Marian was a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church and the Mercy Guild.

She enjoyed sewing and flower gardening. She was a Cubs fan and a Hawkeyes fan, but most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family.

Marian is survived by her children and their families, Barbara Wiese of Tiffin, Susan (Christopher) Wilhite of Albuquerque, N.M., Michael (Kelley) McLaughlin of Coralville, Kevin McLaughlin of Des Moines and Julie (Brian) Jensen of Iowa City; nine grandchildren: Noelle, Matthew, Ryan, Haley, Holly (Alex), Ashton, Luke, Keaton and Zack; two great-grandchildren, Victoria and Charlie; sister-in-law, Carol Meade Potter; and several nieces and nephews.

Marian was preceded in death by her husband, Ted; her parents; sister, Margaret “Betty” Milder; brother, Eugene “Gene” Meade; brother-in-law, Leslie Milder; and sister-in-law, Miriam “Mimi” McLaughlin.

We would like to thank the staff of West Ridge Care Center in Cedar Rapids for the love and devotion that they showed Marian and her family. Marian considered them her second family.
