Marylen has been my friend and role model for 50 years. I have seen her tireless energy and creativity change the lives of the elderly throughout the country. Marylen lives the life she has built for us all. She is a woman of such thoughtfulness and generosity and lives life to the fullest. I am forever grateful for all that she has contributed to so many communities…and to my life. Happy Birthday to OASIS and to Marylen
Happy Birthday, Marylen. I remember your community involvement back when Oasis began and I worked at JCA. Wonderful growth….your hard work has produced awesome results!
I have been an OASIS volunteer in connections for 20 years as an instructor and now as a zoom assistant. It’s been a very rewarding experience. Thanks for all your guidance throughout the years. Happy birthday.
Happy Birthday Marylen 🎂
I have known Marylen since I was in grammar school. She was one of my favorites. I will never forget the day you took Gail Fudemberg and I to the Art Museum. You are a huge role model for all women. You have done so much good! Love to you and enjoy this very special birthday. ❤️
Hope you have the happiest of birthdays!
Happy Birthday and I hope you enjoy your birthday! We are new to OASIS and enjoying it.
You remain an amazing person as you continue to bring so much light into so many lives as their own suns are setting. Happy Birthday from someone older, but not wiser.
I’ve certainly enjoyed a LOT of OASIS classes. Happy birthday, and thank you for your input (s).
Marlyn – happy birthday – it is amazing the impact that you have had over the years. Glad to have played a small part in some of the research components.
I remember visiting a tiny corner of Famous Barr Crestwood “many” years ago to learn just what Oasis was. I am now a retired LCSW but I started out working for CORP and was invested in finding all resources I could locate to support Senior adults. It is hard to remember when you were not forging ahead with Oasis, expanding all of the time.
Thank you for all you have done. I never expected to one of those Seniors myself!
Best wishes for a wonderfull year ahead,
Happy Birthday Marylen. It’s been a great honor to have been a part of this wonderful organization since 1990 till my retirement in 2010. So many blessings have transpired because of Marylen’s foresight, daring, courage, initiative, drive, passion, and hard work in providing service to seniors. Thank you!
Such an inspiration and talent! It was an honor to know and be guided by Marylen so many years ago when OASIS was in its second decade of great growth across the nation. Kind, energetic, and so creative is she! My work with OASIS 30 years ago impacted me in many wonderful ways, showering me in personal growth. Today, as a senior myself, I am in awe of all the ways OASIS has touched thousands upon thousands of lives, and I continue to grow because of the vision Marylen brought forth into action and reality. Thank you, Marylen. You know… Read more »
Happy Birthday, Marylen. Thank you for all you have done for the community. I have enjoyed OASIS for many years. I hope to see you at Opera Theater this spring.
Happy Birthday sweet lady . Years ago I enjoyed water aerobics with your mom ❤️
Met you at an Oasis Class at CC about Jung and art . Been member since moving here in 2000. Birthday blessings and sending a big hug 🤗❤️
So honored to have worked with Marylen in the early days of OASIS. It was the best program May Company ever sponsored. And I am even more honored now to call her my friend. Such a warm, compassionate, caring, visionary human. She truly has made a difference in so many lives. Happy birthday, MM!
Happy Birthday Marylen
Happy 85th birthday to an awesome and inspiring “young lady” who has touched the hearts and minds of so many of us!
Dear Dear Marylen, I want you to know how much you inspired me early in my career. Your advocacy for older adults became a model for me as I moved into a health care career. I took that lesson and advocated for not only the elderly (starting a geriatric specialty designation for a variety of medical specialities, initiating a pet therapy program, and building an inpatient hospice unit at TMC) but then ultimately advocating for all of those who lack care. Of course I did not do this on my own, but I learned about building coalitions from you. You… Read more »
Thank God you were born 85 years ago, Ms. Marylen Mann! Because you are in the world, I was able to attend many wonderful classes at Oasis and learn a lot of new things including being entertained to boot! Many healthy and happy more years to you– at least until 120! Best wishes on your milestone birthday, Alice J. Brown
I thoroughly enjoy Oasis and their classes. I have been tutoring for approx. 13 years at a grade school near me. The classes Oasis offers are excellent. Keep up the good work. Appreciate all you have done.
Marylen, you know you are my hero and my role model. God has blessed us with you. You inspire me and so many others to make a difference in the lives we touch! God bless you and here’s hoping
We get to celebrate you when we get back to St Louis!!! Sending you hugs and lots of Love!
Best wishes for a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY Marylen. What a wonderful contribution you have made by helping to improve the lives of so many people. Thank you for all you have done.
Happy Birthday Marylen! Thank you so much for you vision and hard work. I can’t imagine my life without Oasis! I made lots of friendships through Oasis. Happy Birthday
It has been a joy and an honor knowing and working with you and sharing the quest to take on the “tough issues” of our times. Thanks for all you did and continue to do.
Marylen fondly known as MM to those of us who worked with her at the inception of OASIS is a true woman of vision. I watched her develop the idea of giving older adults educational opportunities through travel, teaching youth, and being a part of continued healthy living. You gave me the opportunity to be the first Volunteer Director which changed my life. Have a wonderfully blessed birthday!
Happy Birthday, Marylen and Oasis! I’m so thankful I have been able to participate in some of Oasis’ classes during the last 5 years. They have been so helpful for me since I’ve not only taken mentally-stimulating
and entertaining classes, I have bicycled, done zumba & other exercise classes, line-dancing classes, and attended seminars. In addition I play in the Oasis Concert Band. Best of all, I have re-connected with you, my fourth-grade teacher, after 60 years. Thank you, thank you, thank for your insight and inspiration to so many as the founder of Oasis.
