Marilyn Jean Osborn, 81 of Cincinnati passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on March 12, 2023. 

Marilyn had a brilliant mind and was well educated. She earned her Bachelor's of Arts in French from Penn State and then went on to receive her Master's in French from the University of Michigan. She once again furthered education, by receiving her Juris Doctorate from the University of Cincinnati. 

After law school, she went to work at 5/3 bank and became Vice President and Chief Investment Officer. She was a trailblazer for women of her time and will be remembered for her leadership and investment acumen. She left 5/3 and formed her own company, Osborn and Kelley which eventually was bought out by Bartlett where she retired at the age of 70.

Marilyn was heavily involved within the community, serving on the Board of Directors on the Cincinnati Symphony, Cincinnati Ballet, Beechwood Home and was the past President of the Institute of Financial Analyst.
