Eleanor Marianne Lundberg, loving and devoted wife of the late Harold A. Lundberg, passed away on April 7, 2014 at Epoch of Norton. She had struggled many years with Alzheimers and succumbed to complications thereof. She would have been 92 in May. Marianne was born in Minnesota to the late Oskar Hjalmar and Agnes (Brood) Ostrom, who were Swedish-American Baptist missionaries to the Belgian Congo at the time. She grew up in the Quincy and Dorchester areas of Mass, graduating with the class of 1940 from Quincy High School. She later received her B.A. and R.N. at Simmons College School of Nursing in Boston. Among the places Marianne held nursing positions were McLean Hospital, Mass. and Bethel College, Minn. where she would meet her love, Harold. While raising a family in Easton, Marianne took to full-time babysitting from her home and had a loving and caring impact on the hearts of a number of children who are now grown but recall their time with Lundy fondly. After attending Trinity Baptist Church of Brockton for many years, Harold and Marianne were instrumental in the founding of Easton Baptist Church, remaining life-long members. In recent years they resided in Raynham with family. Marianne leaves behind two sons and their families: Ken and Carol (Scholla) Lundberg of Louisville, Ky. and grandson, Andrew Lundberg and Steven and Rebecca (Cragan) Lundberg of Raynham, Mass. and granddaughter, Emily Lundberg.
