Marvis Ione Glick

Age 92 of Lakeville MN, formerly Mankato, passed away December 14, 2020.  Marvis and her twin sister, Mavis were born March 3, 1928 in Lake Lillian, Minnesota on the family farm.  Some of Marvis’ favorite things growing up were roller skating, ice skating, skiing behind their horses or their car, playing the piano, dancing and cheerleading.  She was given her first pair of skis when she was 8.  She graduated from Atwater High School in 1946.  After graduation she and Mavis worked on their family farm.  In 1954 the twins moved to Minneapolis and worked at Northwestern National Bank until 1964.  While living in Minneapolis Marvis met Forrest playing volleyball with the TCLYA.  They were married June 6, 1964 and moved to Mankato with Arthur where Forrest began his career at MSU. Marvis was a true homemaker in every sense of the word. She had many interests and hobbies and was always up for a good time and happy to try new things. She loved to refinish furniture, travel, play the piano and organ and take family ski trips to Lutsen. In her younger years, Marvis was an active member of the Faculty Wives, Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Meals on Wheels and Echo Food Shelf volunteer.  She also enjoyed working at the MSU Bookstore for buy back and rush and she loved being a grandmother. In 2016 she left her beloved Mankato and moved to Lakeville to be closer to her family and Mavis.  Marvis is survived by Reginald (Karin) Glick of Lakeville MN, Jennifer (Jeffrey) Huss, of Eden Prairie MN, Arthur (Kathleen) Glick, of Minneapolis MN.  Grandchildren Charles and John Glick, Afton and Olin Huss, Samantha, KaylaAnne and Zachary Glick and many nieces and nephews.  Preceded in death by husband Forrest, twin sister Mavis (Duane) Timerson, brother Clinton, (June) Oslund, sister Jeanette (Andrew) Linden, and parents Clarence and Florence Oslund.  A service to celebrate Marvis will be held in the spring.  Our family would like to thank the wonderful people in Mankato that were so kind and helpful to Marvis and Forrest, especially in their later years.

We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Mavis was one of the first to greet us in the neighborhood when we moved to Ridgely Road.

What a great neighbor to have had. Sending our deepest sympathy.
