Marilyn got the Devil’s Ink in her blood after meeting Tim 25 years ago.
She worked for TU Electric prior to the purchase of the Salado Village Voice in March 1988.
She also owned and operated a plant business in the Killeen/Copperas Cove area for several years while raising her three children.
During their years in Salado, Marilyn has served the community in many ways. “I think I have been most satisfied with my work with the Salado Family Relief Fund,” she said. In addition to her work to establish the Family Relief Fund, Marilyn has also been Art Fair chairperson for two years, and worked with the Ladies Auxiliary to publicize its annual event, Christmas in October.
She has also won awards from the TCNA. She has twice been honored. She won second place for Best Feature Photo and second place for Community Service for her work with the Family Relief Fund.
The Fleischers’ grown children -- Royce Wiggin and Jenny Wiggin -- grew up in the eye of the community. “We have dragged them to so many events with us as they were growing up,” Marilyn said,"Now we look forward to doing the same with grandbabies!"
