On May 2 2015, Dr. Marilyn Sapp Benton’s spirit and soul transitioned home.
Marilyn was born December 16, 1935 in Joplin, Missouri to Mary Elizabeth and John Henry Sapp. She was the oldest of three children. Marilyn graduated from OU, married, and raised 3 daughters. In 1985 she earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from UMKC and practiced for over 20 years as a teacher and psychologist. Marilyn loved travel, animals, and giving back. Her work helping people heal and grow gives us great pride. Our mother is kind, wise, strong, honest, generous, humble, and spiritual.
Marilyn is survived by her 3 daughters, Diane Moore (Paul), Susannah Brown (Jeff), Camille Benton (Kevin Ferrett), 7 grandchildren…Skylar, Alex, Lauren, Kyle, Caine, Reese and Eli. Welcoming Marilyn home was Mary, Moody, John, Carol, Martha, Elizabeth, Jim, Henry, and others who love her. We will miss her every day.
