Putnam’s First ‘First Lady’ Remembered at Fundraiser
Marilyn Bruen, Putnam County’s first “First Lady”, was remembered last week for her love for life, boundless energy and determination to help others. The wife of former County Executive David Bruen was lauded at a gala in Pawling by her children and grandchildren on what would have been her 82nd birthday. Bruen passed away on Sept. 18, 2011.
