Marilyn Jean Luster, age 65, transitioned from this earthly life to her heavenly home, surrounded by family, on July 18, 2021. Marilyn was born on June 20, 1956, in Flint, Michigan, to Rosetta Newton Luster and Veo Fred Luster Sr. Marilyn was devoted to her family. She loved children and cherished the time she spent with her many nieces and nephews. Marilyn’s favorite pastime was reading, and she enjoyed books on a variety of topics. 

Marilyn attended Flint Community Schools and graduated from Flint Central High School. She obtained a degree in respiratory therapy from Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Michigan; a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida; and a pharmacy degree from Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Florida. During her career, Marilyn worked as a respiratory therapist, pharmacist, and teacher.

To cherish her memory, Marilyn leaves her mother, Rosetta Luster; three sisters, Rose (Spencer) Turner, Joyce Harris, and Cheryl Smith-Wilson; two brothers, Veo F. Luster Jr. and Frederick E. Luster; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Marilyn was preceded in death by her father, Veo Fred Luster Sr.; sister, Lavern Crayton; brother, Kalso Bryant Luster; sisters-in-law, Gloria Burris-Luster and Karla Grant-Luster; and brothers-in-law, Eddie Crayton, Larry Banks-Harris, and George Wilson.

Marilyn, per her request, was cremated. A virtual memorial service will be held Saturday, July 31, 2021, at 1:00 p.m., and access information will be posted. The family requests that in place of flowers, donations be made in Marilyn’s name to the American Cancer Society.

Marilyn will definitely be missed! She was passionate in her beliefs and had a genuine love for her family. She moved to Arkansas and never missed anything we had going on unless she wasn't able. She walked in a room and it would instantly light up! Prayers to the family! RIL???? Reply to this comment

Marilyn my BFF, my maid of honor, my big Sis. Thank you for teaching me to always have confidence and even when I didn’t…dress and strut like I did. I will always cherish our time together, the times we laughed, celebrated, and cried together. Love you always, your Li Sis and as always I send my kisses and misses. Reply to this comment

Marilyn, as your younger cousin growing up, you were an inspiration to me. You were in college studying that "hard" stuff! And yes, you are "The Pretty One"! After I moved away, I enjoyed the times we were both in town and had a chance to talk. You were so witty, funny, passionate and caring. Love you always! Reply to this comment

Marilyn, I missed You at the last family reunion only to be told you moved to Arkansas. It was always a pleasure talking to you. I really appreciated, at the first official family reunions I attended, your diligence in researching our family tree and ancestry. We, Johnny and myself offer our condolences to the Luster family and May Marilyn live on in all our hearts. RIH Marilyn. Reply to this comment
