This fund was established by the children of Donie and Marie Marzuki to recognize and honor their parents for their devotion and sacrifice in raising a family during difficult economic times.
Like many other people, Mr. and Mrs. Marzuki were first generation Americans who achieved a successful and fulfilling life in the face of adversity, including the loss of a child to fire.
Donie Marzuki (1895-1976) was employed as a milkman and Marie Marzuki (1901-1976) was a homemaker.
Their daughter Judy is also honored by this fund. In spite of profound disabilities, Judy Marzuki (1943-2000) overcame great obstacles to bring much joy and happiness to her family and friends.
This fund provides grants to Keeler Center of Aurora to encourage outdoor activities for their disabled clients.
