Marilyn Mielke

Marilyn Mielke (Miller nee Holbrook) passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by loved ones on October 25th, 2022. 

 

Marilyn was born March 4, 1935, the daughter of Reece and Vera (Conn) Holbrook and grew up in White Lake, WI. 

 

As an independent young woman, she worked to put herself through teachers college when she met her first love, Clarence Miller. Together they gained success building Miller Tire in both Wisconsin and Florida. They shared 26 years of marriage and five children together. 

 

Later in life she met her second love, Robert Mielke, and they were married 33 years.  Bob had his own successful business Northern Air, selling supplies for drilling and mining. They shared a wonderful life together both in Wisconsin and many winters spent in Gulf Shores, AL with their beloved dog Blue. 

 

Marilyn lived her life with passion, a deep faith, humor and was known for her many hours of volunteering with various charities. She maintained lifelong friendships and was part of a large and loving extended family. 

 

She is survived by 5 children, Dan Miller (FL), Lori Lorge (Steve Garske), Debbie Miller, Julie Kaufmann (Al Kuhn) and JP Miller. She loved her very special daughter in law, Dee Miller (FL).  She had 8 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren, as well as their partners, spouses and 3 younger sisters. 

 

A visitation will take place at Brainard Funeral Home- Everest Chapel in Weston on Sunday, November 6th at 11:00 am.  A celebration of life for both Bob and Marilyn Mielke will follow at noon.
