Marlys Deanna (Rodenberg) Friedlein

Of Guttenberg, IA received her wings at the age of 75 on September 13, 2017. 

            Marlys was the first child of Morris and Delite Rodenberg, born on March 16th, 1942. She graduated school in Guttenberg in 1960. On October 7, 1961 she married Larry Friedlein, her high school sweetheart. They made their first home together at “The Round Barn” in Millville. They later moved to Larry’s Grandpa’s farm just West of Guttenberg. Together they had three children, one boy and two girls. Marlys and Larry farmed in rural Guttenberg all of their married life.

            She was always hands-on at the farms. The word workaholic would best describe her. She could be found mowing her lawn or chasing cattle. Each fall she would be in the field harvesting corn in her favorite piece of farm equipment. A combine that seemed to have been made for her containing her initials “MF” (Massey Ferguson). She was always the favorite waitress at “The Kountry Manor”, “Doug’s Steakhouse”, and “Lakeside Ballroom”. For 15 years she enjoyed outfitting brides at her two daughters’ bridal shop. She was an avid baker  who was known for her pies and other baked goodies at the Farmers Market in Guttenberg, in addition to her Grandchildren.         Marlys was a lifelong member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Guttenberg. She taught Sunday school for several years and remained active with several church committees. She was also a volunteer at the Guttenberg Municipal Hospital gift shop. In her years, babysitting for her Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren brought her the greatest joy.

            She is survived by her beloved husband Larry Friedlein, son Jeff (Kari) Friedlein, daughter Julie (Dan) Finnegan, and daughter Jody (Troy) Mizell. Grandchildren Brandon (Margo) Friedlein, Taylor (Nick) Chase, Joe (Emily) Finnegan, Courtney Finnegan, Zak Mizell, and Makenzie Mizell. Great Grandchildren Levi Chase, Maisyn Chase, and Ashlynn Finnegan. Brother

Roger (Pat) Rodenberg, sister Susan (Dennis) Koehn, and sister-in-law Vondell Stockel. In addition to many nieces, nephews, and cousins. 

            She was preceded in death by a Grandson Derek Friedlein, her parents Morris and Delite Rodenberg, in-laws LaVerne and Dorothy Friedlein, and brother-in-law Bill Stockel.
