Marilyn Joan Baltz

August 6, 1944 — March 6, 2023


Marilyn Joan Baltz, 78, of Charlo passed away Monday, March 6, 2023, with her loving husband by her side.

Marilyn was born August 6, 1944, in Twin Falls, Idaho to Charlie and Dorothy Dennis. Her family history was very important to her. Ancestry lines link her to England, Wales, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, Denmark, Eastern Europe, and Russia.

She graduated from Ronan High school in 1962. She attended business school in Billings and once remarked how she got by on $5 a week. On December 7, 1968, she married Arlo Baltz in Ronan. They had been married 54 years. They loved spending time in nature, camping with Arlo out in the fishing boat while she listened to the radio and browsing her magazines. They would go hunting together and loved staying at the hunter’s cabin or in their camper.

Marilyn loved animals. She often named the animals like bears and deer that moved through the property. She loved those who did not have a voice.

Memories of her include her collection of bells, she would collect driftwood for display in her flower gardens and her love of forget me not flowers. She would walk down the road to visit her mother/parents/relatives and would be pulled along by her kids, just in case we heard wild animal sounds nearby.

Her sister Norma and brother Arlan preceded her in death. Survivors include her husband Arlo of Charlo; three children, Barry Baltz, of Porter Texas; Karen Baltz Gibbs, of Newberg Oregon; Brenda Baltz, of Athens New York; her brother Jerry Dennis of Wichita Kansas, and four grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that Marilyn’s wishes of donations be made to Mission Valley Animal Shelter in Polson.

Memorial services will be later for safer travel when the weather permits.
