She held various jobs there, including contributing to the war effort making parts for airplanes. On May 11, 1943, she married her husband, Zygmunt Sakowski. In 1953 they moved to the Junction City area where they raised four children.
Marian enjoyed reading, sewing, gardening, cooking, baking and canning. She also made beautiful loomed rugs during the winter which she loved to share with family and friends. She loved nature and enjoyed long walks in the woods and berry picking. She shared that love with her children and grandchildren and they have fond memories of their time with her. She was also involved at the St. Michaelís Parish in Junction City as a member of the Ladies Alter Society for many years.
She is survived by two brothers, Edwin and Edward Migel; sons, Robert (Jacqui) Sakowski, Mount Horeb; Bill Sakowski, New Mexico; daughter, Kathy (Jim)Mansavage, Stevens Point and son, Mike (Renee) Sakowski, Brule, nine grandchildren; Cheryl (Jeremy) Nelson; Fr. Derek Sakowski; Eric and Alison Mansavage; Luke, David, Mark, Laura, and Sarah Sakowski and three great- grandchildren, Josiah, Eleanor and Annabelle Nelson.
Marian was preceded in death by her husband, Zygmunt, her parents, one brother Ben and sisters, Susan Gutowski, Agnes Wendlandt, and Ann Green.
