Mary Eva (Marion) Clouston, 88, passed away peacefully on January 30, 2011 at Maple View East Care Center, Bismarck.

Marion was born in Mandan on Christmas Eve, 1922 to Henry and Anna (Hoffman) Lantz. She was raised and educated in Mandan. On October 31, 1942 Marion married her sweetheart, Kenneth W. Clouston. In 2005, Kenneth preceded her in death after 62 years of marriage. Both often said they felt blessed that all four of their children chose to build their lives and raise their own families in Mandan. Their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren say they’re grateful to have witnessed the beautiful love story Marion and Kenneth shared for more that six decades.
Marion very much enjoyed hobbies such as sewing, reading, and crocheting, but even more so, loved to spend time with family and friends having fun. Many summers were spent camping and fishing with the people she cared about. She was a very good bowler and she and Kenneth loved to “cut a rug”, especially square dancing. As a lifetime member of the VFW auxiliary she held many offices in the organization. Marion and Kenneth enjoyed 4-H with their children and served as group leaders for many years. After their kids “left the nest” they opened their home to foster children which was a blessed experience for the entire family.
Marion is survived by her four children, two sons, Kenneth R. (Gail) and Gene (Betty Lou); two daughters, Kay (Steve) Markel and Bette Jo (Mark) Caya, all of Mandan; eleven grandchildren; seventeen great grandchildren; and one sister, Vivian (Ted) Barth, Center, ND.
Marion was preceded in death by her parents; husband; brothers, Carl and Frank Lantz; and sisters, Rose Clark, Magdlyn Hatzenbihler, and Irene Schaffer.
