Issue Date: December 13, 2018
Marilyn Jean (Miller) Lieburn, 92, passed away Dec. 5, 2018 at the Jack and Engrid Meng residence of Unity Hospice in DePere.
Born Sept. 25, 1926, the only child, to John and Helen Miller, she graduated from Marinette High School in 1944 and worked at the Pentagon in Washington DC as a Steno. She still remembered the names of all the Generals she worked for. After World War II ended she returned home to Marinette where she lived the rest of her life.
She married Ken Lieburn on Aug. 2, 1947 at the home of her parents. She worked at Ansul, JC Penney, the Bell Store for many years and also sold Avon, along with raising her four children.
She enjoyed family get togethers and summers at the cabin with her children and grandchildren. She loved to laugh and had a contagious laugh and good sense of humor. An avid Packer fan, she loved people with dimples, especially Aaron Rodgers. She loved to sing and "harmonize," shopping, Friday fish fries and Colonel Sanders chicken legs. She and her husband spent many happy years as "snowbirds" in Tucson, Az.
A longtime member of First United Methodist Church, she had a strong faith and enjoyed lunches and get togethers with the "Church ladies" and also made pasties with them for many years.
She is survived by four children, Steve (Joan) Escanaba, Lynn (Kent) Peterson, Marinette, Cindy (Karl) Dovnik, Green Bay and Scott (Patty), Kiel; nine grand children; seven great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Ward Kenneth Lieburn on Jan. 9, 1992 and by many brothers and sisters-in-law.
Friends may call at Hansen Onion Martell Funeral Home on Saturday, Dec. 15 from 11 a.m. until time of the funeral service at 1 p.m., with Rev Lewis Hague officiating.
