Marilyn Geving Obituary

Surrounded by family, Marilyn, passed away peacefully at her home on December 27th 2023 at the age of 77.

She was born October 12th 1946 in Roseau, Minnesota to George and Vearl (Randall) Howg. Marilyn grew up in Cohasset and attended school in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. She was married to her loving husband, Ron, on June 27th 1964. Together they raised four beautiful children and built a life they loved in Deer River. Marilyn worked various jobs throughout her life which included Howg’s River Side Meats, a dental assistant at Deer River Dental, owner and operator of The Pizza House, and spent a short amount of time at Blueberry Bowl. Her true calling in life was a career as a paraprofessional at the Deer River King School. Her love of children also led to becoming a foster parent.

She enjoyed reading, scrapbooking, listening to country gospel, family reunions, playing word games, and would never miss an opportunity to travel. The highlight of her travels was a once in a lifetime trip to Sweden with her mother, sisters Val and Sheila, and nephew Zach. It was also noted she’d never miss an episode of All My Children. Above all else she enjoyed spending time with family, going above and beyond to ensure they all knew how much she loved them. Marilyn truly was one of a kind and will be greatly missed.

Marilyn is survived by her husband Ron of 59 years, daughter Gayle Morris, sons Steven (Sharon) Geving, Robby (Dayna) Geving, Brian (Vicki) Geving. Grandchildren Brianna (Billy) Wood, Brady Geving, Tony Smith, Bert (Cynthia) Smith, Ashley (Travis) Deegan, Shelby (Cody) Geving, Taylor (Keith) Geving, Jace (Danica) Geving, Payton Medrano, and 15 great grandchildren. Sister Val (Eugene) Carpenter, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Preceded in death by parents George and Vearl (Randall) Howg. Brothers Dale and Gene Howg, sisters Sheryl Pogue and Sheila Deutsch, and granddaughter Tara Geving.
