Marguerite I. Huhn


Born October 11, 1930; died May 4, 2014 at age 83.  Daughter of  Flora (Ferris) Rowlader; stepdaughter of George Rowlader; and daughter of Peter Zynda of Grand Ledge. 

Married on November 30, 1946 to Leon P. Huhn for 58 years.

Survived by her sister-in-law, Jane Huhn; her sisters, Georgia Fry (Ken) and Joyce Morr (Ralph); daughters, Nancy McNeilly, Susan Kage (Thomas) and Diane Huhn; and sons, Thomas Huhn (Mary), and Phillip Huhn (Kim).  She was grandmother to 17 children and great grandmother to 27 and "2 halves", along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Marguerite was a devoted wife and mother and a long time resident of Grand Ledge.  She was the broker for Marguerite Huhn Real Estate Company and developer of PepperKorn Estates.  She and Leon retired to Florida with their daughter, Diane, and summered at their home at Gun Lake for 35 years and permanently for the last 15 years.  She loved her gardening and was anticipating the spring and summer to create a butterfly garden. She enjoyed the tranquility of the lake and the laughter of her grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Marguerite loved taking pictures, filled many family albums, and passed her love of photography on to Diane.  She was an avid reader and never missed "her programs" - the Young and Restless, Wheel Of Fortune, and Jeopardy.
