Obituary of Marilyn Ann Parry

Marilyn Ann Parry (Breitung), the daughter of Ralph and Esther (Lyness) Breitung, was born on February 17, 1934 in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. She was raised and graduated High School in Fond du Lac and later moved to Minnesota where she received her education in Nursing. 


Marilyn was united in marriage to David Parry in Webster, South Dakota. They lived in Maple Lake, Minnesota where they enjoyed fishing, hunting and family gatherings on the lake. Marilyn remained an avid Green Bay Packer football fan, which was always a fun rival with our Minnesota Viking football family. They lived in Minnesota until retirement. Their retirement years were spent in Yankton, South Dakota.

Left to cherish Marilyn’s memory is her sister, Jean Moderow; daughters, Karen (Jim) Peterson and Robin Passer; her grandchildren, Michael (Shelley), Sean (Lacey), Dana (Thomas) and Eric; her great-grandchildren: Cooper, Mackenzie, Connor, Scarlett, Lenore and Evan and other relatives and friends.

Marilyn was preceded in death by her husband, David and her parents.
