Marian E. Lash –

Brighton, MI/Bremerton, WA

Her Legacy…Marian E. Lash, 89, passed away peacefully in Bremerton, WA on August 31, 2021. Born to Russel and Agnes Schoch in Oakley, Michigan on April 1, 1932, Marian was the fifth of seven children.  She spent her early years on a farm and was proud of her small-town heritage. She graduated from Baker College in Flint in 1952, during which time she met, and later married, George Lash of Cleveland, Ohio. They married on June 6, 1953 and had six children. Marian was a pillar of strength for her children, managing the family throughout her husband’s career with an international business during the 1960’s, which required assignments around the globe.  She later worked for the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), Habitat for Humanity, and KSI Kitchen & Bath. Blessed with the ‘gift of gab’, she made friends easily and was fiercely loyal.  She also had a heart of gold, especially for young children. Marian loved to dance, travel, and spend time with friends and family.  She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

Her Family…Marian will be missed by her brother Dale (Hazel) Schoch; her six children, Mike (Hope) Lash, Pam (Jeff) Rademaker, Sue (JR) Slayton, Alan (Betty) Lash, Jill (Ray) Berrier, Judy (Mike) Cieslak; 13 grandchildren, and nine great grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Russel and Agnes, her sisters Frances, Ruth and Lucille, and her brothers William and Russel, Jr.
