Marilyn Ann Werner
Marilyn Ann Werner passed away on August 25, 2017 lovingly embraced by her husband and four children after battling cancer for 3 ½ years.
Marilyn was born April 10, 1945 in Pasadena, California and was the first child of Max and Catherine McQuary. Her family lived in Southern California until Marilyn was 14 years old. In 1959, the family moved to Pocatello, Idaho where Marilyn graduated from Pocatello High School in 1963 and Idaho State University in 1967.
Marilyn met her husband Paul Werner in Boise, Idaho and they were married on July 12, 1969. Marilyn and Paul have lived in the Boise area for 50 years, most recently residing in Eagle. Her four children and nine grandchildren were the light of her life and all of them were blessed by her unconditional and supportive love.
Marilyn worked as a Special Education Assistant for 18 years in the Boise Schools. Her kindness, patience, and caring ways were felt by all the children, families, and teachers she had the privilege to help. Marilyn retired in 2004 and dedicated her love and time to her family. She was very creative and loved to sew and build miniature clothes and toys for her children and grandchildren. Marilyn loved being outside in nature enjoying her flowers, hummingbirds and butterflies. She also loved working on puzzles and playing board games, especially with her grandchildren.
Marilyn is survived by her husband Paul, her oldest son Scott (Meridian, ID), wife Michelle, their daughter Mia, her oldest daughter Traci (Meridian, ID), husband Jeff, their daughters Mikaili, Alexandra and Lily, her youngest son Steven (Highlands Ranch, CO), wife Laura, their children Matthew, Ava and Nathan, her youngest daughter Susan (Kenmore, WA), husband Jed, their daughters Jillian and Anna, and her younger brother John and family. She is so cherished by her family and will be greatly missed.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the St. Alphonsus doctors and staff at the Cancer Care Center and Heart Institute for the care they gave Marilyn.
A memorial graveside service will be held at 11:00 am, Friday, September 1, 2017 at Dry Creek Cemetery in Boise, followed by a reception at Reid Merrill Park in Eagle.
