John and Marie enjoyed their long and loving marriage in the St. Cloud area, last residing at Rolling Ridge Road. She was especially proud of her years working at the St. Cloud Credit Bureau, with her brother Peter at the Sanitary Market and DeZurik Corp. She was a member of St. Michaels Catholic Church, the Legion of Mary, and St. Francis Mission Group.

Marie is survived by her sons, Richard (Susan) of Plymouth, Thomas (Marlene) of St. Cloud, Robert (Nikki) of St. Cloud, William (Kathy) of Plymouth and Wallace (Suzanne) of St. Cloud; 18 grandchildren; 31 great grandchildren; one great great grandchild; and brother, Wally Pflepsen of Melbourne Beach, FL; and many nieces and nephews.
