Entering her heavenly home, A. Marian Boller, age 94, of Wausau, passed away peacefully on July 13th, 2021, at Colonial Manor Health and Rehabilitation Center, Wausau, with her family by her side.
She was born on September 4, 1926, in Neillsville, WI, daughter of the late Henry and Martha (Dux) Wasserburger. Upon graduating from Neillsville High School, she moved to Wausau to attend Wausau Business College. On November 22, 1950, she married the love of her life, William Boller at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Neillsville and they celebrated 62 years of marriage.
Marian worked at the First American National Bank of Wausau, (formerly M&I and now BMO), for 38 years. As an executive secretary, she was honored to participate in a business trip to China.
Marian and Bill both retired in 1994 and began spending winters in Florida and summers at Indian Shore Campground. For the rest of the year, they spent their time traveling together, which they both greatly enjoyed. Marian was an avid baseball and football fan and attended many Brewers and Packer games with season tickets.
Marian was a member of the Wausau Business and Professional Women’s Club, National Secretaries Association(International Women’s Chapter), the United Fund Admissions and Distribution Committee and the Secretarial Science Advisory Committee. She was also a member of the VFW Women’s Auxiliary and Wausau Elks Club.
Marian had a very strong work ethic. During her retirement, she loved volunteering at St. Mark and St. Anne schools in the library and helping children with phonics, math and reading. She loved music and still played the piano until late May of this year. Marian always enjoyed roller skating, horseback riding, playing sheepshead, gardening, traveling, reading, history, and worked for many years on her family’s genealogy – which led mom and dad on many trips across the United States to locate relatives.
Survivors include her two daughters, Barbara (Donald) Henzlik of North Aurora, IL, and Kathryn (Milton) De Lonay of Wausau; grandchildren, Jennifer (Jason) Durnas of Naperville, IL, William Henzlik of North Aurora IL, Martha Jean (Joseph) Ross, and Marshall De Lonay, all of Wausau; great-grandchildren, Evan and Lucy Durnas, Londyn, Heuston, and Calais Ross; and several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and sisters, Leona Langreck and Bernita Wagner, a nephew and a great-nephew.
Memorial Mass will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Saturday, July 31st, 2021 at Church of The Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ, 621 N. 2nd St. Wausau. Msgr. Mark Pierce will officiate.
