The death of Marilyn Lee Richardson at 54 is a loss for the Beacon Hill neighborhood.
She was a resident here for many, many years and she loved living on Beacon Hill.
She particularly enjoyed the annual trick or treating activities at Halloween and always helped with neighborhood decorations at Christmas.
Her many friends here comprised her support system during her courageous battle against breast cancer.
Above all, Ms. Richardson was an animal lover, especially dogs. During her long illness, her dog Pippi Louise was a wonderful source of love and companionship for her.
Ms. Richardson was a wealth manager at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney for more than 20 years.
Her presence on Beacon Hill will be sorely missed by her many friends here.
