Marion R. Fannin passed away on September 7th, 2021 at her home in Chilton, surrounded by her loving family. 

Marion was born in Washington County, WI on April 21, 1929 to Joseph and Eleanor (Anhalt) Bolz. She married her first husband, Donald G. McMunn on May 20, 1950 at St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Kiel. They were married for five years when Don passed away. Several years later, she married Jerome J. Keuler on July 6, 1957 at St. Mary’s Church in Chilton. They were married for nineteen years when Jerome died. On June 25, 1988, Marion married Arthur L. Fannin at St. Mary’s Church in Chilton. They were married for thirty years when Art passed away. 

Marion worked for the Chilton Times Journal for over eighteen years when she retired in 1990. Marion and Art spent their retirement traveling to Las Vegas and played many games of bingo and video poker at Oneida Casino.  Marion was known for her crafting and gardening skills. She always had the most gorgeous flower beds and enjoyed feeding and watching the birds in her quaint backyard. Marion spent many hours in the kitchen and was especially known for her famous peanut squares. She was also a member of the American Legion Auxiliary since 1951.
