GLENVIEW, Ill. - Marian Harris, 90, of Glenview, passed away peacefully at her home, Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020.
She was born in Ironwood, Michigan, on Oct. 5, 1929, to the late George and Juliana (Hledko) Pasco. She was baptized at Holy Trinity Catholic Church and grew up on Pine Street.
After graduating from Luther L. Wright High School, Marian moved to Chicago to work as a secretary. There, she married John E. Harris on July 18, 1958. She returned to secretarial work after her husband's death in 1979. She was a devoted wife and mother who treasured her family and her faith.
Aunt Dolly, as she was affectionately known, was an amazing self-taught cook and baker. She enjoyed playing pinochle, listening to country music, and sharing memories of Ironwood and Michigan's North Woods.
She is deeply missed by her children Janet (Sam) DiMaggio, Kathleen Harris, Julie (Richard) Duff, John (Kim) Harris and Maureen (Ben) Ornelas; 15 cherished grandchildren; five treasured great-grandchildren (another expected near her birthday); and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband; parents; and 10 siblings, George (Anne) Pasco, Bette (Frank) Keres, Joe (Bernie) Pasco, Ann (Peter) Tobaka, Marge (Sulo) Wainio, Helen (Don) Steigelman, Paula (Ben) Burczak, John Pasco, Stephen Pasco (infant) and Patsy (Joe) Yale.
Marian's life will be honored with a private family service. Expressions of sympathy may be shared through her tribute page at legacy.com.
