Newburyport — Marilyn (Thompson) Bradshaw, 75, of Newburyport, passed away at her residence. Born in New York, N.Y., on Jan. 12, 1938, she was the daughter of Michael and Winifred Thompson of Ireland. She is survived by her sons, Chas.

She also leaves behind two grandchildren, Crystal Hale of Epping, New Hampshire and Tess Bradshaw of Lyon, France and one great-grandson, Dustin Hale of Epping, New Hampshire.

Marilyn moved to Newburyport shortly after her marriage to the late Charles E. Bradshaw (Newburyport) in 1956. The two met in Central Park while Charles, United States Navy, was stationed in Brooklyn. She worked as a sales representative at Port Stationers in Newburyport for nearly twenty years. When in good health she enjoyed being involved with the Immaculate Conception Church in Newburyport and was an active member of the choir at one time. Her hobbies included reading and taking long walks. She also looked forward to listening and calling in requests to the Irish music show on Sunday mornings, on WNBP.

ARRANGEMENTS: A celebration of life will be held in the spring of 2014 when her entire family and friends can attend.
