Marilynn Frances Piotrowski passed away on Thursday, August 28, 2014, at the age of 74 years, beloved wife of Al Piotrowski (her perfect Polish Prince). She also leaves to cherish her memory her children, Vicki (Rob) Nikiel, Glenn Piotrowski, Garrett Piotrowski and Roxanne (Darren) Carnelli; six grandchildren, Tiana, Derrik (Nicole), Sloane, Brandy, Landon and Reece; two great grandchildren, Jordyn and Peyton; one brother, Fred (Elli) DeMaris, numerous brothers and sisters-in-law and her special family friend, Dezarae (Wayne) Koczka and their children, Max and Cassi.
She was predeceased by her parents, Mabel and Jack Giesinger; one son, Stanley in infancy and her brother, Wayne DeMaris. It’s extremely difficult to believe that our Mom was taken so quickly from us, only within a matter of 7 weeks from beginning of her illness to the end. It’s comforting to know that she’s now up in Heaven with Jesus. During Mom’s younger years, she grew up with a loving, gentle, soft-spoken Mother whom both Mom and her brother respected and adored. Mom had
told us numerous times that both her and Fred never fought one time while growing up; now who can say they’ve never fought with their sibling, not once?!
She took great pride and satisfaction working at the Police Station for 26 years as a Secretary. We often heard from Detectives she worked for and her co-workers that Mom had a heart of gold and she was irreplaceable. She loved her job and it showed. Mom’s love for people was evident and enormous! She showed compassion towards those who were ill by sewing blankets for them - every stitch was sewn with love. Her passion was to make the world a better place to live in by volunteering for organizations such as: Canadian Food
grains Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Mission and Outreach, Schizophrenia Society, Unisphere and her Church Board. Mom’s forte was using her gifts of expertise, proper grammar and spelling. It was nothing to come over to see her typing up “Letter of Recommendation”, Resumes, Minutes of Meetings for organizations she didn’t even belong to - offering her services . . . . for free. Reading, bowling (which in her younger years earned Top Triple Bowler) and golfing with Dad were a few of her hobbies. She loved to take trips to the mountains, Vegas, family trip to Hawaii and especially celebrating Mom and Dad’s 50th anniversary to Italy,
Greece, Turkey and Croatia. At least a week prior to every trip, she shared with us how she wasn’t able to sleep due to being so excited. Family meant everything to Mom, just spending time sitting around the kitchen table talking and sharing funny stories, this is what she enjoyed most. Mom was by far, one-of-a-kind who touched many, many lives. The world is a different place without you here Mom. We love you and will miss you so very much!
