Obituary of Marvel J Thomas

Marvel Joyce Thomas, age 86, passed away on October 8, 2020 at Morrow Home Community in Sparta, WI. Marvel was born on May 20, 1934 in Tomahawk to Martin and Marjorie (Schrofe) Charbarneau. She was a waitress at Pine Hills Country Club in Sheboygan for many years before moving to Colorado Springs where she was employed at the Lettuce Head Restaurant. No matter where she worked, she was everybody’s favorite waitress. She had an interesting life, from narrowly escaping death in the 1948 Tomahawk Tornado, through raising 8 children across good times and bad. Marvel is survived by five children, Roxanne Holliday of Hemet CA, Cheryl (Earl) Wilsing of O’Fallon, IL, Jacqualine (Stephen) Budgell of Murfreesboro TN, Deborah (David) Hojnacki of Tomah WI, and Gary Thomas of North Glen CO and sisters, Elaine Pierce and Patsy (Gary) Thomas from Tomahawk Wi. She is also survived by 12 grandchildren, Michael (Brandi) Derrick, Julia Johnson, Brandon (SheaLyn) Holliday, David (Heather) Wilsing, Adam (Angela) Wilsing, Matthew Thill, Mark (Kristen) Ferge, Elizabeth Minneau, Steve (Ashleigh) Campbell, Bonnie (Michael) Minnillo, Nicole Beckjordan, Kayla Hojnacki, and Kaylee Hojnacki, 18 great grandchildren and one great-great grandson. Fur family members, Ziggy, Kona and Franklin held a special place in her heart. Multiple cousins, nieces, nephews, and family members were extremely close to Aunt Marvel. Marvel was preceded in death by 3 children, Jack, Maurice, and Steve Campbell, four sisters, Darlene Charbarneau, June Buschmann, Bonnie Elliott, Mary Grams and two brothers, LeRoy and Eldon Charbarneau. Marvel enjoyed fishing, camping, reading, ceramics, collecting earrings and snowmen. Marvel’s favorite color was purple and her favorite drink in her younger years was Brandy Old Fashion, a Wisconsin favorite. Marvel will be buried next to her family in Greenwood Cemetery. The family will have a Celebration of Life on her birthday May 20th 2021 in Tomahawk WI. The family would like to thank Morrow Home Community staff for the personalized care and compassion they showed Marvel and her family during her stay at the facility.
