Marian was born on the family farm in Anita, Iowa on August 7, 1923, to Johnie Jacob and Alvah Pearl (Beel) Heck.  The family moved to Brady, Nebraska when Marian was 13, so she attended school in Gothenburg and graduated from Elm Creek High School in 1941. After high school, Marian worked in North Platte as a nurse at St. Mary's Hospital.

On March 17, 1946, Marian married Orvylle Adolphus Rosenblad in North Platte.  They lived in North Platte then moved to Sutherland, Nebraska for a while before returning to North Platte.  After Orvylle died in 1967 Marian married Harold Lincoln Rosenblad on January 1, 1969, at the First Christian Church in North Platte. She and Harold lived on a farm north of Hershey, Nebraska and he later died in 1983.   Marian then had a hog farm for seven years before she sold the farm in 2005 and returned to North Platte where she has lived ever since.

Marian had been a member of First Christian Church in North Platte, Hershey United Methodist Church, and most recently she belonged to Valley Christian Church.  Marian liked gardening and had been a member of garden clubs since 1970 and was a past member of Hershey Garden Belles and Spade and Hope Garden Club in North Platte.  She was also a very good seamstress who liked to sew things for the kids when they were young and went on to make beautiful formal gowns and specialty items.  She even did the most beautiful embroidery and cross stitching pieces up until she had trouble with her eyesight.

Brooklynne Cheyanne Gydesen  (1994 - 2019)

Brooklynne Cheyanne Gydesen was born on October 5, 1994 in North Platte,Nebraska.  She died suddenly on December 20, 2019.  Brooklynne entered God's Kingdom with her son, Zayden Reign, who was due to be born on February 14, 2020.  Her biggest and most important achievement in life was being a mother.  She was devoted to Nixxon Amos and Sawyer Sage, her three-year-old twins, and anxiously anticipated meeting her third child, Zayden.

Brooklynne was baptized at St. John's Lutheran Church in Curtis, Nebraska in November 1994.  She was confirmed at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Elwood, Nebraska in May 2007.  She spent from age 2 to 16 living in Elwood, a brief time in Oconto, Nebraska in 2010, and then in Culbertson, Nebraska for part of 2011.  She moved to Curtis, Nebraska with her family in August of 2011.  She graduated from Medicine Valley High School in 2013.  She was a class speaker at her graduation, which gave her great joy.  She never met a stranger and she formed strong friendships everywhere she went.

Brooklynne married Cooper Lee Gydesen of Elwood, Nebraska on June 29, 2013 in Curtis, Nebraska.  She graduated from Joseph's College of Beauty, earning her cosmetology license in 2014.  She worked in different hair salons in Keraney and Holdrege, but always had her heart set on having children.  She lost one unborn baby in 2015.  She became pregnant with triplets, and became a momma on June 9th, 2016 to twins, Nixxon and Sawyer, after losing one of the triplets.

She was so proud of her children.  When she wasn't working hard caring for folks at the Elwood Care Center and Assisted Living in Elwood, or making breakfast and lunch for the students at Medicine Valley Public Schools, she was playing Play-doh and taking pictures of Nixxon and Sawyer.  She worked at the Elwood Care Center from 2017 until the time of her death.  She also worked as the "Lunch Lady' at Medicine Valley Public Schools in 2019.

Brooklynne has also just passed her first nursing class and State Boards for her Certified Nursing Assistant License.  She was so very happy, and so very proud of herself.  She planned to accept a scholarship to start her path toward becoming a Registered Nurse in the summer of 2020.

Brooklynne is survived by her husband, Cooper; children Nixxon and Sawyer; her father, Gary (Maria) Doyle of Callaway, Nebraska; her mother, Melanie (Shawn) Standiford of Curtis, Nebraska; siblings: Levi (Amber) Doyle and children Abel and Zax of Callaway, Nebraska, Karni (Stephan) Vath and Alexander of Grand Island, Nebraska, Lukas Doyle of Kearney, Nebraska, Wryleigh Doyle, Sophia Doyle, Louie Doyle and Viavanna Doyle of Callaway, Nebraska, and Houston Standiford of Curtis, Nebraska; step-siblings Kael Standiford of Curtis, Nebraska, Wyatt Standiford of Lincoln, Nebraska, Noah Standiford of Culbertson, Nebraska, and Aubrey Wagner of Lincoln, Nebraska.  Brooklynne is also survived by her Grandpa, Louie (Janis) Nutt of Wellfleet, Nebraska, Grandparents Robert and Virgene Doyle of Maywood, Nebraska and Gary and Mary Elliot of Vancouver, Washington; plus numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and so many loved friends who touched her life, and those she touched.

Brooklynn and Zayden were proceeded in death by Brooklynne's Grandma, Linda Nutt, and two of her unborn children.
