Marilee C. Szymoniak, 74, of Eau Claire, passed away on Tuesday, June 12, 2018, at home.
Marilee was born on May 30, 1944, in Stanley, Wisconsin to Vernon and Helena (Faschingbauer) Hanson.
She attended Stanley High School and graduated with the Class of 1962. She furthered her education as a dental assistant in Milwaukee and then moved to Chicago. On November 30, 1963, Marilee married Kenneth Szymoniak at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Stanley. Together they moved back to Eau Claire where she worked as a dental assistant for Hillside Dental and Dr. Woehrmann, and later worked at Hutchinson Technology before retiring in 2010.
Marilee enjoyed going to the Senior Center and exercising with the Dot’s and “going down the road”. She loved to organize a party and spend time with her friends and family, especially with her grandson, Wyatt. Marilee had a love for the holidays and had a smile and laugh that brightened any room she was in.
Marilee is survived by her husband of 54 years, Kenneth; daughter, Kendra (Westley) Manske; grandson, Wyatt; five brothers, Thomas (Gloria), Gerald, Kenneth, Roger and Eugene (Nancy); sister-in-law, Sue Hanson; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
