Marlys passed away peacefully on August 9, 2013 with her husband and daughters by her side. She was born on November 18, 1938 and was a lifelong Minnesotan. She and her husband Loren were married for 56 years. In 1967 they moved to Bursvillle where Marlys loved to tend the gardens at home – especially her flowers. She enjoyed playing cards, baking and most of all, her grandkids. She was a member of Prince of Peace Lutheran, where her Celebration of Life was held on August 13.
Marlys is survived by her husband, Loren Ehnert; daughters and spouses, Julie & Paul Wennberg, Lori & Rob Pietz; grandchildren, Erik, Matt & Elise Wennberg and Alec & Marley Pietz.
