Meyering, Marlene Joan (20 January 1964 – 3 November 2016)

After a long and courageous battle with cancer, Marlene Joan Meyering, 52, passed away surrounded by her family at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield Nov. 3, 2016, at 9:05 a.m. Marlene was born Jan. 20, 1964, in Buffalo City, IA, to Johnnie and Marilyn Meyering. Later, Marlene moved to Minnesota, where she attended school. After finishing high school, she moved back to Iowa, where she worked various jobs. In 1992, Marlene moved to Neillsville, where she resided for the rest of her life. Once in Neillsville, she worked at Weather Shield in Greenwood for 17 years. When Weather Shield closed, she started working at Cummins in Neillsville, where she worked for the past six years.

Marlene was a person full of live, always making everyone around her smile and laugh. Marlene most enjoyed spending time with her family. She loved hanging out with her children, loved spending time with her grandson and loved when she got together with her siblings. Marlene also enjoyed watching sports, especially the Packers. In her personal time, she enjoyed cooking meals for her family, doing puzzle books and doing yard work. Although everyone always gave her a hard time about it, Marlene loved working and always took on any extra hours whenever she could.

She is survived by her four children: Jason, Michelle, Nicole and Sierra; her partner of 22 years, Bob Bethea; and her grandson, Ethan.

Marlene is preceded in death by her mother, Marilyn Meyering, who she absolutely adored; her father, Johnnie Meyering; and her brother-in-law, Randy Olson.

Marlene will be remembered most by her personality. Anyone who has ever met her could agree that she was constantly making jokes and always had everyone around her laughing. She was such a positive spirit and loved life.

Service included a visitation at Gesche Funeral Home in Neillsville Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016, from 5 to 8 p.m. A funeral service will be held Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2016, starting at 11 a.m. at Gesche Funeral Home followed by a luncheon at the Hillside Community Church.
