Marion Jehn

July 5, 1929 — May 17, 2021

Wausau

Marion M. Jehn, 91 of Wausau, passed away Monday, May 17, 2021, at Marshfield Medical Center-Weston Campus, with her daughters Lynell and Lori by her side.

Marion was born July 5, 1929, in the Town of Berlin, to the late Raymond and Leona (Plautz) Borchardt.

She married Laurin Martin Jehn on October 11, 1947. Together they had 4 children, Lynell, Theron “Butch”, Randy, and Lori. Laurin preceded her in death on May 18, 2010.

For over 30 years, Marion worked at North Central Health Care Center as a Psychiatric Technician, doing what she did best, taking care of others. To her family and friends, Marion was a kind, compassionate and caring soul who always put others before herself. That was just who she was.

Going up north, watching the cardinals and hummingbirds, playing Scrabble, doing a word search, embroidering, and spending time with family were just some of the things she loved. Marion had a sweet tooth. Whether it be cake, cookies, pie, doughnuts, or any type of dessert, it was never turned down.  She also collected angels and looked forward to decorating her Easter egg tree each year, where she would place hundreds of hand-decorated eggs on her tree. Each one having its own description, wrapping, and box.  Marion’s memory will live on in the hearts and memories of all who knew and loved her.

Marion is survived by her daughters, Lynell (John) Huber and Lori (Matt) Heyne; grandchildren Jodi (Vince) LaCalamita, Jason Heyne, and Stephanie (Jason) Rosenow; great-grandchildren Hannah (Ben) Laska, Emily LaCalamita, and Carson and Claire Rosenow; sister-in-law Inez Peterson; as well as several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and husband, Marion was preceded in death by her sons, Randy and Theron; as well as her sisters, Elaine Paul and Jean Zastrow.

Funeral services will be held at 10:30 AM on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, at Zion Lutheran Church 701 N.       6th Street, Wausau.  Visitation will take place from 9:00 AM until the time of services at the church.  A private burial will take place at St. Paul’s Cemetery, Town of Naugart. Family and friends are asked to go to www.helke.com to leave words of remembrance and online condolences.
