Marilyn Lou (Norman) Wasemiller

August 17, 1938 – September 29, 2022

Marilyn Norman Wasemiller, 84, of Snohomish, Washington, died at her home on Thursday September 29, 2022, in Snohomish, Washington.

Born on August 17, 1938, in Canton, Oklahoma, she was the daughter of Ernest and Gertrude Norman. The family moved to Perry, Oklahoma, when she was six, just in time to start school. She was a 1956 graduate of Perry High School and a Perry Maroon Band member. She graduated Enid Business College in Enid, Oklahoma, in 1958.

She started her working career at Dial Finance in Oklahoma City. She spent most of her working days with Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, Michigan, and retired in 2000 after 35 years with the company. Her last job at Ford was as Personnel Services Supervisor in labor relations at the Rouge. She loved all the factory workers she cared and fought for the whole time she was there. After she retired, she moved to Washington state to be closer to her son.

She always enjoyed traveling with her son, puzzles and reading.

She is survived by her son, Mark Wasemiller, and wife Irena; her sisters, Rozetta Beasley of Matthews, North Carolina, and Carolyn Wilda of Richmond, Texas; and lots of nieces and nephews and their families.

She was preceded in death by her parents and sister Margaret Froebel.

Per her wishes there will be no formal funeral or memorial service.
