Marilyn “Mimi” Leong

July 22, 1939 — February 6, 2022

Marilyn “Mimi” Leong (nee Kurtz), of St. Charles, Missouri, passed away Sunday, February 6, 2022, at the age of 82. Beloved wife of the late Eddie R. Leong; cherished daughter of the late Edward G. and Dolores Kurtz. Devoted mother of Mark K. Leong, Suzanne Vandegriffe, and John Leong; loving grandmother of Amy (David Lawrence) Aquino, and Kayla (Brandi Schoenberg) Aquino; treasured great grandmother of Andrew Aquino, Madelyn Lawrence, Ava Lawrence, and Owen Lawrence; dear sister of Barbara (the late Louis) Hoffmeyer, Bunny (John) Siesener, Michael (Karen) Kurtz, and Shelly (Michelle Frank) Kurtz.  

 Marilyn was a wonderful homemaker for her family. She was a member of St. Cletus for 24 years and taught Sunday School at Our Lady of Loretto, St. Cletus, and St. Pius X. Marilyn was an excellent teacher, had great ideas, and worked very hard. All of the students just loved her. 

 Marilyn was an avid book reader and was involved in book studies. She liked mysteries, drama novels, and civil war stories.  She and her book club gals enjoyed trading books with each other and going to the library for more. Marilyn loved to watch TV. Some of her favorite shows were Law & Order, Chicago Fire, and NCIS. She also enjoyed playing games on her computer, such as Words with Friends, and Solitaire.  

 Marilyn liked to travel, and some of her fondest memories were from adventures to Europe, Canada, and her all-time favorite New Orleans. She especially loved going to the “clubhouse” with her friends. In her younger years, she enjoyed camping all around the U.S. with her family.  

Marilyn was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Memorials may be made in Marilyn's name to Cardinal Glennon Children's Research Hospital
