Marilyn, an entertainer at heart, was a proud musician capable of playing several instruments, including the drums and violin. Many of her younger days were spent enthusiastically drumming in the Terrebonne High School band. On occasion, she played the drums in a band with her father, George Harry St. Pierre, who was also a noted musician and music teacher. Also, fondly remembered as a comedian, she found joy in making people laugh. She was truly unique and often referred to as one of a kind.
Marilyn will be remembered for being thoughtful, kind and always willing to help her family when they needed her. She is loved dearly and will be greatly missed by all those who had the pleasure to know her.
Chauvin Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of Marilyn Catherine St. Pierre Pitre.
