Marilyn Jean Sobieck

April 20, 1943 ~ August 31, 2020 (age 77)


Marilyn Jean Sobieck, 77, of Arcadia, passed away on Monday, August 31, 2020, at her home under the care of Gundersen Lutheran Hospice.

Marilyn was born in Arcadia on April 20, 1943, to Norman and Beatrice (Wivelstad) Dascher. She was raised on Montana Ridge and attended Arcadia Schools. After graduating from high school, Marilyn was united in marriage to Robert Sobieck on February 23, 1963, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Arcadia. After a few years of marriage, the couple decided to purchase a farm in River Valley, where they would establish roots and raise their children. Marilyn was employed with Ashley Furniture, Industries, and enjoyed the quiet, country life after a long day's work. She truly enjoyed the beauty of nature surrounding her home, spending time watching birds and the changing of seasons by her front window. Marilyn loved to go for car rides, with her in the driver's seat as long as her health would allow. She also enjoyed phone calls and visits from her family and friends. Though she may have most recently became a member of Holy Family Parish, her faith in God and family have been strong her whole life through.

Marilyn is survived by her husband of 57 years: Robert; daughter: Christy (Don) Moats of Whitehall; son: Michael (Melissa Thompson) Sobieck of Arcadia; grandchildren: Olivia, Jada and Jordyn Moats, Alexia and Jose Quiroz; sister: Colleen (Linus) Kujak of Onalaska; brothers: Robert Dascher and John (Sherry Severson) Dascher both of Strum; sisters-in-law: Elizabeth "Betty" Dascher, Ruth Wegman, and Marie Conrad; brothers-in-law: Ron Paetzel and Duane Sobieck; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; son, Andrew; grandson: Devon Quiroz; sister: LaVon Paetzel; brother: Dallas Dascher; sister-in-law: Mary Dascher; and brother-in-law: Eldon Conrad.
