Marilyn Erickson - 1963
BIO & Picture from 40th Reunion

Marilyn (Erickson) Skipper - March 15, 2003

I graduated from MU in August 1966.  I began teaching in Raytown, Missouri and then got married.  I finished my 30-year teaching career (second and third grad) at Russell Boulevard School in Columbia.  In 1991, I was selected as the Columbia Community Teachers Elementary Educator of the Year.  I served as Music Director at Hartsburg Baptist Church and Grandview Baptist Church (both near Columbia) along with teaching.

After my retirement in 1996, I became state president of Delta Kappa Gamma, an international group of women educators.  I now serve as International Finance Chairman of this group.  Currently, I am state president of Alpha Delta Kappa, another international sorority of women educators.  I also serve as Music Director at Hartsburg Baptist Church again.  I am also Region 4 Vice President in Missouri Retired Teachers Association.

Traveling is my hobby.  I have been to Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Caribbean, Canada, Germany, Austria, Middle East, Egypt, as well as much of the United States.  I enjoy piecing and hand quilting quilts as well as cross-stitch.

After 31 years of marriage, I was divorced in 2000.  I still live in Columbia and love to travel.
