Marilyn Pratt Bucko

December 1, 1947 ~ July 14, 2020 (age 72)

Obituary

After a courageous 15-year battle with ovarian cancer—and truly beating the odds—Marilyn passed on from this life to be with her Lord. She died in her Medford, NJ home on Tuesday, July 14 at the age of 72.

Born December 1, 1947 to Dana and Eunice Pratt, she grew up in Haddonfield and in 1966 graduated from Haddonfield High School where she led the marching band as the head majorette.

In 1970, she earned a degree in elementary education from Beaver College (now Arcadia University) and went on to teach 4th grade in Barrington, NJ for ten years. She then shifted to a career in technology sales, working with Scantron selling computer peripherals and optical scanners for two years.

She married Richard on June 26, 1982 and raised Scott and Clark (d. 1999) in Medford Lakes before moving to Medford in 1994 to make a home in the neighborhood of Deer Brook.

Marilyn had been a long time member of Covenant Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Cherry Hill, an active volunteer and supporter of pro-life causes, a member of the P.E.O Sisterhood, a good neighbor and patriot, and a caring friend to many. She will forever be known for being the consummate hostess who loved her family dearly.

Marilyn is survived by Richard L. Bucko, her husband of 38 years; son Scott (Shannon) Bucko and five grandchildren Mary Katherine, Jacob, Maggie, Esther, and Susie; brother Larry (Priscilla) Pratt and nephews Erich (Stacey) Pratt and Mark (Jennifer) Pratt and nieces Anamarie (Tim) Pattison and Elizabeth Pratt.

Relatives and Friends are invited to greet her family on Tuesday, July 21 from 6:00 – 7:00 PM at BRADLEY & STOW FUNERAL HOME, 127 Medford-Mt. Holly Rd., Medford, NJ.  A Memorial Service will be held Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM.  A private burial is planned at Park View Cemetery at Kirby’s Mill in Medford.
