Marilee Petra (Brostad) Majerus was born on April 12, 1957 to Perry and Carlyce Brostad in Willmar, MN.   After moving to Albert Lea in 1972, she graduated from high school in 1975.  Soon after, she met Tony Majerus and married him on May 20, 1978.  Together, they had two daughters and one son.  

Marilee worked at Kwik Trip for 18 years, volunteered at the Mayo hospital gift shop, and was also a member of the Auxiliary.  She loved getting to know the community, and was always recognized for her friendly face, and kind heart.  

Marilee loved life; even when she was facing multiple health issues, she stayed strong.  She was able to visit Hawaii and Ireland with her loving daughters and frequently enjoyed board games with them.  She also had a special place in her heart for her many dogs throughout the years.

Marilee is survived by her husband Tony; daughters Natalie and Melissa; son Jonathan; grandchildren Devon, Aiden and Xander; siblings Kim (Phyllis) Brostad, Sherry (Ron) Arvidson, Denise Schultz, and Peggy Buechler; along with many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Marilee is preceded in death by her parents Perry and Carlyce Brostad; and brothers Cary and Dennis.

The family requests that any flowers sent to be free of lilies due to allergy issues.
