Marian E. Gregory


Marian Elizabeth (Bongiovanni) Gregory passed away peacefully at Valley VNA Senior Care in Neenah, WI on Thursday, January 26, 2023.

Marian was born January 29, 1928 in Wakefield, MI. Daughter of the late John and Marian (Savitski) Bongiovanni. She attended St. Sebastian School and A.D. Johnston High School in Bessemer, MI. Prior to her marriage she was employed at the Ironwood Clinic.

She married William J. “Bill” Gregory on May 16, 1959 in St. Sebastian Church, Bessemer. After their marriage they moved to Wausau and Marian was employed at Wausau Insurance Company for 21 years.  Bill preceded her in death on December 8, 2015.

She was also preceded in death by her parents, four brothers: William (Helen), Eugene (Barbara), Joseph (Hazel) and Alvin.

She is survived by her son Joseph (Virag) and daughter Pamela (Mark) Seidl, four grandchildren: Nicole (Greg) Cook, Tyler (Kelly) Gregory, Benjamin Seidl, and Laura Seidl; two great- grandchildren, Helaina and Lincoln Cook, and many nieces and nephews.  She is further survived by one brother, John (Darlene) Bongiovanni, and one sister, Joanne Paris.

The “lights of her life” were her children and grandchildren. She was an avid reader. Loved to crochet and cross stitch, work crossword puzzles and play cards with dear friends. After retirement, she enjoyed traveling. At the top of her list were trips to the Boston area to visit son Joe and family and many trips to her beloved Door County with daughter Pam and family.
