Marion was born May 23, 1929, in Milwaukee, the daughter of Erwin and Myrtle (Pavlik) Rohde. She married Jason Krempien in 1949 and the couple spent 50 years together until his death in 2000. Marion loved her family and was a true artist at heart. She ran her own ceramics studio, Marion’s Inland Ceramics, something that she was very proud of. She was a life-long member of the Order of Eastern Star. In her free time, Marion enjoyed flowers and gardening, traveling with her family, spending time on the farm and taking care of her cats. She was a tough, independent woman whose example taught resilience to all those who knew her. Marion will be deeply missed by those she leaves behind.
