Marilyn was born on December 30, 1943 in Goodman, MS to the late Mr. Martin Levi Ables and Mrs. Virginia Burrell Ables. She grew up in Goodman where she graduated high school. She went on attend Holmes Community College. On June 25, 1967, she married the love of her life, Billy Castle at St. Luke Methodist Church in Cleveland, MS. Marilyn eventually moved on to Delta State University, where she received a master's degree. After brightening the young minds of many at Cleveland High School for thirty years, she made the decision to retire. Mrs. Marilyn came out of retirement to continue furthering the minds of the future for another six and a half years at St. Joseph Catholic School in Greenville, MS. She planted roots in Cleveland and loved tending to many plants with her husband, Billy. Most of all, Marilyn cherished every moment with her beloved family. Marilyn never met a stranger that she could not unite with in some way. She had a special ability to leave a smile on the face of anyone that she encountered.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Martin Levi and Virginia Burrell Ables; grandson, Addison David Sterling; and brother-in-laws, Charles E. Smith and Henry Lloyd.
