Obituary

Minnick Funeral Chapel in Dodge is handling the arrangements for the family.

Marlyn (Van Dyke) Hunke was born on September 25, 1940 in Humphrey, NE to Solanus and Stella (Ottis) Van Dyke. She grew up in the Cornlea, NE area and graduated from Humphrey St. Francis High School in 1958. She was employed with the Public Power District prior to her marriage.

On September 3, 1960, she was united in marriage to Eugene Hunke at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Cornlea, NE. They have resided in Dodge since that time where they raised their family. Marlyn spent most of her life as a full time mom and homemaker. She enjoyed cooking, baking, gardening and sewing. The quilts and blankets she created will be cherished forever. Her homemade rolls and chocolate chip cookies were a big hit at every holiday and the grandchildren always fought over who got the last roll. Family meant everything to her. After their children were grown, Gene and Marlyn enjoyed many wonderful trips together.
