager; aunt, Norma Yeager; uncle, Donald Emerich; aunt, Ruth Emerich; uncle, Ralph Nagle; uncle, Guy Nagle; as well as her cousins, Doug Nagle and Bobbie Jo Johnson.
