Marian Elton was born November 28,1932 in Meyer, Iowa to Herman and Florentine (Thome) Eisterhold. She attended primary school in Meyer, Iowa and secondary school in Stacyville,Iowa before moving with her family to Austin, Minnesota where she graduated from Austin High School in 1950. Following high school, she attended the Northwestern Hospital School of Nursing, receiving her degree in 1953. She met the love of her life, Burnham (Rocky) Elton while attending nursing school, and they were married May 14,1955 at St. Kevin’s Catholic Church in Minneapolis. Marian and Rocky lived in Minneapolis following their wedding and Marian attended and graduated from anesthesia school while working at Northwestern Hospital in 1955.


Rocky and Marian traveled to several air force bases while Rocky was serving in the U.S. Air Force. Following that call of duty, Rocky and Marian moved to Fergus Falls, Minnesota until 1963 in which Rocky and Marian then eventually made their home in Bloomington, Minnesota where they have lived the last 59 years.


Marian took great pride in her family and was a supportive, loving wife and a wonderful mother. She kept a meticulous house and enjoyed tending to the needs of her husband and children. She was an avid reader and gardener and was passionate about watching sports programs on television. She was an exceptionally talented seamstress and sewed many beautiful garments through the years. She was a dedicated member of St. Richard’s Catholic Church for 59 years. Marian will be remembered for her kindness, generosity and graciousness and will be dearly missed by her family, friends and neighbors.


She is survived by her sons, John (Joan) of St. Cloud, Thomas (Mollibeth) of Eagle River, Alaska; her grandchildren Melody (Justin), Mira (Jim) and Ted; Andrew (Jessica), Elizabeth (Scott); Maggie, Sarah (Guy); nine great grandchildren; sisters Dorothy (Ed), Sue (Elwood), Linda, (Deane), brother John (Linda); and sister-in-law Joanne Dahlin.
