Obituary for Marvin H. Abrahamson

Marvin Harold “Marv” Abrahamson, 93, of Oak Park died Tuesday morning from complications due to Parkinson’s Disease. Deeply rooted in Austin and Oak Park, both as a resident and owner of Abrahamson’s Fur Salons, Marv grew up in South Austin, on Adams and Central, attending Robert Emmett Elementary School and Austin High School, where he played guard on the varsity basketball team until his 1943 graduation. His parents Lillian and Joe also had three other children: Elmer, Sylvia and Melvin. Marv was the youngest. After a semester at Wright Jr. College, Marv enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving honorably in the Pacific, returning home in 1946 to join Joe and Elmer in the family business on Madison and Mayfield. In the 1950’s, the salon moved to 122 North Marion in Oak Park, where Marv welcomed his son Bruce into the business in 1978. Marv was a proud member of Rotary, the Oak Park Tennis Club, and the unofficial “Mayor of Marion Street.” He was a Chicago Bulls season ticket holder for nearly half a century. A resident of Brookdale Oak Park at the time of his passing, Marv is succeeded by his companion of nearly 40 years, Mary Ann Jurgus, his sons Bruce and Terry, daughter-in-law Vicki Lafer Abrahamson, son-in-law David Branch, grandsons Joey, Sam and Jake and granddaughters Charlotte and Jenny.

Shiva will be held Saturday, September 1st from 6:30 p.m. at the home of Vicki and Terry Abrahamson, 840 West Hutchinson St., Chicago.
