Marriette had a great love for gardening and canning. She loved to bake for her family and if you said you didn’t want any she would say, “I’ll get you some!” She loved to go fishing whenever she could.

Through the years Marriette was a great memory maker, from baking and cooking for people to playing baseball in the yard. She loved to plan family reunions and cook for hunters whether she knew they were coming or not. She always had coffee on and something good to eat.
Marriette is survived by her son, Michael (Patty) Schultz; daughter Debi (Marty) Barattini; son Lynn (Tamee) Schultz; nine grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
Marriette is preceded in death by her husband Edwin, her parents Art and Anna Baney, four sisters, one brother, and great-grandson Wyatt Michael Hanisch.
