Marilyn J. Tarras, 77, of Rushford, Minn., died on Sunday, January 3, 2016, at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Home in Rushford.
Marilyn was born on March 30, 1938, in La Crosse, Wis., to Joseph and Charlotte (Ford) Lambert.
She was raised in Winona and graduated from Winona Senior High School in 1956, and from Winona Cosmetology School. On November 29, 1963, she married Ronald Tarras in Winona. Marilyn worked as a beautician at Jefferson Beauty Shop and at her own home in Winona for many years. She enjoyed casino trips, shopping for clothing, dressing up and going out for dinner, spending time with her grandchildren, and in her younger years she enjoyed camping. If you understood her sense of humor, you would have found her to be very funny.
