Marylyn Dolan Joseph, 87, of Whitefish, Montana, formerly of Wayzata, Minnesota, and Denver, Colorado, died Oct. 16, 2018. Marylyn was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, where she graduated from the Convent of the Visitation and St. Catherine University. As a young woman, Marylyn lived and worked in Sun Valley, Aspen, and Glacier Park. Later she worked in social service in New York, Washington, D.C., and Denver.

Marylynís eloquence, dignity, and ability to connect with others known and unknown, and her selfless life, inspired her family and friends. Her originality, kindness, boundless compassion, exquisite taste, word mastery, and purity of mind and spirit, are unforgettable. She denied everything frivolous, inauthentic, vulgar or avaricious. For her no day was like any other, because of her active mind. She lived deliberately, appreciated fine things, and inspired othersí trust. Her stories enthralled and held an audience. In Marylynís presence no one was a stranger. She loved family, art, her beloved dogs Zach, Molly, Max, Missy, Bert, and Oso, and cooking for the entire neighborhood.

Marylyn is predeceased by her parents George and Margaret Dolan, and her former husband George Joseph, Jr. Survivors are her sister Susan LeCoq (John), and brother Bill Dolan (Jane), daughter Victoria Kronberg (Victor), and sons William, Johnathan, and George Joshua (Stephanie); grandchildren Ross and Wyatt Kronberg, and George and Jackson Joseph; nieces Elizabeth Currier, Jennifer LeCoq, Andrea LeCoq Patterson, Katherine McGowan, and Emily Hanavan; and nephews John LeCoq, John, Andrew, Thomas, and William Dolan; and countless friends and admirers. A celebration of Marylynís life will be held at a later date. Memorials are preferred to St. Catherine University (Marylyn Dolan Joseph Endowed Award for Creative Writing), or local public broadcasting stations.
