   CASHTON - Marion Louise Amundson, age 70, of Cashton, WI, passed away on Saturday, April 13, 2024 at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse, WI of unknown medical conditions that could not be resolved. Born on August 8, 1953, in Sparta, Wisconsin to Adron and Winifred (Jones) Littlejohn, Marion’s life was characterized by her unwavering faith and her devotion to family.

   Marion’s journey began in the town of Sparta, where she grew up surrounded by her loving family. She was a proud graduate of Sparta High School and went on to dedicate nearly four decades of service to Northern Engraving in Sparta, where she formed many lasting friendships and was respected for her work ethic and kindness. While also working at Northern Engraving she spent many dedicated hours helping on the family farm.  Her dedication helped her kids be involved in many extra activities where she also spent many hours on the bleachers cheering them on.

   In Cashton, Wisconsin, Marion found her soulmate, Randy Amundson, at a dance.  They had a wonderful life with 52 years of love, happiness, and laughter 

despite the obstacles during their journey.  Their union was blessed with three children: Jeremy, partnered with Jennifer Meyer, of Cashton, WI. Jennifer, married to David Hiscock of Riverview, FL; and Candice of Sparta, WI; Marion’s role as a grandmother was one she cherished deeply, and she showered her seven grandchildren, Dusty, Jamin, Devon, Makenzie, Carter, Caleb, and Kadyn, with love and affection.

   Marion was the heart of her extensive family and survived by her siblings Martha Davenport of Sparta, WI, Marie Gutzmer of Madison, WI, Margaret (Bill) Suhr of Montgomery, AL, Adrienne Howe of Cedar Grove, NJ, Mary (Larry) Johnson of Sumter, SC, and Myrna Quist of Necedah, WI. Her family was a source of immense pride and joy, and she was a beloved figure among her brothers-in-laws, sisters-in-laws, nieces, and nephews.

   Marion was preceded in death by her parents, Adron and Winifred; a grandson, Dustin Amundson; sister Sally Cheek; brothers, Ed, Warren, Bill, and Bob Littlejohn; Brother in laws Maurice Cheek and Donny Quist; father and mother-in-law, Melvin (Thelma) Amundson.

   A faithful member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Cashton, Marion’s commitment to her faith was evident in her service as church president during its centennial celebration. Her leadership and grace during this time left a lasting impact on her church community.

   Marion’s zest for life extended to her many interests. She was an accomplished crocheter and constantly seeking out new arts and crafts to rope Randy into helping with.  She was  never afraid to share her perspective and viewpoints when various tasks and projects were tackled around the farm. Randy has many fond memories of the sometimes colorful discussions that went in many directions while they found an agreeable solution.

Recently, Marion had embraced the joy of rekindling old friendships, cherishing the memories and making new ones.
