Rejoicing with the Heavenly Angels today that our Lord Jesus has brought His faithful servant Marion home to celebrate with Him. We will miss you more than I can express in words, Grandma, but what an honor for you to get to join God, our Heavenly Father, in this Holy Week.

-Cerise Van Luven (Oldest Grandchild)

Marion Ruth Brosz, 88, Edgeley, ND, passed away Monday April 15, 2019 at Jamestown Regional Medical Center after suffering a stroke.

She was born on August 29, 1930 as the firstborn to Sophie (Tobolski) and Frank Taszarek on a farmstead outside of Edgeley. Marion often enjoyed sharing memories of her responsibilities and the challenges of growing up as an oldest child in the 30s. From early on, she was the nurturer to her 4 younger siblings. Marion attended a rural school and later boarded in town in order to earn money. Perhaps this monetary freedom is what grew into her love for fashion and flare. While waitressing in the local caf, Marion met and fell in love with her future husband, Joe Jangula.

Marion and Joe were married on May 28, 1956. Through this union they were blessed with 7 children. This is where her true calling began. If given the chance to earn a degree she would’ve mastered the art of Ag and Home Economics. With a handful of laughing young children scattered throughout the yard, Marion tended her gardens, butchered the chickens, milked the family cow, and put supper on the table for not only her own family but often extra mouths. Holidays were always special to her and her children. A vivid memory is coming downstairs in the late-night hours when we all should have been sleeping, knowing the Easter baskets must be hidden in the best places, and finding Mom on her knees scrubbing the kitchen floor. Christmas time never disappointed the Jangula children. Mom had matching handmade outfits she had personally designed for her two girls and a carefully planned out gift for each of her children. Treasured old family photos display a mother who meticulously and lovingly doted over her brood. As the years went on, Marion took on the challenge of raising teenagers and working in town. She held various jobs. She was a cashier at The Red Owl, a cook at the Sales Barn and numerous restaurants. Marion still found time and a passion for entertaining in her home. She hosted countless holidays showcasing her unbeatable cooking and baking.

On June 27 of 1980, Marion married Ed Brosz. She never passed up an opportunity to jump in the 18-wheeler and head cross county with him. Marion and Ed also enjoyed old-time dancing on the weekends. They shared 18 years together until Ed’s death on December 1, 1998.

Although Marion wore many hats throughout her employment years, it was Manor St. Joseph that she poured her heart and soul into. She took pride in serving up her delicious meals to the residents. She treasured the comradery with her coworkers. Retiring from the Manor was without question the most difficult transition she would face in her life. Due to failing health, Marion moved into Edgeley in January of 2014. In April of 2018 she moved into Ave Maria Village in Jamestown. Mom thrived in this new lively, active environment. She loved being pampered with frequent hair dos and manicures. Attending mass and various activities helped her discover a new found energy.

She was a lifelong member of the Catholic Church of the Transfiguration in Edgeley, ND and a member of the Altar Society. Mom had a strong devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and recited countless rosaries which sustained her through the many trials and triumphs of her life.

Marion is survived by her seven children: Jerome Jangula of Park Rapids MN; Frank (Nancy) Jangula of Jud, ND; Mary Jo (Michael) Mutchler of Weatherford, TX; Barbara (Doug) Barnick of Jud, ND; Kevin (Tammy) of Edgeley, ND; David (Wellah) Jangula of Edgeley, ND; Jeffrey (Delia) Jangula of Logan, IA. Three step-children: Tim (Sonya) Brosz of Sherman, TX; Tom (Judy) Brosz of Bismarck, ND; Dorinda (Roger) Fisher of Sartell, MN. Numerous beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren. One brother, Eugene (Marlys) Taszarek of Kulm, ND; a sister-in-law Barbara Taszarek of Edgeley, ND; and a brother-in-law Ronald Hall of Bellevue, NE. Several nieces and nephews.
