Obituary for Marilyn Lenick

Lenick, Marilyn M.
born October 30, 1934, departed this life for the blessed hereafter at the age of 84 years on October 31, 2018.
Preceded in death by her beloved parents Mother Josephine & Father Louis, beloved brothers Donald and Louis, as well has her best friend and sister-in-law Betty Rose Lenick.

Survived by her nephews Jeffery Lenick, Martin (Evinnia) Lenick, and Louis Lenick, and nieces Debbie (John) Grund, Leslie Ruby (nee Lenick), & Larissa (Thomas) Sielicki, as well as great nephews, nieces and cousins, Walter, Martin and John.

Marilyn was a woman who loved her family, especially her nephews and nieces, and church with all her heart. Marilyn was dedicated to caring for others and spent her entire career doing just that as an OR nurse at Rush Presbyterian-St Luke's in Chicago, IL.

She loved to cook and was famous for her traditional Slovakian dishes, especially her family recipe for Sauerkraut soup and Paprikash with Halusky. Marilyn also spent a great deal of time in Turkey, during her time there she taught specialized nursing classes and it held many fond memories for her.

Marilyn will be greatly missed by those who loved her, especially her dear friend Mary, who cared for and was her constant friend, especially in her last months, as well as her by her sister-in-law Luann Lenick.

Rest in peace, may your memory be eternal.
