Mrs. Marian Lillian Hansen (nee: Herrick)

February 18, 1929 — December 7, 2017

Hansen, Marian Lillian (nee: Herrick), age 88, of Waterford, passed away peacefully at Cedar Community in West Bend, Wisconsin on December 07, 2017. Marian was born to Edward & Rose (nee: Pitrowiak) Herrick on February 18, 1929. Marian grew up and went to grade and high school on the south side of Milwaukee after which she went to Marvel Beauty School then started her long wonderful career as a beautician. Marian worked for many saloons, Schusters on Mitchell St, Milwaukee, Spurgeons and Hairworks in Burlington to name a few and if you couldn’t make it to her she would make a house call for you.
Marian met the man of her dreams and best friend in Lee Donald Martin Hansen and were married March 05, 1966 in Milwaukee. Marian and Lee started a three-family tradition of going to Scharenberg’s White Lake Resort in Montello the third week of August and this is still being carried out today. They also loved to travel to the Keys, FL all their married life in the winter. They lived in Milwaukee until 1970 before moving to their small cottage in Waterford that needed to be remodeled several times to accommodate their large group of friends and family. She loved cooking, baking, flower gardening, and entertaining friends and family. Marion and Lee made Christmas a big yearly celebration for the grandchildren. Marian also learned how to crochet and would make an afghan for many newborns of family and friends she knew throughout her life. Lee and Marian loved to have fun in their home and if you knew them you know what the lit green traffic signal on the pier meant and the party pontoon boat, Shanghai. Marian retired at the young age of 75, the one thing that will stand out in many of her friends’ minds will be her smile, people would say that her smile would light up a room, so every time you walk into a room please remember her.
Marian is survived by stepdaughter; Susan Hoefert: two brothers; Norbert and Eugene: six grandchildren; Darwin (Kelly) Horfert Jr. Dawn (Robert) Johnson, Laura Luebke, Dylan Hoefert, Candace Hoefert, Suzanne Cristerna and ten great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Preceded in death by her parents, loving husband Lee, her son; Roger Skrentny and son-in-law Darwin Hoefert, Sr: two sisters’ in law; Betty and Dorothy.
