Marilynne was born on Dec. 28, 1936, in Klamath Agency Hospital to Alice Wright and Irwin Johnson and lived in Chiloquin all her life. She was a loving mother to her children, but also kept her door open to any and all family members and their children in time of need. She was a teacher of the Word of God, a Prayer Warrior. She showed everyone who Jesus is, having a letter writing ministry, always giving glory to God. She loved to fellowship and devoted her time to spreading the Word of God. She traveled to camp meetings across the country from Oklahoma to British Columbia, Canada and even had her own camp meeting in Chiloquin. Marilynne touched so many lives with her testimony. She had an inner strength and a powerful message when she shared. Her prayers were generous; she prayed for everyone daily. She loved traveling and Jesus always made a way. She enjoyed traveling to powwows, rodeos, elder trips and camp meetings. She loved spending time outdoors, taking her family hunting, fishing and camping at the family camp at Rocky Ford. She taught her family to gather fruit, wocus, roots, berries and wild plums. She loved going to Huckleberry Mountain during huckleberry season. Elder Trips were also one of her favorite pastimes; she was always excited to go and looked forward to where the Elders would be traveling next. She was an avid supporter of her kids’ activities throughout their lives, including beading, Indian dancing, making moccasins, powwowing and sports. She loved sports and growing up played softball and basketball and bowled on a team, “The Alley Cats,” with all her sisters, sponsored by her mother, Alice J. Wright. Marilynne also enjoyed watching games as well; she always went to high school basketball, football and baseball games and always supported the Chiloquin native youth. She enjoyed going to the All-Indian tournaments every year and always watched her favorite NBA teams the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat. She was a pillar in the community, loved and respected by everyone, a Prayer Warrior to all and she will be deeply missed.
