On Jan. 13, 1945, Maryetta married Arthur M. Hylle at Calgary Baptist Church in Albert Lea. Arthur served in the United States Navy from 1942 to 1945. After Arthur’s time of service they made their home in Austin. Maryetta was a homemaker and mother to three children, two daughters and a son. Her greatest joy was spending time with her children, five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

When her children were young they had a cabin on Beaver Lake where they spent many fun filled years. Maryetta enjoyed square dancing, coffee parties with friends and Olsen family gatherings — especially the annual Olsen family reunions in Owatonna.

After Arthur’s death she moved to Minneapolis to be closer to her children.

She is preceded in death by her parents; 10 brothers and sisters; and her husband, Arthur, who died April 25, 2000.

Maryetta is survived by her children Paula R. Hylle of Roseville, Mark (Carla) Hylle of Anoka and Pam (Dave) Barnett of Alexandria; her grandchildren Erin (Ernesto) Figuera of St. Paul, Amanda (Paul) Mithun of Staples, Adam Barnett (Nicole) of Alexandria, Jason Hylle of Anoka and Leah Hylle of Anoka; and her great grandchildren Ava and Alex Figuera, Peyton and Maci Mithun and Elin and Cora Barnett.

A private memorial service for immediate family will take place.
