Marian Oman, who was a much beloved mother, sister, friend, grandmother, and great-grandmother, went home to God on 06/27/15. She was preceded in death by her parents Leo and Helen Tigue, and ex-husband Virgil Oman. She is survived by sisters Marnette (Roland) Barthel and Delores (James) Fraki. Children: David Oman, Linea (Bob) Kirchner, Sandi (Paul) Fischer, Lyle (Vickie) Oman, Mary (Barrett) Sharp, and Donald Oman. Grandchildren: Justin (Emily) Oman, Angelica (Josh) Rohlfing, Evan Oman and fiance Aubrey, Eric Oman, Angela French, Jim Oman, Kelly Oman, Megan (Ryan) Lindsay, and Garrick Sharp; and two great grandchildren, Mike and Jack. Marian graduated in 1950 from Anoka Senior High School, then went on to nursing school for a year before marrying and moving to New York Mills. She raised 6 children on the Oman home farm until 1966 when the family moved back to Anoka where she worked at Federal Cartridge. She remained in Anoka until moving back to the New York Mills area in 1974. After the last child flew the coop, she went back to nursing school with her lifelong friend Arlene Beane, and graduated as an LPN in 1980, then went on to work at Wadena hospital for 25 years. After retiring, she loved her country life 'on the hill', hosting family get-togethers and enjoying raising vegetables and flowers until moving to a senior apartment in Detroit Lakes, MN, where she embarked on a new life with new friends. And she made many! Everyone loved Marian's wit, and her loving and generous nature. She will be sorely missed by all who passed through her life. Marian loved people, and made new friends where-ever she went. She kept her sense of humor until the end, and kept smiles on faces even as she was dying. She was a remarkable woman, who showed strength through the many trials in her life, and set a good example for her children and grandchildren, whom she loved with all of her heart. The family would love all who knew her to come and celebrate this wonderful woman's life. In lieu of flowers, it was Marian's request that donations be made to a hospice of your choice.
