Obituary for Marie Roxann Brunke

Marie Roxann Brunke (Chumack) passed away on July 9, 2020 in the early morning.

Marie was born to Roxann and Robert Chumack on March 26, 1958 as the second of five siblings: William Chumack, Gerald Chumack, Frederick Chumack and John Chumack. She is survived by her two daughters, Meghan Brunke and Emily Stefanic, as well as son-in-law Thomas Stefanic. Marie earned both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in mathematics and enjoyed a full career as an Actuarial Consultant. She had a finely cultivated taste for life's amusements and reveled in the arts, cuisine, libations and laughs. While life took her to many of the world's nooks and crannies, she was delighted to spend the last few decades in her beloved Michigan.

Marie’s daughters will be hosting a memorial luncheon on Thursday, July 16, at Uptown Grille, 3100 E. West Maple Road, Commerce Township, Michigan 48390, from 10am to 2pm with a short service conducted virtually by Marie’s former pastor, Ruth Overdier. We would love to take this time to love and honor Marie’s memory and ask that gatherers please observe appropriate restrictions to avoid further loss and transmission of COVID during this difficult time.

Flowers are beautiful and Marie loved them. However, the family requests that in lieu of flowers charitable donations be made to organizations for which she had great passion. Marie had requested donations to Michigan Opera Theatre, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Detroit Opera House or the Detroit Zoo. Additionally, it was important to Marie to be able to donate organ and tissue to Gift of Life. Unfortunately, our family’s time spent living in England has precluded her the opportunity to do so. As such, her daughters would like to add Gift of Life Michigan to the list of charitable organizations accepting donations in Marie’s honor.
