(Jenny) Lulinski, and Amanda (Phil) Summers; her grandchildren, Nolan, Ava, and Sarah Summers, Gabe and Zoe Lulinski; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and many friends and co-workers. Marianne was also a very proud second mother to numerous foreign exchange students over the years, Samuele Virgili (Italy), Akira Ulrich (Switzerland), Bjarne Mehrtens (Germany), Cedric Desneux (Belgium), and Liam Barre (Paris).

Marianne is preceded in death by her son Matthew “Laz” Lulinski; her brother John Adamski II; her parents, John and Martha (nee Zelasko) Adamski; her niece Jill Lewis; as well as many other loved ones.

Marianne was a beautiful wife and a truly devoted mother.  She was graciously smart and spent a lifetime encouraging young minds to embrace an education.  She held a Bachelors of Science degree from DePaul University, a Masters of Arts degree from DePaul and several teaching certificates. She was a facilitator, counselor, and assistant principal at Grissom and Tonti schools in the Chicago School District. She is loved by many and will be missed by all who knew her.
