Marilyn N. Mowery

Marilyn Mowery, 86, of Rocky River formerly of Bay Village, passed away on Tuesday, February 15, 2022. She was born June 3, 1935 in Cleveland, Ohio to the late Bert and Ruth (nee Gronemeyer) Nichols.

Marilyn was a fabulous stay-at-home mother, and was always there for her kids and grandkids, even through adulthood. She was very supportive of the hopes and dreams of all her kids.

As a proud mother, she faithfully attended sporting and other events for her children and her grandchildren. She was a good listener, you could always go to her with your problems.

She was a great cook and enjoyed eating well. She was generous, kind, fun and had a great sense of humor. Her husband Ralph retired early and they traveled the world, enjoying trips overseas, numerous cruises and two weeks in Florida each winter together. She loved airplanes and never passed up an opportunity to fly, getting plenty of free flight passes from 4 of her children who were flight attendants  Marilyn would make friends on these many adventures and stay in touch through letters over the years. She was also an avid reader, loved sports, especially the Browns and Indians, and made every birthday and holiday a special event.

Left to cherish her memory are her children Ralph (Kelly) Mowery, Jr., Sue (Dave) Kohl, Lynn (Rich) Sirizzotti, Rick (Heidie) Mowery, Dave Mowery, Scott (Vicci) Mowery and son-in-law Mike Rogozinski; grandchildren Rick, Jackie (Joe), Ashley (Henry), Alex (Ashley), Candace, Jonathan, Matthew, Samantha, Scott, Caitlyn, Casey, Julie, and Amy; and 8 great grandchildren.
