Obituary for Marlyn L. Priebe

Marlyn “Boysie” Leo Priebe, age 87 of Stacy passed away on Friday, May 10, 2019 at home surrounded by his family.

Marlyn was born on September 20, 1931 in Spring Lake to Leo and Alma (Keocher) Priebe. After his father passed away the family moved to St. Paul. He graduated from Harding High School and shortly thereafter he enlisted in the Navy and was transferred to the Merchant Marines. He was a lifelong member of the Coast Guard. Marlyn married Joyce Lindell on June 9, 1951 and they made their home in Stacy where they raised their four children and enjoyed their three grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Marlyn enjoyed hunting, fishing at the cabin, traveling, music, dancing, reading and feeding the wildlife so he could watch them from his window. He also loved gardening and was said to have had “the best sweet corn in the county.” Marlyn obtained his boiler license and worked at various medical facilities including Bethesda Hospital, Apache Medical Center and Parmly until his retirement. He also for a time went back to working on the Iron Ore Ships on the Great Lakes as an Engineer.

Marlyn will remain in the hearts of his wife Joyce; daughters, Kathy Lindberg and Kim Becker and son, Brian (Vicki) Priebe; grandsons, Brandon Johnson and Nicholas Becker; great granddaughter, Alixandrea Becker and great grandsons, Dylan and Dartanian Johnson; brother, Larry (Donna) Nelson and extended family and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents Leo and Alma Priebe-Nelson, son, Bruce Priebe, grandson, Nathaniel Becker, son in law Gilbert Becker, sister, Norma Frenning and brother David Nelson.

The family would like to express a sincere thank you to his neighbors for their help and support that enabled him to remain in his home that he loved.
