Marion was born January 26, 1935, in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, daughter of the late Emil and Luella (Buhrow) Winter. She married Roger Anderson on June 2, 1956. He survives. Marion was very proud to have earned her G.E.D.; she received it in 1979, the same year her daughter graduated from high school. Marion had worked at the former Fox Point, Merrill, and Weinbrenner Shoe Company, Merrill. Marion was also a stay-at-home Grandma and was very involved in her grandchildren’s lives. They both fondly remember playing baseball in the front yard with Grandma and how Grandma was always there for everything. Marion enjoyed camping and traveling out west. She also liked coloring and Black Friday shopping with the girls. Marion was a member of Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, Merrill.
