Marilyn Burke Trail, 94, of Beaumont, Texas, passed on Saturday, December 7, 2019. She was born on March 4, 1925 to Awtery and Eunice Burke.

Marilyn’s first love was her faith in God, her family and her passion for song.

During her working years, Marilyn served the Beaumont Independent School District, managing insurance coverage for everyone in the district.

Marilyn will be remembered for her service to her Church and Community and for her unwavering devotion to her family.

Survivors include her son, Robert C.. Trail and his wife, Rita Trail; daughter, Kathryn C. Tortorice and her husband, Tony Tortorice, Sr.; three grandchildren, Burke Trail and his wife, Denege Trail; Maria Baker and her husband, R.

Hello Kathy, I remember well your Mom bringing you to school at Assumption when we attended. I remember when your brother served in the military and the concern for him during his services. Your Mom's faith and beliefs made everything okay! Our parents are a generation that served to make this Country a great place to have family and faith under one roof. I wish you and your family the very best. Your Assumption School classmate and friend, Gerard Bonura

I will never forget your mother, Kathy. She was such a devout Catholic and never missed Sunday Mass. She read graceful in her appearance and gracious in her relationships. God bless you!
