Marianne "Mimi" Wray - 81

Chicago Heights, Illinois

Marianne “Mimi” Wray nee Hetzel. Age 81. Longtime Chicago Heights and Park Forest resident. Graduate of Rich East High School. Marianne was a fixture at the Prairie State financial aid office for over 20 years, making lifelong friends and helping countless students pursue their dream of a college education.  Mimi, as she was affectionately called, was fiercely proud of the family that she and her late husband Mike built.  She could talk for hours about her daughters or any of her 8 grandchildren and had a special and unique bond with each one of them. Whether she was watching them play in a sporting event or paying out for the A’s on their report card, she was a fixture in each of their lives and will never be replaced.  Mimi loved the water and regularly vacationed along the Michigan coastline, with Grand Haven holding a special place in her heart.  She was always up for an adventure and spending time with those she loved.  She will be missed. Wife for 30 years of the late Michael C. Wray. Mother of Laura (David) Berg and Kelly (Greg) Castady.
