Marilyn A. Horan, 83, passed away on Sunday, October 31, 2021 at Morning Breeze in Greensburg. She was born on October 5, 1938 in Millhousen, Indiana the daughter of Charles E. and Theodora M. (Moorman) Horan.
Marilyn was a lifetime member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Millhousen. She served the church as eucharistic minister, sacristan, and was a vital part of the funeral meal program. She began her medical career working beside Dr. Bob Porter in Westport before moving on to Decatur County Memorial Hospital where she was a Clinical Laboratory Scientist, retiring after 38+ years. When the words loving, compassionate, generous, and caring are spoken, we think of Marilyn.
Marilyn was well known in Millhousen for her famous popcorn balls she would hand out every Halloween, a tradition she continued on from her mom. If you lived in Millhousen, you started on the west end of town just to be sure you didn’t miss out.
