HAMILTON – Marianne Kroetz Nims, 76, of Hamilton, passed away Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012, at the Marcus Daly Hospice. She was born March 23, 1936, in Goeppingen, Germany, the daughter of Fritz and Theresia Kroetz.

Marianne was raised and educated in Germany. She came to the United States in 1956 and settled in Colorado. Marianne moved to California a few years later. She married William "Bill" Nims in 1969. Marianne worked for Pacific Telephone Co. for more than 25 years, retiring in 1985. Bill passed away in 1986 and Marianne moved to Hamilton in 1992.

She had an affinity for animals and loved listening to her music. Marianne was also preceded in death by her parents.

She is survived by two sisters, Hilde Kroetz and Else Krannich, both of Gronau, Germany. She will also be greatly missed by her dear friends, especially Daniel and Wendy May, Gordon and Zynette Read, Lily Golden, Monica Blue and Bob Witt, all of the Hamilton area.

Services will be held at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, at the Daly-Leach Chapel. The family suggests that memorials be made in Marianne's name to Marcus Daly Hospice (1200 Westwood Drive, Hamilton, MT 59840) or to the Bitter Root Humane Association (262 Fairgrounds Road, Hamilton, MT 59840).
