TRAVERSE CITY — Marilyn Catherine Kolonick, 81, died July 13, 2013, at 11 a.m. She had battled multiple myeloma for three years.
She passed peacefully where she resided at Bay Ridge Assisted Living in Traverse City, having moved there following the death of her husband, Joseph Kolonick.
She loved to stay busy, socialize and make her pressed flower cards. She was known for her wonderful meals and fun gatherings at her previous home overlooking Torch Lake. She had a history of volunteering, gardening, reading, daily crossword puzzles, anything musical and being with friends and family.
We will all miss her happy smile and positive outlook on life.
Marilyn is survived by her three children, Julie Krousouloudis, Edward Kolonick and Susan Paulson; three grandchildren; one great-grandchild; and four sisters.
A small memorial will be held Aug. 25 at 10 a.m. at 11104 S. Lake Road, Alden, MI 49612.
