wassmuth center for human rights Idaho


Marilyn Howard was, and continued to be, a guiding force in education. Upon her retirement from public office in 2007, Marilyn’s love for the Center and the import of its work became her passion. After three terms, nine years, on the Center’s Governing Board and Chair of the Education Committee, Marilyn was presently serving on the Advisory Board. Truly, she was a champion for kindness. Though her presence and smile will be sorely missed, Marilyn’s guidance leaves an important imprint on our organization.

As she once shared, “The Center does not speak for a membership; our programming and resources are designed to empower others to stand up and speak out.”

Rest in Peace, Marilyn, knowing that we carry your charge.

Donations may be made in Marilyn’s memory to the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, home of the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial.

Funds received will support the naming of the Center’s new library / conference room in her honor.
