Marilyn's Life Tribute. Mother, Fighter, Rescuer.

        As of lately many people have reached out and expressed their love and sympathy in regards to our mother Marilyn, and her painful battle with breast cancer. Marilyn has always had hope, faith and trust in God that she would be healed. Marilyn unfortunately passed away and our family is beyond devastated to have lost such an amazing soul.  It has been a long treacherous battle for Marilyn and her family. Her misfortune has come to an abrupt heart wrenching end. Although God has decided that her time has come and will no longer need to suffer; we have realized how grateful we all are to have spent time with her in this last chapter of her life. Marilyn was loved and cherished by so many. Even with all of Marilyn’s daily challenges and battles with cancer, she remained optimistic and hopeful everyday in this world. She continued rescuing dogs and helping people with their animals despite her condition.
       Marilyn Williams was a beautiful, inspirational and admirable animal rescuer who has painfully fought and battled Breast Cancer for the past 6 years. Her loving family is not only dealing with the painstaking loss of their mother but has also incurred the outstanding costs that come with her upcoming memorial services and the possibility of continuing her non profit, Pups Rescue. She was a wonderful merciful mother of four. Who is the founder of Pups Rescue which started in Stockton, California in 2005 has been battling breast Cancer since 2014.  Marilyn’s passion and example has allowed her to rescue thousands of puppies, pregnant dogs, and many special needs animals for over 20 years. All of her time and hard earned money was devoted to running the rescue.  She was the voice for those who could not speak. Marilyn was truly an advocate for the rescue community. She loved educating  and sharing her knowledge on the well being of dogs and puppies to their owners. Her work on this earth is still not finished. There are still so many lives to be saved including her own dogs and animals, which some have special needs.
         To help relieve this difficult time full of stress, heartbreak and strain the family is enduring, we have started this page in order to help cover the funeral and other costs met with the rescue..please contribute anything you can at this time as it all helps and your generosity and support is beyond appreciated. 
         Sometimes we are left to uncover the wreckage at the mercy of a higher powers decision.  She will be forever missed and although she is no longer with us her soul will live on. Marilyn meant so much to everyone around her and even those she never met. She was feisty, full of passion, full of purpose and would always think of others before herself.  Marilyn is truly an angel and has officially received her wings. Lets come together for Marilyn and celebrate her beautiful soul. She will forever be in our hearts and as well in the hearts of our furry friends. Please enjoy the music video, she's so far away but still is with us everyday. This was one of her favorite songs and bands.  Let's keep her spirit ALIVE.   
So join us in giving Marilyn a moment of silence and a big thank you. 

Luke 1:37 “ For with God, nothing shall be impossible.” If we as people can put our trust in God, we can and will get through anything. While in this world and ride called life, we must take the good with the bad, take the positives from the negative, love what you have and always remember what you have had. Always forgive but never forget.
