Marilyn was born August 10, 1930, at the family home in Ansley. She was the 8th child born to Roy and Fannie (Tomsicek) Patterson. Marilyn attended school at Ansley Public School, graduating as Valedictorian of the class of 1948.

 Marilyn married Keith Hogg January 1, 1950 at the Methodist Church in Ansley. They lived in Ansley, Broken Bow, Loup City, rural Arcadia, and those “forsaken hills” in the Ash Canyon area. In 1960 they moved to their home near Ansley where they lived and farmed for the next 61 years.

Marilyn’s life was dedicated to her family. Her life literally revolved around her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She spent endless hours reading to her “grands”, and making sure they all knew they were loved and cherished. Marilyn and Keith worked together to plant and grow and harvest a large garden. Many hours of canning, pickling and preserving took place in Marilyn’s kitchen; several jars of canned goods were shared with family and friends.

Marilyn and Keith spent many afternoons and evenings enjoying Royals baseball and Husker football and volleyball. One soon learned not to call and interrupt game time. They also were faithful fans and attendees at athletic competitions and music concerts involving their kids and grandkids.

Marilyn rarely missed an opportunity to send a card and write a letter no matter the occasion. It was important to her to remember friends and family with a special note and/or card. She was a faith-filled believer and raised her children to honor God and become grounded in their faith. Acquiring a quality education was a high priority to her, consequently the family has designated memorial funds be directed toward a scholarship fund in Marilyn’s name.

 Those left to cherish her memory include children, Wayne (Linda) Hogg of Menomonie, WI, Marilee (Jim) Kulhanek of Kearney, Beverly (Gary) Deaver of rural Ansley, Shirley Ryan of Overton, Julie (Neil) Ostrand of rural Mason City, and Janet (Craig) Slack of Ansley; more than 20 grandchildren and spouses, more than 50 great grandchildren, and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.

 Marilyn was preceded in death by her husband Keith, parents, brothers LeRoy (Bette) Patterson, Doug (Evelyn) Patterson, Dick (Irene) Patterson, sisters Hazel (Paul) Hookstra, Veryl (Dave) Fowler, Patt (Pete) Nordholm, Betty Jane Patterson, and one grandson Nick Ryan.
