Marilynn Dudovick, 64

Marilynn Dudovick, 64 Marilynn Dudovick entered heaven peacefully on Nov. 13, 2015, at age 64 with her family by her side after a yearlong courageous battle with cancer.

She was a loving wife, mom and “Nana.” She loved her family and looked forward to spending time with her grandchildren. Nana will always be remembered for her extreme generosity, thoughtfulness, energetic spirit and outrageous gourmet-style cooking. Marilynn loved bird watching, gardening, and making the best painted-cement birdbaths ever. It was hard to keep up with Marilynn as every day she was on the go and expressed her love through her creative touch.

She is preceded in death by her daughter, Dawn Dudovick; mother, Norma Nordman (Jensen); and father, Everette Nordman. She leaves to cherish her memory her loving husband, Jim Dudovick; her daughter, Traci (Tom) Rummel; and grandchildren, Daeton, Caden, Paige, Pierce, and Madison. She was loved and had many friends. Her nurturing soul will never be forgotten. To honor her wishes there will not be a funeral, but rather a celebration of her life reception, which will take place 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015, at Lake Arrowhead Clubhouse (1195 Apache Lane, Town of Rome).

Thank you to everyone that supported and loved Marilynn and her family during her time of illness. The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at UW-Madison Cancer Center for their support, and the Ministry Home Care Hospice staff for the excellent care given to Marilynn on her final days.
