She had the soul of a gypsy, the spirit of a hippie and the heart of an angel.
Marylu Sauer of Madison passed away unexpectedly on May 5th, 2018. Marylu was born in Prairie Du Chien, WI on August 12th, 1956 and was the daughter of Jerry and Inez Sauer. She was preceded in death by her parents, Jerry and Inez Sauer, her brother and sister-in-law David and Piper Sauer of CA and her sister Frances Treinen of WI.
Marylu was born in Prairie du Chien, WI, then moved to Madison where she attended St. Patrick's School and Madison Central High School. After high school, Marylu traveled and lived in various states including Alaska, Olympia, Washington, San Diego, CA, Eagle Nest and Taos, NM, and then moved back to Madison, WI to be closer to family and friends.
Marylu is survived by her nieces; Linda Bushee, Marcia Secor (Dave), great-niece Nikki Bushee, brother-in-law Don Treinen, nephews Josh Sauer and Montgomery Conley (Nicole) and great niece Bella Conley, several cousins and an amazing abundance of close friends.
Her loved ones knew her as a free spirit who loved nature, camping, swimming, hiking, animals, selling her treasures at flea markets and most importantly spending quality time laughing with her friends and family. The world was a better place with her in it and she will be deeply missed by all who were graced by her laughter and spirit.
