Marianne Hatfield Obituary

Marianne H. Hatfield, 72 of Bristol, IN passed away on Saturday February 3, 2024 at her home surrounded by her family. Marianne was born on June 15, 1951 in Hamberg, Germany to Marko and Ruth Budisic, whom have both preceded her in death.  She married Eric Hatfield.

Marianne graduated from Goshen High School in 1969. She loved to be outside, whether it was gardening to make her home look beautiful or a simple stroll around the neighborhood. She enjoyed looking for special deals at yard sales, garage sales, tag sales and estate sales. She was very free spirited. She loved all animals, and she would enjoy feeding the racoons and they were always there to greet her. She closed her eyes for the last time on her favorite holiday, Groundhogs Day. She will be sadly missed.

Marianne is survived by her husband Eric Hatfield; children Tracy (Richard) Roberts of Bristol, IN., Jason (Tami) Budisic of Sarasota, FL., Ursula (Ken) McFarland of New Caney, TX; grandchildren Richard (Lauryen) Roberts, JR., Tyler (Adrianna) Roberts, Keegan Roberts, Donovan (Kelsey) Spitler, Nicolas Spitler, Halle Spitler, Bryce Spitler and Isabella Spitler and several great-grandchildren; and her sister Chris (Dave) Nelson of Frankfort, MI.
