Marilyn Sue Sasse

Sep 29, 1936 - Feb 24, 2024

Kansas City, MO

Marilyn Sue (Rader) Sasse, of Kansas City, Missouri, passed away February 24, 2024 at the age of 87. Marilyn was born in Kansas City, Missouri, on September 29, 1936. The fifth of six children born to Wilbur Rader, a World War I veteran, and his wife, Mabel (Hamarstrom) Rader, Marylin enjoyed a rich childhood surrounded by a large and close-knit family. Based on her many stories of growing up with three brothers, two sisters, and plenty of extended family nearby, her formative years rarely saw a dull moment. After graduating from Paseo High School in 1954, Marilyn married Charles Sasse, an employee of Kansas City Life Insurance Company, in 1956. Their first son, Craig, was born the next year, followed by a second son, Carl, in 1964. Marilyn and Charlie were married for over 67 years, up until Charlie’s death just this last month, in January of 2024. In the early years of their marriage, she dedicated herself primarily to raising their sons and holding down the fort while Charlie traveled for work. They lived in the same house in Raytown, Missouri, for nearly 38 years, within walking distance of Marilyn’s sister Joan and her family. Marilyn had many hobbies, such as getting together with friends to play bridge, doing crafts, hosting events, and celebrating holidays–complete with the most on-trend decorations–but few stand out so vividly as her love of film. Any movie that had come out after the silent era was likely one she had seen. Name it, and she could tell you the plot and who starred in it. She continued to keep up with the newest releases into her later years, but ultimately she favored old classics the most. It wasn’t uncommon to come over to her house to find Turner Classic Movies on in the background. She’d offer up a short commentary here and there, a tidbit she knew about that particular actor or actress, then return to the conversation. Marilyn possessed a forthright, unsentimental personality, yet she was deeply devoted to her family. She threw and attended regular functions with her aunts, uncles, siblings, sons, and their families. She took her grandchildren on outings to amusement parks and movies. Gifts were certainly her love language–not only did she excel at selecting the perfect gift for each person, but they were always painstakingly wrapped, with complicated bows and perfectly straight edges that would put even the most seasoned department store clerk to shame. She loved having grandchildren to spoil, and never passed up the opportunity to give them something to open at even the most mundane occasions throughout the year. But no gift she gave was more generous or more treasured throughout the years than her time, and her presence is profoundly missed. Marilyn was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Sasse; her parents, Wilbur Rader and Mabel (Hamarstrom) Rader; her brothers, Dean Rader, Jack Rader, and Dick Rader; and her sister, Doris (Rader) Anderson. Marilyn is survived by her sons, Craig (Jill) Sasse and Carl (Becky) Sasse; her grandchildren, Taylor (Richard) Newell, Caroline (Brent) Miller, Rachel (Owen) Staver, Paul Sasse, and Diane (Jeremy) Immer; her great-grandchildren, Charlotte Immer (16), Max Immer (12), Della Newell (4), Olivia Staver (3), Alice Miller (1), Simon Newell (1), and Emma Staver (10 months); and her sister, Joan (Rader) Erickson along with many nieces and nephews..
