Marianne Williams Obituary

Marianne Joy Wiliams, 86, of Cassopolis, died peacefully, Wednesday March 13, 2024, in the comfort of her family’s presence.

Her life began November 14, 1937, in White Pigeon, Michigan, the second of three children born to Frank and Carolyn (Schiereck) Ogrin.

Marianne was the quintessential mother and her family was her priority. She was a woman of faith and a servant of the Lord. She loved her church and was very active. She retired from Heritage Southwest ISD where she served as custodian. She enjoyed helping students and was meticulous in her cleaning. This hard-working ethic continued in everything she did. She is known for her kindness, gentleness and her unconditional love. She was known by those she loved and loved her as “Nana”.

Marianne will be greatly missed by family and friends.  She is survived by two daughters, Sherese Williams of Cassopolis, Sharena (Michael) Hill of Mishawaka ; one son, Brian (Dr. Vernette Carlson) Williams of Stephenson; nine grandchildren, four great grandchildren; one brother David (Joan) Ogrin of Cassopolis  and a host of nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband of almost 61 years, Marvin Roy Williams and her sister, Laurel (Ogrin) Lyn.

The family is planning a celebration of life well lived, in June 2024.

The family prefers contributions in memory of Marianne be made to Diamond Cove Missionary Church, 22820 Diamond Cove Street, Cassopolis, Michigan 49031.
