Obituary for Mae Margaret Marquardt

Mae Margaret Marquardt, age 90, of the Town of Stella, died on February 25, 2018 in Rhinelander, WI. Mae was born on July 17, 1927 at the family’s home in Pine River near Merrill WI to Edward and Helen (Kufahl) Buchholz.

Mae was the middle of three children. Her family later moved to Enterprise where the children attended the Enterprise Grade School. She spoke only German when she started school in first grade. Mae’s father died when she was just a teen, but she went on to graduate from the Elcho High School in 1945. She married Clarence “Red” Marquardt and his seven children, on May 7, 1955. They then added two more children to the family, so Mae was kept awfully busy with nine children. Her gifts included gardening, sewing, canning and working hard. She was not afraid to work and work hard. Her meatballs, pickles, potato casserole, raspberry jam and apple pies were much enjoyed. After Red’s retirement, they operated Red Marquardt’s Sawmill near Starks for many years. They were known for their pine paneling and cedar decking. Their sawmill became part of the historical exhibit at Rhinelander Logging Museum and was opened to the public in 2009. Above all else, their Lord and Savior was the center of all they did in life. Red and Mae worshipped their Lord as long time members of Zion Ev. Lutheran Church in Rhinelander.

Mae is survived by her eight children: Barbara (Dennis) Johnson, Roger (Cindy) Marquardt, Philip (Lynnette) Marquardt, Linda Thorsen, Cindy Cahak, David (Peggy) Marquardt, Karen (Jim) Krupa and Steve (Cindy) Marquardt, her daughter in law Pat Marquardt, 28 grandchildren, many great grandchildren and a great great grandchild. She enjoyed every moment with her grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband Clarence “Red”, her son Doug, a grandson Richie, her parents and her brothers Herbert and Edward.
