Marlys Arline Nelson, age 87 of Buffalo, MN, passed away on February 1, 2023 at Havenwood of Buffalo.

Marlys was born the daughter of Oliver & Ida (Holland) Enger on September 8, 1935 in Minneapolis, MN.

Marlys raised her family in Buffalo, MN and after worked for many years as a baker at Holmquist’s Grocery Store.

For enjoyment Marlys loved to spend time in her flower gardens and enjoyed the birds that would come and visit her feeders.  She spent time reading her Kindle, watching murder mysteries, doing crosswords and she and Jim liked their trips to the casino.  Marlys was also a basketball fan, watching the MN Timberwolves and the MN Lynx.

But Marlys found the greatest joy in the time spent with her family.  The memories made with her children and grandchildren will be forever treasured by all who knew her.

The family would like to thank the staff at Havenwood of Buffalo and the hospice staff for the love and care shown to Marlys during this time.

Marlys is survived by her children, Cheryl (Jim) Eben, James (Brenda) Nelson, Craig (Annie) Nelson, Debbie Howell and Kim Einck; grandchildren, Michael, Brittany, Jeremiah, Jimmy, Melissa, Breanne, Christy, Brittany, Amber, Jimmy, Lisa, Andrew, Matthew, CJ, Jesse, Megan, Spencer, Charlie, Logan; numerous great-grandchildren; and many other family and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents; the love of her life, James A. Nelson; son-in-laws, Mike Howell & Brad Einck; siblings, Kenton, Wally, Sanford, Phyllis & Gary “Butch”.
