Marianne Rossel, age 74, of Maplewood, passed away March 21, 2020.
She loved her family with all of her heart and had a special bond with each and every person in her life. She fought courageous battles with any health issue thrown her way and always had a positive outlook. She was very proud (and bragged to anyone that would listen) of her kids (including her kids-in-law), grandkids (including their spouses) and great grandkids.
She recently celebrated her 35th year of sobriety, a huge accomplishment for anyone! She loved finding out about her heritage by digging through genealogy sites and public records. She was quite crafty and loved making flower arrangements, swags and wreaths to share. Loved anything to do with Ireland, Christmas, Elvis and gardening. She led a full life with many wonderful (and some not so wonderful) experiences and passed those lessons on to her loved ones.
She is preceded in death by her mother Gladys Stoeckmann, father George Nash, sister Joy Stoeckmann and niece Tamara LeTourneau. She is survived by children Lance (Patty) Koren, Laurie (Dan) Emmons, Lisa (Andrew) Kauffman, Rob (Crystal) Rossel, Jose (Teresa) Rossel; 13 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren; siblings Ron (Kathy) Nash, Pat (Charlie) Echevarria, Wallis Stoeckmann and Jon Stoeckmann; many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
No service will be held but a Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. If you wish to make a donation in Marianne's memory, it would have blessed her heart to have it directed to your favorite charity.
