Our sweet, kind, caring, beautiful and loving mom left us on 5/26/2022, 3 days after her 85th birthday. Marione Weeks (nee Laclaw) was born on 5/23/37 in Wauwatosa, WI. She joined her parents, Peter and Elsie (Asunto) Laclaw and sister Janice.
She married Joseph Weeks on June 24, 1957. They welcomed their first son Robert in 1959 and in 1960, a second son James. For the finishing touch, they welcomed their baby girl, Mary Jo in 1968.
They raised their children in Okauchee, WI on the lake and after a brief move to Oconomowoc, they set their sights on retirement and to be free from Wisconsin winters. They moved with their eldest son and his family to the state of Washington. They lived on 5 acres together in Roy. Our mom never met a stranger so she soon met many new friends in her neighborhood and in the local stores while she was out ‘bumming” around. Everywhere she went, she touched someone's life.
One of her greatest pleasures was being able to be an active and involved great-grandma. She was there to babysit, attend their many sporting events, school events, birthday parties and holidays. They all loved their “granny” and would come running to her with open arms the minute they saw her.
After her husband's passing on June 21st in 2012, she stayed in WA until she decided to move back to WI in 2020 to be closer to her children and her sister. She lived with Mary Jo until her passing.
She is survived by her children, James (Darleen) and Mary Jo (Nate); her grandchildren, Nicole (Brian) Minihan, Peter Weeks and Alex Burgy; her great-grandchildren, Ally, Noah, Ethan, Lily, Logan, Liam and Addy; as well as her sister, Janice; nieces and nephews; and many, many friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; son, Robert; grandchild, Andrew; granddaughter-in-law, Sandi; and brother-in-law, Donald York.
We would like to thank the staff of Agrace, especially Hannah and Jodie. Her medical care team Dr. Lukas Kuehn and Dr. Shannon O’mahar.
A celebration of this wonderful lady will take place on Wednesday, June 8th, from 5-7pm at Winn-Cress Funeral Home in Waunakee. The family will receive visitors from 5-6:30 followed by a service.
