Marilyn Hardy Werner

Marilyn Hardy Werner, of Chicago, and most recently Laramie, crossed over peacefully in her sleep Nov. 10, 2017. She was 90 years young.

She leaves behind her loving family — son Richard and his wife Sandi, daughter Sandra and her husband Jim, son William and his wife Marcia, daughter Lindy and her husband Tony, granddaughter Amanda and her husband Colin, granddaughter Britt and her husband Dave, grandson Colton, granddaughter Valerie and her husband Matt, grandson Thomas and great-grandchildren, Matt and Ava. Loving sister Arlene and childhood friends, Sister Marcella and Betty O’Rourke, cousin Kenneth and his wife Jerilynn also celebrate her life.

Marilyn was a proud and contributing member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America. She worked at the National Livestock and Meat Board Federation of America, UOP, American Farm Bureau, Boye Needle Company and Patterson Printing.

Marilyn was warm-hearted and mischievous, clever and well-read. She was an artist, and she loved clouds and all animals, especially cats. She collected music boxes and enjoyed working on our genealogy with her late brother Donald. She was the matriarch of our family and went happily to join our ancestors. She was kind to everybody and will be very, very missed. Bright blessings, Mom, Grandma, Nana and Great-Grandma.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of Laramie (
