The world has lost a wonderful woman.

Hubby’s grandma passed away last Sunday.

She will be dearly missed by many including me.

My blog page will be hers for the weekend as we get together with family and friends to celebrate her life.

Rest in peace Grandma Marie, we all know you are watching over us.

Marie Sylvia Heuer,  age 104, of Port Edwards, WI, formerly of Wild Rose, WI, passed quietly on September 2, 2012.

Marie was born June 14, 1908 in Wautoma Township, Wisconsin, to Henry Olaus Thompson and Maud C. (Selsing) Thompson, the fifth of seven children. On May 14, 1930, she married Edwin H. Heuer in Waushara County, Wisconsin. She worked as a one-room schoolhouse teacher before assisting Edwin in the family meat market business in Wild Rose, Wisconsin. She served as ward clerk at the Wild Rose Community Hospital from 1954-1979, and continued to work there part-time for several years after that. She was an active member of the Wild Rose United Methodist Church ladies circle.

Marie loved to cook, crochet, embroider, play organ, and work in her flower gardens. Her favorite expression was… “Always eat dessert first – just in case.”

She is survived by her three children – Edwin (Mary) Heuer, Marilyn (Thomas) Sanford, and Wendy Caswell – in addition to 11 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren, and 8 great-great grandchildren.

Marie was predeceased by her husband, Edwin Heuer in 1994, six siblings, her son-in-law James Caswell, and one great-grandchild.

Special heartfelt thanks to the staff of Edgewater Haven for their loving care of Marie during the last few years of her life.
