Marianne, the daughter of John and Mary (Jiracek) Kratochvil was born February 6, 1926 in New Prague,
MN. She attended New Prague High School and the College of St. Catharine’s in St. Paul. She married
Stanley Peroutka on August 12, 1944 at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in New Prague, which was built
by her Father John, founder of Kratochvil Construction. Stanley preceded her in death on February 8,
2005. After their marriage they lived in Morristown for 30 years and then they moved to Faribault in
Marianne was employed at the Morristown Creamery as well as Thrifty White’s, Woolworth’s and
Montgomery Ward’s in Faribault. She was a very meticulous housekeeper and always had extra cookies
in the “cookie jar”. Marianne enjoyed reading, crocheting, playing cards (especially bridge & cribbage),
playing the organ, and walking. However, her greatest enjoyment came from being with her family and
she cherished the time spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Although she did not want
this revealed, she also truly enjoyed going to Mystic Lake with her friends, who called themselves the
“Prayer Group” ladies. Marianne was a lifetime member of CCW, Hospital and KC Auxiliary and a
charter member of the Sacred Heart Choir.
She is survived by two children, daughter Mary Joanne (Joanie) and Darwin Rieck of Edmonds, WA and
son Michael and Paula Peroutka of Faribault, MN, five grandchildren Craig (Molly) Peroutka,

grandchildren Grant, Will, Anna Peroutka (Craig & Molly); Jacob Heavner (Stephanie & Andy); Logan,
