Marianne B. Foussard (Nee Bonner)

Scottsdale - February 7, 1929- April 22, 2021

Marianne Foussard passed peacefully on April 22, 2021 in Scottsdale, AZ. She was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and attended Nativity School, Convent of the Visitation, and Saint Catherine's College. She is predeceased by her parents, John and Marie Bonner, her sisters Margaret Cooney and Patricia Plunkett, infant son Charles and her husband Roger. She is survived by her daughter Claudia, sons Louis and Phillip (Jeanne), nephew Bill, grandchildren Dawnielle, Daniel and Claire, great-grandson Zach and many other nieces and nephews. Marianne and her dear Roger were avid world travelers, lovers of music, boating, tennis and picnics. They were ringleaders for fun with their big group of friends and no place was more fun than their home of 60 years on Deer Lake in Wisconsin. Following the loss of the love of her life in October, Marianne spent the last six months limited by COVID restrictions, but she maintained her quick wit and sharp sense of humor until the very end. We know Marianne is now boating in heaven with her singing Roger and their merry crew. Special thanks to her dear friend Fern Tomita whose assistance allowed Marianne to remain independent in her Arizona home.

Marianne and Roger were my parents' best friends. I know they are all together again laughing, singing and loving to be together again. I am grateful they were part of my life. Such generosity, kindness and fun! They will be missed by so many. My sympathy and love to Phil, Claudia, Louie, Billy and all the family.

I remember Tom Dosdall telling me that Marianne Bonner was the most beautiful girl in St Paul. And she was! A beautiful face, a beautiful heart, and a beautiful spirit. Deer Lake is less than it was without Marianne and Roger. Bless their memories and thank you for all they contributed.
