Marian was the daughter of Paul and Helen (Wilton) Hayner. She was born on August 16, 1917 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In the 1920 Census, Marian is living with her mother and father in the West Allis Ward 3 of Milwaukee. Helen Hayner died on October 8, 1920 when Marian was just three years old. Paul remarried Ethel Rose Cook. By the 1930 Census, Marian is living with her father and stepmother, Ethel. Her father, Paul, was a police officer.
Marian’s school picture from her senior year at West Allis High School in 1935. She married Paul Guenther who was from LaPorte Indiana. He attended college at the University of Wisconsin. I do not find a marriage record for them but they were likely married on Wisconsin. Paul and Marian had two daughters; Helen and Donna. They moved to Lakewood, Ohio, near Cleveland, where Paul was a mathematics professor at Case Western University.
Marian died on June 6, 1991. She is buried in Lakewood Park Cemetery next to her husband who died seventeen years earlier on April 29, 1974.
Rest in Peace, Marian!
