Obituary for Marion Carlson

Carlson, Marion M.
(nee McGill) Of South Milwaukee, Passed away July 23, 2016 at the age of 88 years. Beloved wife of the late Duane "Zeke" Carlson for 51 years. Loving mother of Jan (David) Kerber, Trent (Cindy) Carlson, and Heidi (Wally) Wszelaki. Proud grandmother of Jason (Erin) Wait, the late Anthony Kerber (Ali Janusz), Louis Carlson, Frankie Carlson, the late Andrew Wszelaki (Tracy Larson), Nick Wszelaki (Kali Granlund), and Luke Wszelaki (Mary Seger). Great-grandmother of Charlie, Zeke, Anica, Tessa, Drew, and Brennan. Dear sister of Robert (Evann) McGill. Preceded in death by siblings; Carole, Joan and Norman. Further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Marion was born in Milwaukee, WI and Graduated from Mercy High School (a Catholic/All-Girls School). After high school she worked at Kyle /Line Material Company in South Milwaukee where she met her husband “Zeke”; They moved to South Milwaukee in 1952 after being married; Alongside her husband and his Business Partner the (late) Jim Andrew (Mary-Ellen) in 1965 they started the D.E. Carlson Company in South Milwaukee, 1024 Michigan Avenue, a Machining Company. The company still exists as Metal-Cut Products on Marquette Avenue. Marion was the Office Manager for many years until their retirement in December 1986. Marion and Zeke then moved into a Condominium at Tuckaway Country Club in Greenfield, before spending most of their retirement years sharing time between their home in Venice, FL and home in Redgranite, WI (Up North) where they enjoyed many years of happy memories. After her husband’s passing on July 8, 2003, Marion moved to Oak Creek, Wisconsin and spent 12 years at the Centennial Apartments / & Senior Living Community.
Marion enjoyed reading all her life and in recent years took up drawing (always a passion of hers) mostly sketching flowers, trees, hot-air balloons and as of late would make comical notations on some of her drawings (much to the amusement of her children and grandchildren). Marion loved and appreciated the outdoors. In earlier years when in Florida she golfed, walked and rode her bike but her favorite “sport” was Shopping. In Redgranite, she and her husband Zeke lived on a wooded lot and would cross country ski and snow mobile in the winter and in the summers enjoyed the beautiful scenery of their 2 acres of land. They traveled around the U.S. and Europe and entertained family and friends often. They both worked hard to keep their two residences an inviting place for ALL.
The last 2 years of her life she lived at Oak Creek Place / Assisted Living Community in South Milwaukee. Our family wishes to thank the Staff and Care Givers at Oak Creek Place for all their kindness, compassion and care. Their heartwarming stories of Marion, as seen through their eyes, were especially comforting to our family these last 2 weeks of her life. We thank them all from the bottom of our hearts. We also would like to also thank the Wheaton Franciscan Hospice Care that Marion received up until her passing.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer's Foundation in Marion's name would be appreciated.
