Marilyn Joyce Ernst, 84, passed away on September 8th, 2023, at her ex-daughter-in-laws home. She will be deeply missed by many.
Marilyn was born on August 10th, 1939 to Arthur Hamman and Mary Mavetz, in Milwaukee, WI. Marilyn married Barry W. Ernst on May 27th, 1961 at Saint Gregory The Great church in Milwaukee WI. They lived in Milwaukee and Waterford, WI for a number of years, then moved to Missouri, and finally retired in Florida. After her husband passed in August 2022, Marilyn returned to Waukesha, WI. After being diagnosed with cancer she moved to Waterford, WI to live out her remaining days with her ex-daughter-in-law and grandchildren who provided her loving care until her passing. We'd also like to give a special thank you to Brady, who has been there and given her extra care this whole year.
Survivors include her sons, Barry and Garry, grandchildren, Brandon, Bradley, Ashley, Brady, Kaitlyn, Christopher, Kurtis and Samuel (Haley). She is further survived by her great-grandchildren Wesley, Everly and Myla.
She is preceded in death by her parents, her brothers, Dennis and Kenny, and grandson Barry Jr.
At this time there are no services planned, but Marilyn will be laid to rest with her husband, Barry, at a future date at Sarasota National Cemetery (9810 State Rd 72, Sarasota, FL 34241).
