Marilyn Kay Koski

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Marilyn Kay Koski, 71, of Joliet passed away peacefully on Nov. 7, 2018 surrounded by her loving family. She was born on Aug. 12, 1947 to Flossie and Matt Kujala. She was the fourth of six children. 

Marilyn was raised around the Fox area, graduating the 8th grade at the Fox School and high school in Red Lodge. She was her dad’s right hand man, milking cows and stacking hay. She was much happier working the farm than going to school. Marilyn was known for her beautiful singing and yodeling and sharing that love with her brothers and sisters. She was proud of her Finn heritage. 

Spring was Marilyn’s favorite time of year and Christmas was her favorite holiday. She loved fast, loud cars and was known by most of the Montana Highway Patrol in her younger days. Above all else, family was her source of happiness. Marilyn worked as a nurse for many years specializing in Alzheimer’s care. 

In 1965 she married Hanly Loyning. They had two children. In 1987 she married the love of her life, Bob Koski. They lived in Joliet where they had many happy memories. In 2004 her grandson was born and she thought he hung the moon. 

Marilyn is survived by her loving husband, Bob; her children: Amber (Bobby) Hogg, Carl (Denise) Loyning; two stepsons: Shawn and Mike Koski; foster son Bruce Weimer; her shining light, grandson: Colton; and siblings: Carolyn (Jerry) Cook, Jimmy (Laurie) Kujala; and many nieces and nephews. She was met in heaven by her mom and dad; sisters: Mabel and Gladys; and brother, Bob.

Memorial Services will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday Dec. 2 at Joliet Baptist Church. 

Cremation & Funeral Gallery is handling the arrangements. Condolences may be left at www.cfgbillings.com.
