Marge owned and operated Wolf's Grocery Store in Marshfield for 57 years until her retirement in December of 2013. She derived a great deal of pleasure from selling candy to the neighborhood children and the children from Madison School. She was always eager to chat with them about how their day had gone. Many came back years later with their children and grandchildren. Marge also enjoyed making lunches for anyone who stopped in. She was well known for her hospitality, generosity, and for cooking for relatives and friends. She enjoyed crocheting many afghans and scarves. She will be dearly missed by all.
She is survived by her children, Darlene (Salvador) Barrocas of Medinah, IL, Shirley (Thomas) Southworth of Wausau, and Chuck (Sherry) Wolf of Eau Claire. She is also survived by 6 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. She is further survived by 2 brothers, Russell Bruhn and Forrest "Bud" Bruhn, both of Marshfield.
She was predeceased by her parents, her husband, a grandson, Jim Southworth, a great grandson, Jared Southworth and 2 sisters.
Contributions may be made for a memorial to be determined at a later date.
The family wishes to extend their deep gratitude to the staffs of Golden Living Center Three Oaks, Ministry St. Joseph's Hospital, Palliative Care, and to the many friends who provided help, comfort and support.
