Marlyn Berggren Duffy Died peacefully surrounded by her family on December 10th after battling a long illness with courage and grace. A resident of Foster City for over 40 years, Marlyn was born in Jamestown, NY, and moved to California to pursue a teaching career. Here she met her one love, Philip A. Duffy, and they were married on April 4th, 1959. They enjoyed long walks, long talks and family. She was proud of her 3 children who loved her very much. She encouraged and nurtured the strengths and talents of each of them. Marlyn was also the heart that tied the extended family together. She was a teacher, not only to school children, but to her children and to all those around her. She taught us how to love life, love each other, experience the world around us and pursue our goals with respect for others. Marlyn was proud of her Swedish heritage and traditions. She loved travel, good food, nature and books. She was a cheerful, thoughtful and diplomatic mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and citizen. Marlyn is survived by her 3 children, John, Philip and Elizabeth and 6 beloved grandchildren. The family will hold a private celebration of her life on Sunday. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST) at contribute.
