Schlegelmilch, Margaret Mary (31 January 1928 -
10 December 2009)
Margaret Mary Schlegelmilch, 81, passed away
peacefully Thursday, Dec. 10, 2009, at Heritage Court Assisted
Living Community in Eau Claire.
Margaret was born Jan. 31, 1928, in Loyal to
Leander and Julia (Weber) Schuld. She was raised on a farm
and attended the Pleasant View School. After leaving home,
she honed her lifelong culinary skills while working as a private
cook in Wilmette, IL. She eventually moved to Neillsville and
married Norbert Schlegelmilch Feb. 26, 1949. Together, they
raised six children and ran a successful milk delivery
Margaret was a devoted wife, mother and
homemaker. Her main passion in life could be summed up in one
word, and that is "family." Nothing was more important to her
than both her immediate and extended families. In the early
1980’s she took her passion to a new level when, equipped
with just an old typewriter and a gritty determination, she
compiled and published complete family histories of both the Schuld
and Schlegelmilch families. Having grown up as a child of the
Great Depression, "Mom" practiced such skills as gardening and
canning, darning socks, patching old blue jeans and making quilts -
all in addition to being the best cook we’ve ever known. She
was also an avid student of the Bible.
Margaret is survived by six children, eight
grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Her children
include Marian Jamison of Scottsdale, AZ, Charles (Linda)
Schlegelmilch of Neillsville, Wayne (Alea) Schlegelmilch of
Ashland, OR, Norma )Lewis) Titus of Durand, Dennis Schlegelmilch of
Compton, AR, and Kristine (Don) Woolner of Neillsville. She
is further survived by three brothers, Gerald (Peggy) Schuld of Sun
City West, AZ, Romaine (Doris) Schuld of Milwaukee and David (Lori)
Schuld of Sun City, AZ; and two sisters, Josephine (Louis) Schmidt
of Eau Claire and Marilyn (Wayne) Miller of Phoenix,
was predeceased by her parents, Leander and Julia Schuld; her
husband, Norbert Schlegelmilch; a brother, Alfred Schuld; a sister,
Elenora Long; and a grandson, Brent Titus.
Visitation will be at the Gesche Funeral Home in Neillsville Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2009, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. A memorial service will also be at the funeral home beginning at 11 a.m.
