Marjorie Eid Obituary
Marjorie J. Eid

Marjorie J. Eid, age 87, of Winneconne, died peacefully on August 11, 2014, at Oakwood Assisted Living, Oshkosh. She was born January 30, 1927, in Granton, WI to Loren and Amelia (Krause) Hales.

She graduated from Granton Public School, Wisconsin State College of Stevens Point with a degree in English Education and the University-Oshkosh with a Master's Degree in Library Science. Marge married John S. Eid on August 25, 1948, in Granton.

From humble and hardworking Depression-era farm roots, Marjorie grew in grace, resourcefulness, determination, faith and a desire to serve others; attributes that defined her entire life. A quick wit and love of learning lead her to college, and a career in education. Alongside John, she raised a family while both worked full-time. Before their nest emptied, she was back at college to earn her Master's Degree. Marge gave tirelessly of her free time in volunteer endeavors too numerous to count with her church, civic organizations, EAA, and most notably, The Winneconne Historical Society, and The Winneconne Public Library. Not only was she a creative homemaker, seamstress, and accomplished in a variety of domestic arts, she was a fabulous cook. In every case, her efforts were flavored by her desire to give her best.

Marge and John loved to explore by auto, and while tempted by such exotic locales as Key West, San Francisco, and Alaska, they were content with a Sports Car Club rally or a camping/fishing trip to Canada. Packer games at Lambeau Field were also an exciting diversion.

The greatest joy of her life was her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be missed not only by her family and friends, but by all those whose lives she has touched during the long, active, amazingly full life granted her.

Marjorie is survived by her husband John; two sons: Jim Eid and Marie Carow, Park Falls; Jerry and Terri Eid, Neenah; a daughter Jane and David Lupo, Menasha; four grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren; and one sister, Jeanette Steiner.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Albert Hales and Norman Hales; three sisters, Evelyn Dudei, Marie Hillert, and Lucille Hales.

A visitation for family and friends will be on Friday, August 15, 2014, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Mueller Funeral Home, 904 E. Main St. Winneconne. Visitation will continue on Saturday, August 16 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. at St. Paul's Ev. Lutheran Church, 8 S. Fourth St. Winneconne. A funeral service will be held on Saturday at the church at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Mark Albrecht officiating. Burial will be in the Winneconne Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers memorials have been established for the Winneconne Public Library and the Winneconne Historical Society.

Marge's family would like to thank Heartland Hospice and Oakwood Manor for their exceptional care and support.
