(nee Doman) Born to Life on June 22, 1930. Departed this Life on February 27, 2023. Age 92 years. Marion had been a resident of the Milwaukee Catholic Home since 2019 and of New Berlin, Wisconsin previously. Daughter of the late Judson A. and Angeline (Caspary) Doman. Beloved wife of the late Donald E. Trost. Loving mother of Lisa P. Trost. Proud grandmother of Laurel E. Doak. Dear sister of Patricia R. (Ronald) Koeske, Judson H. Doman (the late Jeanne) and the late William J. (Ruth) Doman. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Marion was born in Milwaukee, WI and moved to Eagle, WI as a child where her parents purchased a farm. She attended both East Troy and Palmyra High Schools. In 1953, she met Don Trost on a blind date arranged by mutual, loving friends. They were married on October 3, 1953. The couple welcomed their only child, Lisa, several years later. The family moved to suburban Chicago in 1963 and remained there until 1980 when Don and Marion returned to New Berlin, WI.
Her early life on the farm gave Marion an abiding love for animals. Over the years, she had a variety of beloved canine companions, including Mandy, Mitzie, Benny, and Rocky.
Family was the most important thing in Marion’s life. She excelled at providing a welcoming home and delicious meals for family gatherings. She was happiest when there was a lot of family around her. Or when she was playing bridge or square dancing with Don.
In the 1970’s, Marion returned to work outside the home in a variety of capacities. When they moved back to Wisconsin, she returned to Cutler-Hammer, now Eaton, where both she and Don had worked in the early days of their marriage. They both retired from that same company in the mid-1990’s.
In retirement, she returned to the homemaking activities that she loved, hosting family and friends with delicious meals, making pies for church bake sales, and cookies for her granddaughter.
A graveside service is being planned for May 13, 2023 at the Oak Ridge Cemetery in East Troy, Wisconsin.
