Mildred "Millie" Marg

 

Mildred “Millie” Marg, age 92 and 361 days, of Winona, passed away on Saturday July 1, 2023, at home with family by her side.

She was born July 5, 1930, in Leola, South Dakota, to John and Barbara (Hartman) Kallas and grew up there on the family farm with five siblings.

Millie came to Winona to help her aunt with her family and later worked at Ted Meier Drug and Watkins.  On Sept 1, 1953, she married Eugene Marg.  To this union 9 children were born: Jerome (Stacey) Marg, Carol (Tom) Sauerer, Stanley (Shannon) Marg, Leonard (Nancy) Marg all of Winona, Joyce Marg of Fountain City WI, Kevin Marg and Gary (Barb) Marg of Winona, Dennis (Teri) Marg of Onalaska WI, and Sue (Pete) Rothering of Buffalo City WI.  20 grandchildren: Brady Marg and Justin and Kayla Spalding; Amy O’Laughlin and Brent Sauerer; Shawn Marg; Heather, Kaitlin, Blake, and Calli Marg; Karlee, Kelsie, and Karah Marg; McKenna and Natalie Marg; Kaylee Marg, Kasi Muras and Britton Marg, Sarah and Alex Rothering. 3 great-grandchildren: Maelin, James, and Jace.

She was the dedicated and sole office staff of Marg Plumbing and Heating for 66 years. On occasion Gene and Millie enjoyed a break by traveling to some interesting places and countries.  Participation in the Winona County Fair was a highlight for many years.  There were many ribbons won on wine, canning, crocheting, embroidery, baking, and crafts.  She enjoyed quilting with the Harvest House group at St. Stans church, providing food for the family through gardening and canning, and of course feeding and watching the birds and squirrels.  Family gatherings were very special to her as well.   

Millie was preceded in death by her husband Eugene in 2006; her parents; and all siblings: Francis (LaVere) Kallas, Lorraine (Art) Redig, Marie (Albert) Schloegel, Rita (John) Schloegel and infant brother Jerome Kallas.
