Marilyn Ellen Selis (nee Krieger) age 88 of Allendale passed away peacefully on October 7, 2020. Beloved wife of Edward Selis of Allendale. Loving mother to Tricia Selis of Hawthorne, Julie Hurd and her husband David Hurd of Mahwah, Tia DeBon and her partner Dave Paparoski of Hillsdale. Adoring grandmother to Kiera Tanner, Krystal Querner, Lauren Polunin, Alex Lutz, Eric DeBon, and Bryan DeBon. Great-grandmother to Levi, Mackenzi, Wesley, Nathan, and Nola.
Marilyn was born in Hoboken to George Krieger and Mary Cronin. She met Ed Selis through her cousin at Greenwood Lake. They married and bought a home in Hawthorne before moving to Allendale, and they spent their summers in Lavallette. She made our house a home, loved to sew, was a talented and innovative cook, volunteered over the years at the Valley Hospital Auxiliary and was the occasional entrepreneur. She loved traveling, all word games (especially a good game of Scrabble!), singing, listening to music on Sunday afternoons, summers at the shore. And she especially loved time spent with her husband and family, her circle of friends and the friendship of her daughters.
A celebration of her life will be held privately given covid constraints.
