Marjorie M. Zahrt

July 21, 1930 ~ November 6, 2017 (age 87)

Marjorie Mae Zahrt, 87, of Schofield, passed away on Monday, November 6, 2017, at Aspirus Hospice House surrounded by her children.

She was born on July 21, 1930, in the town of Wausau, to the late Elmer and Alice (Solum) Zemke.  Marjorie grew up on the family farm in the Town of Wausau, and lived in the Wausau area her entire life.  She was a busy homemaker and mother while raising her seven children, and also was the bookkeeper for the family business.  She was a member of St. John Lutheran Church, Town of Easton.

Marjorie especially loved animals.  She was an avid bird watcher, and enjoyed feeding the birds and other wildlife that came to her yard.  When she wanted to get away, Marjorie loved going for a car ride and taking day trips around Wisconsin and the U.P. of Michigan.

Survivors include her children, Marie (Lyle) Juedes of Aniwa, Keith Zahrt of Aniwa, Donna (Paul) Greenheck of Wausau, Susan (Max) Muzynoski of Ringle, Barbara (Larry) Weisenberger of Schofield, Jeffery (Lisa) Zahrt of Aniwa, and Janice (Mark) Michalski of Wausau; grandchildren, Amanda (Corey) Rose, Adam Juedes (special friend, Ali Will), Eric (Melanie) Juedes, Michael (Kasey) Greenheck, Dan (Michelle) Greenheck, Joshua Zahrt, Anna Zahrt, and Rachel Zahrt; and great-grandchild, Clayton Rose.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Elmer and Alice Zemke; brother, Elmer Zemke Jr.; great-grandson, Elmer Jon Juedes; and niece, Marlene Zemke.

A memorial service will be at 12 noon on Saturday, November 11, 2017, at St. John Lutheran Church (Town of Easton), E10723 County Road Z, with Rev. Ray Connor officiating.  Family and friends may call beginning at 9:00 a.m. until the time of service at the church.  Private burial will take place in Mechanics Ridge Cemetery at a later date.
