Marilyn Paschke Zwier


Marilyn, 86, of Sun City, passed away July 24, 2022.  She was born in Chicago, Illinois to Otto Ernest and Evelyn (Uhle) Paschke.
Her life was spent caring for her family first and foremost. After retiring from her career in banking, she moved away from the Chicago snow to the warm sands of Sun City AZ. She became involved with the Bell Craft Clubs exploring different interests including crocheting scrubbies. 
As co-owner of “Our Unique Boutique”, a family business, she met and befriended her community. Being an active member of the United Church of Christ in both Mokena, IL and Sun City, AZ, she kept her faith alive in deeds and prayer. Having a full life of family and friends, she went home to the Lord in peace. 
Marilyn is survived by her children, Linda (Anthony) Miano of Phoenix, AZ and Lawrence (Brandy) Zwier, Elwood IL; her sister, Sharon Bywater; her grandson, Zachary; as well as her many nieces and nephews and her beloved cats.
