Marie T. Worthy

October 6, 1957 — March 29, 2023


Marie T. Worthy (Weisling), age 65, of Marathon passed away on March 29, 2023, at Marshfield Hospital surrounded by her family.

Marie was born October 6, 1957, to Leonard and Victoria (Waldbauer) Weisling in Milwaukee, WI.

Marie had a unique outlook on life, and it would lead her to Leo, Indiana. She held many positions over the years, but none fulfilled her more than that of her hobby farm. It gave her the opportunity to care for the animals she so dearly loved, hone not only her gardening skills but her culinary as well. She was a trained florist, which only tapped into the creative artist that we all knew and loved. Many of her family and friends were privileged to own one of her creations in the form of intricate little fairy homes, made of gathered bits found in nature. Detailed down to the littlest tables and chairs.

In recent years, siblings were able to persuade her to come back to Wisconsin, settling in with family in Marathon. She found her creativity flow in her little studio and created a lovely path in the fields surrounding which she found pleasure walking and meditating.

Marie will be deeply missed by her family, we will miss the cheery texts of encouragement, daily reminders to choose joy and simply love life. She is survived by her siblings, Victoria (Ramesh) Kamath, Joseph (Deborah) Weisling, Christine (Charles) Schreiner. Nieces, Meera (Matthew) Schultz, Maya (Thomas) Haese, Brynn Weisling. Nephews, Vijay (Brittany Stark) Kamath, Jeremy (Jessica) Weisling. Further she is survived by five great nieces, one great nephew, family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

Celebrating her life a gathering of family and friends will take place on Wednesday, April 12, 2023. With visitation from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. with a service at 12:00 p.m. at Helke Funeral Home located at 302 Spruce Street Wausau, WI 54401.
