Marjorie "Margie" Mehre Obituary

Marjorie (Margie) Mae Rosenthal Mehre was called home to Heaven on Sunday January 28, 2024, at the age of 86. We remember and celebrate the remarkable life of a woman whose heart overflowed with kindness, compassion, and faith. She was born in Plymouth on April 7, 1937, to Carl and Loretta (Kraemer) Rosenthal growing up in the town of Greenbush. Margie graduated from Glenbeulah High School and attended Mission (Lakeland) College with an Accounting/Bookkeeping degree. After graduation, she worked at Borden’s cheese in the payroll department in Plymouth, WI for 4 years.  She married Marlon Mehre, her high school sweetheart, on June 11,1960, and thereafter devoted her life to supporting her family, planting her garden, and working on the family farm from 1960 until 2012.  She was a life-long resident of the town of Greenbush, living her entire 86 years of life within 1 mile radius of her parents’ farm.

Margie’s life was a testament to the power of a mother’s love. She possessed a tireless work ethic and a servant's heart. Her lifelong dedication to her family, church, homemaker’s club and her unwavering commitment to making a positive difference; no matter the challenge, Margie's actions reflected loving kindness and grace in action.   

She took immense joy in her role as a mother and grandmother. Quality time spent with her family playing cards, bingo, bowling, fishing, baking Halloween (pumpkin cookies) and Thanksgiving (turkey cookies) warmed her and her grandchildren’s hearts. Margie’s loving and generous spirit extended to every corner of her life – giving little gifts, praying for others, baking home-made pies and cookies, cleaning the church, and landscaping her yard.

Margie's life was enriched by the support and encouragement of those around her. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Reverend Don Johnson, who provided her with prayer support, songs, communion, and visits, Songbird Pond Assisted Living facility, and Sharon Richardson Hospice, as well as all other relatives and friends who stood by her side.

Though Margie has passed on from this world, her legacy of faith, hope and love lives on in the hearts of all who knew her. Margie is survived by her husband and her children Roger (Kelly) Mehre, Gary (Cindy) Mehre, Wayne (Mary Jane) Mehre and grandchildren Jared, Jenna, Jessica Mehre, Ethan & Seth Mehre, Sydney & Jordyn Mehre; sister Marilyn (Ray)Rank, and many nieces and nephews.

Margie was preceded in death by her parents, Carl and Loretta Rosenthal, her sister Jeanette Maas, brother-in-law Richard Maas and father and mother-in-law, Maynard and Hilda Mehre.
