After a courageous battle with cancer, Marilyn Kuffa Burkett has gone home to her eternal resting place and is now at peace and pain free. Marilyn passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on June 21, 2022.
Marilyn was born April 10, 1943, in Cleveland, OH to Dominic and Christine (Colletta) DeMarco.
She is survived by her loving husband of 20 years, David; three children: a son, Vincent (Heather) Kuffa, Bella and Carter, daughters, Tracy (Dan) Lewis, Tessa (Russell) Bowman, Spencer Lamar (Katlyn), and Teri (Tony) Enderle, Mitchell and Ava, stepson Thomas Burkett and two children, stepdaughter Jenny (Tyrone) Walcher and four children. Also surviving is brother Paul (Roseanne) DeMarco, lifelong friends Roberta Brosnahan and Lana Melzer, several nieces and nephews, and her four-footed friend Muggsy.
Marilyn loved being surrounded by her family and was proud to tell everyone she had 12 grandkids and one great-grandchild on the way. Marilyn also enjoyed working in her garden and searching for treasures at garage sales with her husband Dave or her friends. She loved spending time with her beloved dog Muggsy, who she rescued in 2018.
Marilyn retired from K-Mart in Sandusky and also worked at Drug Mart in Huron. She remained in contact with several of her past co-workers and cherished the friendships she made.
Marilyn was preceded in death by her parents Dominic and Christine, grandson Keith and many aunts and uncles.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider making a donation to St Jude's.
At Marilyn’s request, there will be no mass or burial service. Instead, the family will have a celebration of life at a later date.
