Marilyn Williams-Jursnick

April 29, 1938 ~ March 5, 2014

Marilyn Williams-Jursnick, 75, died Wednesday, March 5, 2014, following a long battle with pulmonary fibrosis. She was born April 29, 1938, to Byrle and Evelyn Bradshaw in Glendive, MT. After graduating from high school in Quincy, WA, Marilyn moved with her husband, Ike Williams, to Butte, MT, where she raised her family while employed by the Anaconda Minerals Co. In 1983, Marilyn relocated to Wenatchee, as one of the original employees for Asamera Minerals. During her time in Wenatchee, she married Dan Jursnick. In 1988, Marilyn was honored to be selected as the first woman inducted into the Applarians, where she and Dan enjoyed many years of travel and friendships. Marilyn also served several years as the chair of Mobile Meals.

Marilyn was a wonderful mother and caregiver and will be greatly missed. In spite of her lengthy illness, she retained her optimism and sense of humor. Her first priority was always to her family and wide circle of friends. She was a fiercely loyal cheerleader to her grandchildren. We are indebted to the many friends and neighbors who made up her extended family.

Marilyn was preceded in death by her parents and husbands. Marilyn is survived by her sister and nephews: Jackie Weber, Eric and Weston; her children: Michelle Hall (Bill), Brad Williams (Carol) and Brent Williams (Debbie); and her seven loving grandchildren: Zach and Jess Hall, Elyse (Kade) Martin, Brianne (Nick) Highsmith, Jordyn Williams, and Maddie and Connor Williams. On March 4, 2014, Marilyn was blessed with her first great-grandson, Jaxton Kade Martin.

Mom left us with the words, “Don’t cry because I’m gone; smile because I was here.”

Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday, March 10, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, with Burial following at Wenatchee City Cemetery. Viewing will take place at the church prior to the Mass. Rosary will be held at 10:15 a.m., prior to the Mass at the church. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society or St. Joseph’s Catholic Church of Wenatchee. Arrangements are by Telford’s Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee.
