Marjean had many different jobs in her life. But her longest job and favorite was working for Dr Roger Neumann as his receptionist. But the one thing in life she loved more than anything was being with her family. The first four grandkids will always have a very fond memory of her singing, “Row, row, row your boat” at bath time when they stayed the night. They also remember living so close to her that they would go visit her often and play basketball in the driveway and eating her cookies that she had made just for them.

Visitation will be one hour prior to the services at the funeral home. Burial will be at the Prairie Rest Cemetery, Delavan. Davis-Oswald Funeral Home in Delavan is handling the arrangements.
