Marilyn Foreman
Oct. 27, 1936-Dec. 5, 2023
Pleasanton, California/Alameda

Marilyn Porter Foreman was born in Berkeley October 27, 1936. She graduated from Berkeley High in 1954 then UC Berkeley in 1958. She married Berkeley native Don Foreman June 28, 1958 who was in the US Navy and stationed in San Diego. She obtained her teaching credentials from San Diego State then taught in San Diego and San Jose before moving to Pleasanton in 1966 where she taught 3rd grade until her retirement in 1993.

She is survived by sons Steve & Jim, sister in law Wendy, siblings Glen, Paul, Lee and grandchildren Kyle & Korrynn. However because of her matriarchal love her extended family were dozens. Marilyn was a thoughtful and generous soul never forgetting a birthday with cards of kind supportive words with gifts and cash given to a network of loved ones. Marilyn was blessed with an infectious smile and presence that would brighten a room forging life long friendships with quality women groups fondly known as "The God Squad" and "Big Hearted Sisters".

After Don's passing in 2002 she rediscovered love with Frank Williams and went to concerts and travelled the World. Upon Franks death in 2016 she found love again with loyal teenage friend Dick Schulze until her passing with dignity at his home after a battle with cancer and dementia. Marilyn was also involved in the Amador Valley Scholarship selection committee and will forever join Don's name now: The Don and Marilyn Foreman Memorial Scholarship.

Vacations at Donner, snow skiing, Shakespearean Plays, walks with neighbors, reading, weddings, baby showers, golf, traveling, are just a few activities she enjoyed during a GREAT life! A life well-lived during the best era ever she will be dearly missed by many.
