Marie Thyen

d. October 31, 2022

Marie E. (Andrle) Thyen
Age 87, of North Branch, formerly of Cottage Grove, went home to her Lord and Savior October 31, 2022. She was born on the family farm in River Falls, Wisconsin, on September 16, 1935. She was the first of eight siblings. She met the love of her life, Eddie, in December 1956 and married in September 1957 and spent 64 wonderful years together. Their marriage was blessed with three children.

She had many passions and interests that included playing guitar and singing, square dancing, researching and studying her Bohemian/Czechoslovakian ancestry, carrying on the tradition of making kolaches, decorating for Christmas, early morning quiet times studying God’s word, and flower gardening with Eddie. They were honored to receive an award from the City of Cottage Grove for their beautiful yard.

Above all other passions was her family, she loved spending time with her husband, children, and cherished grandchild, Madeline. She also enjoyed time spent with her brother, sisters, and friends. She was compassionate and caring to all who met her, she loved to laugh and do kind things for others. Fondest memories include her singing to her children and playing her guitar, the many hugs, cuddles, giggles, teaching them about God and prayer, how to love each other, the importance of family, and showing us each how to appreciate how special and unique we all are. She was a stay-at-home Mom for many years, which her children thoroughly cherished. She worked for Linn Enterprises, and then for Ecolab.

She is survived by her children: Kathy Fragale, Anthony (Julene) Thyen, and Sharon (Doug) Payne; granddaughter, Madeline (Austin) Fragale-Patraw; step-grandchildren, Sarah and Andrew Payne; sisters, Char (Bradley) Bourasa, and Alice Nibbe. Brother Gene (Donna) Andrle. Many nieces, nephews, and friends.
