Marilyn Muir Jager

October 17, 1963 - October 17, 2016


Our beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend passed away on her 53rd birthday, October 17, 2016. She fought a brief but fierce battle with cancer never imagining she wouldn’t win. Those who knew Marilyn described her as funny, intelligent, wise, positive, dependable, and loyal. She was a loving woman who exemplified the Savior in her acts of charity small and large. Her heart and home were always open.

As a professional, Marilyn practiced law for 27 years all at one firm, Morris, Polich and Purdy, in Los Angeles, California. Those who worked with her have remarked that she was one of the hardest working and dedicated lawyers they knew. She was an accomplished author and speaker. Marilyn successfully represented clients in state and federal courts across the country. Although Marilyn had numerous titles behind her name, Mother was her most prized.

She met the love of her life at age 26, and after a lengthy courtship these extreme opposites married for time and all eternity on August 8, 1996. Marilyn treasured Paul as a great husband, father and best friend. Together they created a beautiful family.

Marilyn is survived by: Husband Paul, children Cole 16, Claire 15, Lauren 12, her parents Stanley R Muir, Joan Stringham Muir, mother-in-law Fay Castleton Jager. Her sisters and brother, Paula (Robert) Brammer, Scott (Peggy) Muir, Kim (Todd) Brimley. Marilyn was a beloved aunt to numerous nieces and nephews.

Her family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and support staff at Mission Hospital for their incredible care. Also, thank you to the Hospice nurses of St. Joseph for the love they showed Marilyn in her final hours.

We are grateful to our Father in Heaven for the tender mercies he has shown the family as Marilyn passed back into his care. God bless ’til we meet again.

    We were indeed very fortunate to have known Marilyn and the Jager family through our AYSO days and on the fields at Cox and elsewhere. As I’m sure anyone can attest, there was never a more friendly or approachable person than Marilyn. She always had an uplifting and welcoming smile no matter what perceived disaster was occurring on the field that day. Our sincere condolences to the Jager Family.

    With a heart full of sorrow, I said good bye to my dear friend of 35 years at the celebration of her life on October 22d. I met Marilyn at Utah State where we became fast friends and sorority sisters. We shared our hopes, dreams and aspirations over these many years. We talked about college, law school, boyfriends, husbands, children and careers. I will miss her wit, wisdom, sarcasm and laughter, but most of all her unwavering friendship. Thank you to her wonderful husband, amazing kids, and her friends Paul and Brett, for honoring her with a memorial service that helped us smile through our tears with your stories and tributes.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Marilyn’s family and friends at this most difficult of times. May you find comfort in your memories of her and in the knowledge that others are missing her, too.

    In deepest sympathy,

    Deanna Tanner Okun
