Marie was born Sept. 3, 1914, in the town of Auburndale, Wood County, to Mike and Barbra (nee Schullhauser) Grassl. Marie and Roland Brehm were married Oct. 7, 1935, in Auburndale. He died in 1991. Before her marriage she worked in Marshfield and Evanston, Ill. She then became a farm wife for 42 years.
She was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and St. Regina’s Circle. She was an avid reader and greatly enjoyed time spent with her family. She also enjoyed birds, trees, gardening and flowers. We cherish her memory by appreciating God’s gift of nature.
