Marie Rose Mlinar, 85, formerly of Forest City, entered into His loving care on November, 1, 2019.
Born June 20, 1934 in Carbondale, she was the daughter of the late Jake and Mary Mlinar. Meme, as she was known by her family and friends, was a life-long resident of Forest City until she moved 5 years ago to be closer to her son, Francis, in New Jersey. She was a resident of Hamilton Continuing Care Center, Hamilton, NJ, where she was known and loved by all. Known for her smile, her hugs, and her “pats” on the butt. Meme knew all the residents and their visitors, and many times greeted them at the door as they came to visit. She was a regular in the activities room; she loved to play volleyball and Bingo, and attended mass services.
Marie is survived by her son, Francis and his wife Madelyn, Lawrenceville, NJ; two grandsons, Jacob and his wife Annemarie, Bordentown, NJ; and Austin, Lawrenceville, NJ. She had the opportunity to meet her great-granddaughter, Eleanor Francis, before she passed. She is also survived by her sister, Dorothy Curtis and her husband, Butch, and her brother Robert Mlinar and his wife Lois; and many nieces, great-nieces and great-nephews.
