Marion Faulkner

February 13, 2020

Marion (Korman) Faulkner, 91, passed on in the early morning hours of February 13, 2020. She was born May 17, 1928, in Sheboygan, WI to Arno E. and Nelda E. (Kroos) Korman. She graduated from Sheboygan Central High School in 1946.

Marion worked for The Wisconsin Bell Telephone Company in Sheboygan as a cord board operator, and while on loan to the Janesville office she met August “Gus” C. Faulkner. They were married on May 20, 1950, in Sheboygan, WI.

Marion is survived by her two sons, Steven of Eau Claire, WI, and James of White Bear Lake, MN;  a daughter, Linda (Terry) Wright of River Falls, WI; three grandsons, Matthew Faulkner, Andrew (Julie) Faulkner, and Kyle (Monica) Wright; two granddaughters, Jaclyn (Jon) Chaffee, and Katie (Derek) Borchardt; and ten great- grandchildren.

Marion was preceded in death by her husband, Gus, in 2006; her daughter in-law, Judy Faulkner; her parents; her sister, Margaret Korman; and brother, Henry Korman.

Marion was a member of Lake Street United Methodist Church where she was very active with her circle.  Marion loved to cook and bake, sharing her wares with her friends. In her home no one went away hungry. She loved crossword puzzles and she was always up for a trip to a casino or a game of cards.

The family wishes to thank and recognize the outstanding care provided our Mom by Heritage Assisted Living, Heritage Court, and St. Croix Hospice.

  • Kathryn Tyson Steve, Linda and Jim:

    We are so saddened at the loss of Aunt Marion. Most of all, we are sorry for your loss of your mother. That is a difficult thing to bear at any age. You put a lot into helping her over the past ten years, like finally convincing her that she didn't need to hike downstairs to do laundry.

    She was an important part of our history as the last of her generation of Faulkners. When we were young, she was our wonderful aunt that let us come and stay with you, our cousins, or celebrate whatever was happening.

    She is an important part of the holidays for me because I always make 6 to 8 loaves of cranberry bread according to Aunt Marion's recipe.

    She, and your Dad and our Dad made us more of a family. We'll have to keep these pieces together.

  • Katie Kroll from Lake Street UMC Marion, you were a Peach! I learned so much from you about a positive outlook on life: “That’s the way the mop flops.” I’ll always remember your cheerfulness and your bright red smile. God blessed us with your time on earth.
