AUSTIN -- Marian Cecelia Kroc, 84, of Austin, was called to God on Monday, June 11, 2007.
She was born Feb. 4, 1923 in Mason City, Iowa to James and Louise (Tousignant) Dandelet. She moved to Austin with her family when she was a young girl and graduated from St. Augustine High School, where she was the first homecoming queen. Marian served in the United States Navy as a WAVE from 1943 to 1946. On Aug. 30, 1947, she married Bernard Kroc at Queen of Angels Catholic Church. From this union came the birth of eight children.
Over the years Marian was very active in the Catholic Church, was an avid golfer and deeply enjoyed playing bridge. In her later years she found gardening to be relaxing and delighted in the sight of flowers. Marian was dearly loved by her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to whom, for some, she was known as Grandma GG. She lived life to the fullest and will be dearly missed.
