Marilyn Linda Flynn Burne of Branford, beloved wife of the late Philip Burne, passed peacefully on July 6 after a long battle with dementia. She was born in New Haven on Nov. 9, 1942, to John Flynn and Anna Kubicza Flynn who preceded her. Marilyn was the mother of Robert Stone of Hamden, Theresa Vailette (Jeffrey) of Branford, Dawn Floyd (Anthony) of Branford, and Kathleen Federico (Paul) of Hamden. She was the grandmother of Jeff Jr., Melissa, William, Kathryn, Andrew, Anthony, Kaili, and Cynthia. She also had eight great-grandchildren. Marilyn was also predeceased by her lovely sister Patricia Oboyski (Peter).
Marilyn started her career serving her community in 1975 as an emergency medical technician with Branford Ambulance Service as well as Nutile’s Ambulance. She also served as a matron, crossing guard, and a supernumerary police officer until 1987, when Marilyn was hired as Branford’s first full-time female police officer. She served the town in this capacity for 12 years. She later worked in the Emergency Department at Yale-New Haven Hospital.
Besides her careers, Marilyn served as vice president of planning on the Executive Board of the South-Central Regional Emergency Medical Service Council. She was also a member of the Domestic Violence Task Force and received an award for her hard work and dedication.
Among her fondest memories was her time spent with family on Block Island. Marilyn possessed a deep appreciation and love of animals, especially her dog Necie. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Her family would like to thank everyone at Whispering Pines Rehabilitation and Nursing Center for the extraordinary compassion and care shown to Marilyn during her illness.
