     Marian S. Fattig, 83, of Brady, passed away Jan. 15, at Golden Living Center in Cozad. She was born Dec. 18, 1929, in Brady to Edwin and Edith Brown Hoaglund.

     After her own children left home, Marian studied Child Development at University of Nebraska-Kearney, and often babysat.
     Survivors include her three sons, Roger (Melanie) Fattig and Mark Fattig, all of North Platte, and Bruce (Ann) Fattig, of Kearney; three daughters, Susan (John Grasser), of Chevy Chase, Md., Sharon (Cliff) Johnson, of Wellingborough, England, and Carol (Barry) Rich, of Brady; 15 grandchildren, Elissa, Crystal, Ethan, Brandon, Lauren, Sarah, Ted, Katherine, Eric, John Pierce "JP," Elisabeth, Cody, Kirsten, Caelea and Lilian; 12 great-grandchildren, Isaac, Jonah, Kyrie, Carly, Chloe, Dale, Madden, Adelyn, Steven, Beatrix, Emmett, and Rylan; and other family.
