Marylee Olivia Lang
Fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church, she departed this life to be with the Lord on December 1st2018. Beloved wife of the late Robert Lang, dear mother of Steve Lang, dear mother-in-law of Debi Lang, dear aunt of Reverend Philip Danaher, Laura Badgley and James Danaher. Her parents, Adolph and Olivia Curotto, her sister Anne Danaher and brother-in-law Walter Danaher preceded her in death.
Marylee was a trailblazer. Well-educated, she graduated from Fontbonne University during a time when few women had this option. She was one of the first flight attendants back in the day when it was glamorous and exciting. She traveled the world and loved to explore her Italian heritage.
Marylee was a dedicated wife and loving mother. Faith in God was paramount in her life. She belonged to St. Claire of Assisi parish for over 40 years where she attended mass daily. Marylee was very generous to those in need, supporting a host of charities and organizations. She was the inspiration for many though she would never accept credit.

Steve and Debi….Please know that my thoughts are with you. Your mother will be missed but never forgotten. She was my daughters “secret” aunt because she was like a sister to me! I take comfort in knowing that you were with her in her final years. I cherish the many years that I was privileged to have been her friend. She was wonderful. I loved her.

Please accept my condolence on the loss of your dear loved one. What gave me comfort was what the Bible says at John 5 : 28-29 a beautiful promise we will see our love ones again. May God of tender mercies comfort you during this sadness.2corinthians 1 : 3 and 4.
