SAUK CITY/ BLACKHAWK - Argent Sprecher, age 93, passed away on Sunday, June 6, 2004, as a result of a fall. She was born on April 23, 1911, in Dorchester, Wis., to the Rev. John and Bertha (Nickels) Marks.

Argent graduated from Jefferson High School on 1929, and received a bachelor of science degree from North Central College, Naperville, Ill., in 1933. She did post-graduate studies at UW-Madison.

On Aug. 21, 1943, she married Clarence Sprecher. He preceded her in death on Dec. 9, 1985.

Argent was an active member of the Blackhawk Church, where she taught Sunday school and was very involved with church activities. Argent served on the school board during consolidation of the rural grade schools and the Sauk Prairie High School. In their retirement, Argent and Clarence enjoyed traveling throughout the world. Argent was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and will be greatly missed by her family.

She is survived by three sons, Thomas (Connie) Sprecher, Baraboo, Daniel (Sharon) Sprecher, Blackhawk, and Gerald (Sarah) Sprecher, Woodridge, Ill.; five grandchildren, Tracey (Steve) Breunig, Blackhawk, Sarah (Dan) Lewison, Baraboo, John Sprecher, Ravensburg, Germany, and Elizabeth and Colin Sprecher, Woodridge, Ill.; three great-grandchildren, Elise and Caroline Lewison, and Dylan Breunig; two sisters-in-law, Ruth Hehenberger and Marcella Sprecher; and a brother-in-law, Cecil McCready.
