On the morning of Sunday February 11, Marion Alice Senica 79, of LaSalle, earned her Angel Wings as she entered the gates of Heaven where she was reunited with her loving husband Ron. Just as she would have wished, she died peacefully at her home with her children by her side.
Mrs. Senica was born on March 1, 1938 in LaSalle to Harry and Dorothy (Fisher) Bierbom. She married Ronald Senica on September 10,1955 and they began their journey together as husband and wife. Marion was the proud mother of six wonderful children, whom she would work closely with throughout her life with the various business ventures that the family would take on. Along with her husband and children, Marion was a key factor to the family’s successes and contributions in the growth and development of the Illinois Valley by farming, developing a number of land and subdivision developments, founding Senica Interstate Towing, Country Style Hair Salon, Senica Appliance, Senica’s Heating and Air Conditioning and their most current endeavor of building Senica’s Oak Ridge Golf Course.
Marion enjoyed nothing more than spending time with her family and hearing the stories of their daily lives. She also loved to spend time in her garden and taking care of her flowers in her yard and at the golf course.
