Marian Ann Alich
Of Arlington Heights
Formerly of Bethlehem, PA 

Marian Ann Alich was born December 18, 1926 in Nazareth, PA to Frank and Mary Virginia (nee Vetovitz) Alich.  She passed away September 1, 2017 peacefully at her home in Arlington Heights.

Marian attended St. Lukes Hospital School of Nursing in Bethlehem, PA.  She later moved to Chicago and obtained her baccalaureate degree from Loyola university and her masters degree from the University of California in San Francisco. She was employed at the Cook County Department of Public Health for 30 years. First as a public health nurse then later retired as a public health nurse supervisor. Marian was a skilled clinician and practitioner and demanded excellence of her staff. Marian loved her work in public health and cared passionately for the families that were seen by CCDPH. Marian was deeply religious and was known for her spirituality and closeness to God and The Blessed Virgin Mary. Marian developed an extensive prayer list to which people constantly added their names. She inquired about how each and every person she was praying for was doing. Marian loved the opera and was a long-time attendee. Marian liked to travel and enjoyed good food and new experiences. Which unfortunately diminished in her last years due to her illness.

She will be sadly missed by her brother Bill (Norma) Alich; her niece in Pennsylvania and many friends.

Marian was predeceased by her brother Frank Alich; her long-time partner Edward Balthazar and by her parents.
