Funeral Service for Marlys Taflin
When: February 13, 2020
Time: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Marlys R. (Melberg) Taflin passed away peacefully on February 10, 2020. Marlys, “the consummate grandmother,” loved children and was loved by them, as well as by everyone who knew her. An Anoka native and life-long Minnesotan, she loved travel and adventure, living for four years in Germany and trekking the Himalayas, among other things. When something interested her she threw herself into it wholeheartedly, whether producing award-winning quilts or sewing closets full of clothes for her grandchildren. Her twinkly smile and sense of humor never left her, even as words and memory failed her towards the end. Preceded in death by her parents, Emma and Louis Melberg, her sister Lucille Parker, and brother Robert. Survived by her loving husband of 61 years, Charles, her siblings Phyllis Reilley (Allen), Muriel Compton, Jack (Louise), and Dan, her children Daniel (Gretchen), David (Cathy), Mary Elafandi (Mohamed), and Lori Laflin (Pat), seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Funeral Service: Thursday, February 13, 11:00 a.m. at Salem Covenant Church, with a gathering 1 hour prior to the service.
