Marilyn June (Courtney) Jungman, born February 4, 1935, was called home to heaven Wednesday, December 16, 2020 in Mesa, Arizona. She was born to Clarence and Edna Courtney in Ottumwa, Iowa. Marilyn met the love of her life, Chuck, in 1953 at the University of Iowa. They worked together at Jungman Oil and raised their three children in Van Meter, Iowa. They were married for 66 wonderful years and fell asleep each and every night holding hands.
Marilyn led a very happy, active life filled with family, friends and an abundance of hobbies such as painting, crafting, traveling the world and riding Harleys with her beloved husband. She had a great sense of style and loved to entertain. She was an avid lover of all sports and never missed a chance to watch her favorite team the Iowa Hawkeyes.
She was an incredible mother, daughter, sister and wife. Family was everything to her and she was everything to her family. She will forever be remembered for her kind heart, sense of humor, and words of wisdom.
She is survived by her husband Chuck, children Dr. Douglas Jungman (Donna) of Bradenton FL, Dennis Jungman (Ann) of Fairfield PA, Debra Decker of Mesa AZ, grandchildren Adam Jungman (Erin), Bridget Harry (Matthew), Elise Pfeifer (Drew), Megan Buhrman (Zach), Courtney Morrison (Richard), Catie Van Cura (Robb) and great-grandchildren Ellie, Tellulah, Bronson and Evie. Marilyn is also survived by many friends and family whom she adored. We find comfort in knowing she has been reunited with her parents and siblings in heaven.
Marilyn will be laid to rest in Van Meter, Iowa. A celebration of her life will occur at a later date. In lieu of flowers we ask that you please cherish every day and hold the ones you love a little tighter in honor of Marilyn.
