Marianne Dean Dubois peacefully passed away on May 16th after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was known for her positive attitude and fighting spirit through it all. Marianne was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, teacher and friend.
Marianne was born in American Fork, Utah on March 31, 1945 to Mary and Owen Dean. She was the oldest of 10 children. She had close relationships with all of her siblings that she treasured her whole life.
Marianne met the love of her life, Kenneth R Dubois, and they were married and sealed eternally in the Salt Lake Temple on December 29th, 1966. They had 5 children together who all lived close by and Marianne's family was everything to her.
Marianne loved family, traveling, diet coke and fresh flowers. She loved her weekly lunch meetup with her "lunch bunch" right up until the end.
