Marilyn Andruski, 73, was born to John and Mary Guettsche and raised in Hutchinson, Kan. Having survived the Depression, she went on to raise two daughters, often as a single mother. A hard and caring worker, she managed the personnel department of a major retailer, launched a real estate career in Virginia, and completed her work life within the Social Services of California.
She and Frank Andruski were lovingly married on Valentine’s Day, 1998.
Once retired, she had the opportunity to see Payson, and decided that this was where she wanted to spend the rest of her life. With her husband, Frank, she became a loved member of the Ponderosa Baptist Church and volunteered at the local library.
She joins her brother, John Jr., and her parents in heaven.
She is survived by her loving husband, Frank; sister, Janice Cavalli; two daughters, Cindy Burright and Donna Miller; and Frank’s three children. She was also grandmother to 17 children and great-grandmother to two children.
Donations in Mrs. Andruski’s name may be made to the Payson Public Library, 328 N. McLane Rd., Payson, AZ 85541.
