Marrion J. Neuman

Marrion J. Neuman, 87, a lifelong resident of Gillett, passed away early Sunday morning, Nov. 17, 2019, at The Bay at Suring.

She was born on April 11, 1932, in Oconto Falls, daughter of the late Edward and Lydia (Paholke) Neuman. She graduated from Gillett High School with the Class of 1950.

Marrion was a resident of Gillett her entire life. She had many interesting occupations, with one being custodian of Gillett Bank. Marrion was a fixture of the community and well known for her profound wit and sense of humor. She was also a beloved aunt and cousin to many.

Marrion enjoyed celebrating the holidays especially Christmas, traveling to visit her niece and family in Mankato, Minnesota. After many years of dog sitting for many, she adopted her doggy best friend, Murphy, from a local animal shelter. She loved crafting, gardening and enjoyed all her own home maintenance. She survived three bouts with cancer and always referred to herself as a tough old German.

Marrion is survived by one niece, Cindy (Dennis) Loken; two nephews, Blake Wesner and special friend, Donna Conant, Dan Isaacson; and special cousin and caretaker, Betty Porath. Many great-nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends also survive.

Marrion was also preceded in death by two sisters, Beatrice Wesner and Lorraine Isaacson, and two nieces, Becky Boivin and Lisa Rickard.

The family greeted relatives and friends from 9-11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 22, 2019, at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 101 W. Main St., Gillett, where funeral services were held at 11 a.m. Officiating at the service was Pastor Bill Kamke with burial to follow at Wanderers Rest.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Marrion’s caretakers, Betty Spragghins and Denise Langlay. Also to her cousin Carrie Porath and her godson, Brad Porath, for their care and concern shown toward Marrion and her family.
