Obituary for Carmen Geraldine Marek

Carmen Geraldine Marek, 95, of the village of Frederic, Wisconsin, passed away on May 1, 2017.

Carmen was born September 27, 1921 in Lake Mills, Iowa, the daughter of Hjalmer and Gena Carlson. Her family moved to Lewis, Wisconsin when she was a toddler. At the age of thirteen she was confirmed at the Methodist Church in Lewis.

She graduated from Frederic High School in 1939. She married George Marek and they moved to a farm near Wood Lake. There they raised four children, Judy, Myron, Gary and Pam. After the children moved out they bought the West Sweden Restaurant and bar that they ran for many years. For the last 50 plus years Carmen has lived in Frederic, Wisconsin.

Carmen loved to sew and embroider. She loved to bake pies and was often found playing cards and Bingo. Carmen loved to dance to polka music. She was a caring woman who made everyone smile.

She was preceded in death by daughter, Pam Goldsworthy; son, Myron Marek; and husband, George Marek.

Carmen is survived by daughter, Judy (John) Hoversten; son, Gary (Judy) Marek; son-in-law, Barry Goldsworthy; grandchildren, Tony, Cheryl, Kara, Travis, Sonya, Jed and Jason; and many great-grandchildren and dear friends.
