Marianne O. Kobylenski, 61, of Emmitsburg, Maryland, died on Sunday, December 29, 2019 at Frederick Memorial Hospital following a brief illness.
Born May 11, 1958 in Scranton, PA, she was the daughter of Lucille (Heppler) O’Boyle of Emmitsburg and the late Adrian O’Boyle. She was the wife of Thomas A. Kobylenski.
Marianne spent more than twenty-five years in law enforcement, serving twenty-one of those years with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office. She retired as the first active female patrol Sergeant with the F.C.S.O. She remembered fondly her supportive friends and colleagues of F.O.P. Lodge 102. Marianne’s deputies always held a special place in her heart.
She also owned and operated Castle Liquors of Mt. Airy, MD in the early 1980’s. Working alongside friends and family, this was a highlight of her life.
Those who knew Marianne, knew her loves of music, family and animals (especially dogs). She spent much of her life beside her beloved canine companions. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
