Marian “MeMe” Bobolink, 68 years, began her spiritual journey on November 28th, 2015 from Sanford Hospital in Bemidji, Minnesota. Marian was born on January 2nd, 1947 in Battle Point, the daughter of William and Ima (White) Bobolink.

MeMe was a reserved woman who quite often kept to herself. She was a very quiet person but once she got to know someone she enjoyed talking and laughing with them. MeMe would often be found at the Palace playing bingo, which she loved, and the machines. When she wasn’t at the casino, you could find her sitting by a window, enjoying the outdoors or visiting with her great-nieces and nephews. She will forever be missed.

The family that MeMe has been reunited with are her parents; William and Ima, sister; Mary Ann Bobolink, special sister; Caroline Monroe, special niece; Janelle Jack, numerous uncles, aunts and other relatives.

She leaves behind her son Warren Bobolink of Bena, special daughters; Jenny Dick of Bena and Sarrell Jack of Cass Lake, brother; Bruce Bobolink of Bena, sisters; Gloria (Duane) Beaudreu and Joann Staples both of Cass Lake, one grandson; Andy Jourdain of Red Lake, special niece; Barb Dick, special nephew; Aaron Dick, many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

An overnight wake for MeMe will begin at 6:00 p.m., Tuesday, December 1st and continue until her 1:00 p.m. funeral service on Wednesday, December 2nd all being held at the Sugar Point Community Center. Father George Ross will officiate. Pallbearers for MeMe will be William White, Kenny Staples, Jayme Finn, Sam Kingbird, Markell Whitefeather and Donavan Staples. Her honorary pallbearers are all her nieces, great nieces and her friends from the Palace Bingo Casino. Inurnment will be in the Battle Point Cemetery at Battle Point at a later date.
