She was born December 3, 1930, in Muskegon Heights to the late Julius and Mary (Regeczi) Jacobs. Marvel married Theodore “Ted” Frein on September 6, 1952, in Muskegon. He passed away November 17, 2004.
She was employed at Grand Transformers for 24 years, retiring in 1992. Marvel was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and loved reading, gardening, ceramics, watching the Detroit Tigers and all college football games; but her greatest love was being a homemaker and doing things with her loving grandchildren.
She will lovingly be remembered by her family: Susan (Jerry) Zake, Bowling Green, Ohio; Cindy Reames, Newaygo, Mich.; Mary Beth (Pete) Sheffield, Grand Haven; Mark (Mary) Frein, Spring Lake; and Mike (Ruth) Frein, Spring Lake. Also surviving are 13 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren; and her sisters and brothers: Nancy (Dale) DuBois, Emily (Gary) Leyrer, David (Linda) Jacobs and John (Donna) Jacobs. She was preceded in death by her son, Brian Frein; and sisters; Loretta and Rosalie Jacobs, and Diane Molnar.
The Mass of Christian Burial will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday, September 13, 2017, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church with Father David Gross officiating. Friends are invited to meet the family one hour prior to the service.
