Marilyn Jean Thiel, 90, passed away in Mineral Wells, Texas on May 18, 2020. She was born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin to George and Ruth Quasius in 1930. In 1948 she graduated from Sheboygan North High School. She was described as being “the life of the party, on with the dance and mischief as her middle name”.
Marilyn married Carl Thiel and became a military wife which allowed her extensive travels worldwide. She loved to bowl and was honored to be a member of the Mineral Wells Women’s Bowling Hall of Fame. Marilyn was a talented seamstress and took up tailoring in Japan. She was very proud to work as a teacher’s aide in the early 1970’s. She had an artistic nature and later in life took up cake decorating which led to the opening of Party Land in Mineral Wells.
She was a loving wife, devoted sister and awesome mother to Jeff and Terry. Her many friendships over the years were very important and special to her. We would like to Thank all of her friends, neighbors and caregivers who made an extra effort to try and make her last years better.
She is survived by her son Jeffrey of Mineral Wells, daughter Terry and husband Ken Dingwall of Sugar Land, Tx, sister Judith Stockinger and partner Sam Zelpe of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, seven nephews, one niece and eight grandnieces and grandnephews.
She is predeceased by her husband Carl, parents George and Ruth, sister Darlene and brother Richard.
