Marilyn Frances Romines, daughter of Elmer Ernest Romines and Ruth Rogers Romines, died Jan. 1, 2023, in Alexandria, Va. She was 76 years old

I had the opportunity of accidently running into Marilyn at a museum in Washington DC viewing the Hope Diamond a few years ago.  It was a very pleasant experience and she was just as nice then as she was back in Houston High School.  She will be missed.  RIP.

Marilyn sat beside me in American History and I credit her for helping me pass Miss Mcvays class. Marilyn was such a nice, sweet and inteligent friend and classmate. She will be greatly missed by all of our class of 64 HHS  classmates.

I was saddened to learn about Marilyn's passing.  I did not know her well, but remember that she was a very nice person and probably the smartest one in the class.  I travel to D.C. frequently and thought numerous times over the years that I should drop by to say hello and get her recommendations about art museums.  I regret that I never did, and wish that I had gotten to know her better.  My condolences to her family, friends, and classmates.

I remember Marilyn's special wit and humor.  We sat side by side in those desks in junior high, so she was one of the first persons I met in Houston. We were also together in the junior class play.  i also remember a bunch of us piling into her convertable for a little cruising.  Much missed. RIP!
