Marilyn M. Preston

Marilyn M. Preston, age 81, of Britton, passed away on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2021.

She was born in Detroit on June 22, 1939. Her parents, Robert and Gladys Malloch, moved to Britton in 1944, where she met and married (1960) her late husband, Bill, and taught science and math in the Britton-Macon School District for over four decades. Even after her retirement from teaching full-time, she worked with elementary kids in a volunteer literacy program. She touched many generations of young people in Britton.

In addition to the countless human lives she touched, she was a supporter of the Toledo Zoo, and took mercy on countless stray animals over the course of her years.

A woman of deep faith, she volunteered at Grace United Methodist Church in Britton, composing the church bulletins and performing whatever other tasks she could to further the congregation’s mission.

Marilyn is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Robert and Gayle Malloch of Surprise, Ariz., a nephew, Michael Malloch, of Lansing, Mich., a niece, Cheryl (Thomas) Clafton of Northville, Michigan and grand-nieces, Haley Clafton, Dana Clafton, and Anya Malloch and grand-nephew, Ian Malloch.

In accordance with Marilyn’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial service in Marilyn’s honor will be held at a later date.

  • UAW workers at Kirchhoff Automotive walked off their jobs Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. to protest poor working conditions, along with health and safety issues. Negotiations for a new contract have failed. Several picketers complained Monday of a new work schedule that begins at 4 a.m. for four-day, 10-hour shifts. Picketers also complained about longer hours, insufficient pay and difficulty in finding day care for children at the new starting time. Calls to Kirchhoff for comment Tuesday were not returned.
