With heavy hearts, we announce the death of Marian Wildeboer from Dawsonville, GA, who passed away on August 31,2020 at the age of 76.

She was preceded in death by her sister, Jeanne Ashley, and brother Alan Wildeboer. She is survived by her brother Gary Wildeboer, many nieces, nephews and great-nephews including Steve Ashley, Rebecca Hunt, Matthew Wildeboer, Karen Ashley, Gary Hunt, Jennifer Wildeboer, Robert Ashley, Miles Wildeboer and Charlie Wildeboer, and her beloved pets Shadow, Max and Panda.

For more than 30 years, Marian ran the Paramedic Program at Dekalb Technical College, where she helped start the program that has trained hundreds of paramedics and firemen in life saving techniques. She always held firemen and the lifesaving work they do in high honor. To many paramedics in the state she is remembered as “Mother Marian”, and they still remember her lessons and love her.

Marian was a kind and loving soul who always wanted to help unfortunate animals, as well as being a loving sister, aunt and friend to many. Her family and friends are devastated by her passing, but we know we will see her again.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to your local Humane Society, or even better, if you have a place in your heart and home, adopt a shelter or rescue animal in her honor

Marian was my paramedic instructor nearly 30 years ago. She really took pride in teaching and cared for her students like we were her own family. I will never forget how particular she was in our performance, but for good cause - because we would be caring for others after we graduated.

I am proud to say I went to DeKalb Tech and made it through Mother Marian’s College of EMS Knowledge. She is a legend in EMS, known widely, and respected deeply. The EMS world in Georgia is what it is because of her and almost everyone with a Georgia EMT or Paramedic number has been influenced by her with no more than three degrees of separation.

We love you, Marian. You will be missed.

“another” Marion was my paramedic instructor in 1992. She was truly like a mother to all the medics she nurtured into the most proficient and prepared medics she taught. She incorporated her vast knowledge of EMS, as one of the pioneers in modern EMS instruction.

I actually search out her phone number a year or so ago and called her. We spoke for quite a while and it was if no time had passed since school. I am so thankful I took the time to chat with her for the time we did. May God comfort your immediate and EMS children, who’s lives have been so touched and influenced by you. You will always be “Mother” to me!

S. Scott McClure, CCEMT-P
