Obituary for Marian L. Marek
Marian Loretta Marek, a resident of United Pioneer Nursing Home, Luck, WI, passed away on Friday, November 2, 2007, after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She was 86 years old. She was born March 8, 1921, in Minneapolis, MN. Her parents were Leonard and Frances Olson. Her grandmother, Anna Rachner, raised her in Webster where she attended school and grew to womanhood. She was united in marriage to Fred J. Marek on March 30, 1940. They had 9 children together and mostly lived in Polk and Burnett Counties. Marian was a homemaker, but worked some summers at Stokley’s canning factory in Frederic. In 1971 they moved to Siren where she was a resident until the onset of Alzheimer’s disease in 1996. Marian was a homemaker and enjoyed many things including: fishing, bowling, cards and games, music, reading, gardening, bird watching, and spending time with family and friends. She was well known for her fresh baked bread, and many of her children’s friends called her Mom. She always had a cheerful smile, and most visitors were challenged for a “quick game of Scrabble” and a cup of coffee. Her parents; her son, Rodney; and her husband, Fred, preceded her in death. Survivors include 8 children, Jo Ann Marek of Pine City, MN, Marie Aguilar of Frederic, Paul and Michael Marek of Luck, Carol, Donald, Robert and Randolph Marek of Frederic; 24 grandchildren; 33 great grandchildren; 5 great great grandchildren; and other relatives. Funeral services were held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 6, 2007, at St. Dominics Catholic Church, Frederic, WI, with Father Dennis Mullen officiating. Cathy Tweet accompanied Stephanie Marek and Dr. Joseph Marek with the music. Casket bearers were Marian’s grandsons, Shane Marek, David Marek, Jim Marek, Jeffrey Marek, Timothy Marek and Rodney Marek. Interment was beside her husband at the Mud Hen Lake Cemetery in Daniels Township, Siren, WI. Rowe Funeral Home of Frederic, WI, was entrusted with arrangements.
