Marion Elaine Frye, age 92 of Hudson, died peacefully on April 4, 2021 at the Christian Community Home in Hudson, Wisconsin.

Marion was born on October 1, 1928 in Fairfax, Minnesota to Frank and Catherine (Andert) Prax. She grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota, and on June 12, 1948, Marion was united in marriage to the love of her life, Howard Frye. The couple was truly devoted to each other, and was blessed with a beautiful daughter, Sherry. As their family continued to grow over the years with the addition of grand and great-grandchildren, Marion continued to cherish  and treasure her family. Marion worked for many years at Bell Telephone Company as a Telephone Operator, retiring in 1986.

Marion and Howard enjoyed gardening and tending their flowers and vegetables. The couple was found spending their summer weekends at the Lake Park Resort on Devil’s Lake in Webster, WI, where they delighted in visiting with family and friends.  As Marion’s heath deteriorated, Howard took excellent and loving care of her, before she was moved into Christian Community Home. At CCH, Marion enjoyed getting to know the staff as a second family, and looked forward to the many activities and events that were offered for her to participate in. She possessed a strong Catholic faith and believed that God was in control.

Marion will remain in the hearts of her daughter, Sherry (Mark) Nelson; grandchildren, Erin (Josh) Klinger, Kelly (Kristopher) Newman, and Kevin (Caitlin Puffer) Nelson; great-grandchildren, Caleb, Greta, Miles, Henry, and Louis; brothers-in-law, Herbert Frye, Eldon Frye, and Jerome “Jerry” (Gaye) Frye; many nieces and nephews; and her family of caring nurses and staff at Christian Community Home who brought joy and love to her life.

She is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 70 years and best friend, Howard; her parents, Frank and Catherine Prax; and siblings, Frank Prax, Lillian Conrad, Adele Berg, Gladys Heiburger, Adeline Olson, and Helen Stone.

    • Sherry: So sorry to hear of the death of your mom. I always enjoyed visiting with her when my mom was also at CCH. She was always so upbeat and her love for your dad was so evident. I enjoyed watching them play bingo – they enjoyed it so much! I’m thinking of you at this sad time…
