Marilyn Joyce Farris

June 23, 1950 ~ May 04, 2024

Marilyn Joyce Farris, age 73, of Sebastian, Florida passed away at home surrounded by family on May 4, 2024. She was a beloved wife, mother and grandmother, sister and aunt.

Marilyn loved the spending time at the beach and discovering and collecting treasures from the ocean.  She enjoyed spending her retirement in the Florida sunshine with her family. In keeping with Marilyn’s love of the beach, her ashes will be spread at sea at a later date.

Marilyn was married for 46 years to her husband, John Farris, and raised two daughters, Tracy Guinaugh and Christy Farris. She was the Grammy who loved to spoil her grandsons Michael Guinaugh and Matthew Guinaugh and was thrilled to welcome Matt’s new wife Madison to the family.

Others left to cherish her memory include her sisters, Frances Geiger and Antoinette Davis, along with numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her sister JoAnn Williams and both of her parents.

Marilyn’s love of gardening made the world brighter and in lieu of a service, the family invites friends wishing to honor Marilyn to add a flowering plant to their garden this summer in remembrance of her beautiful spirit.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
