Marie M. Brzowsky, 92, passed away Monday, March 11, 2019 at the Spring Brook Assisted Living Center. She was born January 30, 1927 in La Crosse and adopted by Thomas and Sophie (Brevik) Giblin.
On November 6, 1948 Marie was united in marriage to Thomas J. Brzowsky at St. James Church in La Crosse, WI. Her prayers have finally been answered as she joins her husband who preceded her in death on Nov. 23, 1989.
Marie was a graduate of the class of 1945 from Aquinas High School.
She was a loving, generous, thoughtful, and dedicated mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who will be dearly missed by all.
She is survived by her children, Sandra (James) Noelke, Patricia (Thomas) Mackey, Nancy (Jerry) Kjos, Thomas (Betsy) Brzowsky and Jean (Lee) Elliott, grandchildren, Lisa Anderegg (Peter Medinger), David (Laurie) Noelke, Kathryn (Khodor) Noelke-Baalbaki, Kelly (Toby) Noelke-Dixon (Toby), Alec Brzowsky, Robert Brzowsky, Lisa (Ryan) Mackey-Taylor, Michael Mackey, Maria (Sam) Mackey-Kube, Brian Elliott and Luke Elliott. She is also survived by her great-grandchildren, Samuel, Lucas and Megan Anderegg, Nicholas, Madeline and Jack Noelke, Dorothy Rae Noelke-Dixon, Melanie and Hailey Taylor, a very special brother and sister-in-law; Richard (Rosia) Brzowsky, and lastly but just as important, she is survived by her faithful visitor, Putter Mackey-Kube, her lovable Golden Doodle.
Marie was blessed with many wonderful lifelong friends and new friends from Ona Terrace and Spring Brook. She looked forward to the many birthday luncheons and reunions with classmates from St. James and Aquinas. Her smile was contagious and her concern for others was genuine.
