May 13, 1923 — February 26, 2021

Marny Lou Feulner (Burbey) passed peacefully in Dousman, Wisconsin on February 26, 2021 at age 97.

Marny was born in Oconto County, Wisconsin, the eldest of the four children born to Inez and Prosper Burbey. On November 22, 1945, Marny graduated from the Milwaukee County School of Nursing and began her RN nursing career. Some years later, she trained as a Nurse Anesthetist, and practiced in the field for several years. In 1955, as a widow, Marny met her future husband of 62 years, Robert C. Feulner in Milwaukee while working as a nurse, supporting her 3 children. They married on June 7, 1958 and thereafter made Waukesha their home.

Marny was a dedicated wife, mother, and homemaker. Marny was generous, thoughtful and quick-witted. Marny’s greatest loves were her family, friends, books, and traveling the world. Marny treasured her homes in Waukesha, on North Lake (“the cottage”), and later on Lac Labelle. Marny was a long-term member and volunteer for the Waukesha Service Club with focus on the Waukesha Memorial Hospital Gift Shop and Thrift Shop. Through the years Marny also worked as a nurse volunteer and was a member of various clubs and organizations in Waukesha County.

Marny is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Robert C. Feulner, M.D., and children Mary Williams of Long Beach, CA, Robert Williams of Spokane, WA, Patricia Feulner (Kim Berg) of Mound, MN, and Karen Feulner (Rene-Didier Emch) of Vancouver, WA. Marny is survived by 7 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brothers Michael (Judy) Burbey of WI and David (Suzanne) Burbey of MD. Marny was preceded in death by her daughter Nancy Leary of Wauwatosa, WI, former spouse Charles Eugene Williams, brother John Burbey, and parents.

The family extends a sincere thank you to all of the caregivers, staff, and all who helped and comforted Marny.
