Marion Milnikel, 95, of St. Joseph, MI peacefully passed away into the arms of her Lord and Savior on Friday, December 11, 2020 at her home.

Burial will follow at Riverview Cemetery in St. Joseph. Memorials may be made to Trinity Lutheran Church or the Lutheran Hour Ministries.

Marion was born August 1, 1925 in St. Joseph, MI to Matthew & Ida (Berk) Stockman. She graduated from St. Joseph High School in 1943. On February 12, 1949 she married Eugene Milnikel at Trinity Lutheran Church in St. Joseph. Marion was a lifelong member of Trinity where she sang in the choir. She also enjoyed singing with the St. Joseph Monday Musical Club. Marion was a gracious, warm, generous, loving person, a caregiver to her core. She found much joy working in her garden with an incredible gift for helping plants bloom and grow.

Marion was made a child of her Heavenly Father in baptism on August 23, 1925. She never forgot she was a forgiven sinner through the death and resurrection of her Savior, Jesus Christ. Marion allowed her Lord to use her to meet His purposes and she is alive now in the nearer presence of her dear Lord.

Marion is survived by her son Thomas (Jenifer) Milnikel; grandchildren Sara (Stacey) Charron-Milnikel and great-grandchildren Emmett and Ivy Charron-Milnikel, and Paul (Haylee) Milnikel and great-grandchild Grantner Milnikel. Marion was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and siblings Allen Stockman, Robert Stockman and Elaine Jenkins.

I have so many special memories of my Aunt Marion, my mom's big sister. They were always together, working, playing, cooking, laughing, singing, taking care of family, and showing us kids how to be family. I remember mornings at the beach, rides to and from school and a bit of TV time with cousin, Tom. Holidays were always special and wonderful times to be together. When we moved away, so were the summertime visits. Aunt Marion loved everything about family and she shared that love with all of us. Thank you for that love and for many memories. I and my family will miss you. Love, Laura

I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth. Job 19:25

Marion was the nicest and sweetest person I had the pleasure of getting to know over the last 25 years. She and my mother were friends since the age of 5, went through grade school at Trinity together, were confirmed together and attended St. Joe high together. They sang in the Trinity choir together and in later years had their monthly "Class of '43" luncheons. She was comforting and helpful to me after I lost my mother 4 years ago and at times she and I would meet for Chinese lunches. I will miss her but my life has been richer for knowing her. My sympathies to you, Tom and Jenifer, in the loss of one special mother. Cheryl Schulte
