November 24, 1924 — March 12, 2022

Marian (Mimi) Holmgren, 97, passed away peacefully on March 12, 2022 in Rockford, IL. She was born November 24, 1924 to Ernest and Cecelia (Cuchna) Larsen in Chicago, IL.

She worked several years in administration at Rockford College and also for the Rockford Park District where she made many great friends and memories before retiring in 1986. She and Marshall were members of Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church and enjoyed singing together in the choir and participating actively in church events.
