Notice Condolences

Sibylle "Sally" Marks Notice
Marks, Sibylle "Sally" Sally died December 7, 2012, at the age of 82, from cancer. Preceded in death by her mother, Elizabeth Friedman Matis and her father, Solomon Matis, she is survived by her husband Raube "Robb", step sons John and James Marks, step daughter Jean Marks (Joseph) Yon, granddaughter Elizabeth Marks, grandsons, Michael, Kyle and Sean Freeman, cousins David (Laura) and Louise Iushewitz, Sheldon (Illeane) Shwartz and Sylvia (Elliot) Goldin. Sally's stage career began at the age of 3. From there she went with her mother to Hollywood where she made several movies. Her mother died when she was ten and Sally was brought back to the Midwest to be raised by her aunt Bessie and uncle Eddie Iushewitz. After college, she worked as a Medical Technologist at Saint Michael's and finally as a Computer Systems Analyst for what is now Wheaton Franciscan. After her retirement, she thought she would try acting again and in December of 2007, Sally appeared in her first play in 35 years. In the next five years, she appeared in nine more productions. A memorial gathering is being planned for a later time. Please make any personal memorials for Sally in the form of donations to Wheaton Franciscan Hospice.
