MARIANNE OXLER Obituary
Marianne Oxler, 69, Leawood, Kan., loving wife, mother and grandmother passed away peacefully at home January 18, 2014, in the company of her family. She was born Nov. 24, 1944, in Upper Darby, Pa. She is preceded in death by her parents, Bernard and Margaret Shea, and her brother, Tom Shea. She is survived by her sister and lifelong friend, Patty Legenza (Ken). She is loved by husband of 46 years, Dan Oxler, their five children, Mark Oxler (Megan), Karen Rippey (Ted), Susan Hermes (Sean), Christine Cowan (Wellan), and Kathleen Fendler (Tim), and their 10 grandchildren. Marianne attended St. Therese Little Flower Grade School and Loretto Academy High School, and graduated with honors from Mount Saint Scholastica with a degree in English. Her strong social conscience and belief that all children deserved an education led her first to work as a Catholic Lay volunteer in Oklahoma City. Upon moving to Kansas City, she taught underprivileged youth through the Head Start Program, tutored students and helped develop library resources for Christ the King School and St. Therese Little Flower. She was spiritual to the core and truly lived her Catholic faith as a Cure of Ars parishioner, choir member, and dedicated service member of Our Ladies of Charity and Marillac Auxiliary. Marianne's kind heart and generosity made her a friend to many, all of whom can remember a thoughtful, handwritten note or a homemade quiche. She shared her love of reading with her book group of forty years. She was an enthusiastic traveler and photographer. She lived a selfless life of devotion to others. Her greatest joy was her family and she will forever be cherished in their memory. Those who knew Marianne will swear they never heard her speak a bad word about anyone. Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22, at Cure of Ars Church, 9403 Mission Rd. A visitation will be from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21, at Cure of Ars Church, with rosary at 4:30 p.m. Memorial contributions may be made to Ladies of Charity, PO Box 480753, KCMO 64148, or Mount St. Scholastica, 801 S. Eighth Street, Atchison, KS 66002. Condolences may be left online at www.mcgilleystatelinechapel.com Arr.: McGilley State Line Chapel, 12301 State Line Road, Kansas City.
