The former Marjorie Nuernberger was born on Jan. 6, 1947 in Medford to the late Elmer Arnold and Goldie Irene (Moore) Nuernberger. She attended Little Black Center School in the town of Little Black, and was a graduate of Medford High School. She worked as a nurse's aid at Memorial Nursing Home in Medford.

In 1981, she worked as a nurse's aid and later a receptionist at Memorial Hospital in Medford until ill health health forced her retirement in 2003.

She was a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church. She enjoyed gardening, scrapbooking, baking, camping and other family adventures, and spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

In addition to her husband, survivors include three children, Timothy (fiancée Dianne Gebhart) Metz of Sun Prairie, Brenda (Brian Richards) Metz of Mosinee and Julie (Scott) Navarre of Marshfield; five siblings, Nancy Wycliffe, Paul (Linda) Nuernberger, Mary (Tom) Brost, and Sara Nuernberger, all of Medford, and Neal (Jean) Nuernberger of Wahpeton, N.D.; mother-in-law, Beulah Metz of Medford; a brother-in-law, Roger Paul of Hubertus; a sister-in-law, Doris Nuernberger of Sheboygan Falls; and four grandchildren, Ethan and Peyton Metz and Parker and Megan Navarre.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two siblings, David Nuernberger and Ellyn Paul.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be given to Hope Hospice of Medford or Taylor County Humane Society.
