Marjorie J. Thielke
Marjorie, 87, a longtime resident of Saukville and a native of Port Washington, passed on to eternal life on Friday, February 13, 2015 at Harbor Club. The daughter of the late Mildred (Van Price) and Leon DeBroux, she was united in marriage with LeRoy A. "Lee" Thielke on August 28, 1948 at St. Mary's Church by Father Hildebrand.
She worked at Simplicity during WWII and after her marriage became a bookkeeper for Herb Schowalter Sr., eventually having her own business called Marge's Bookkeeping & Tax Service for 25 yrs. She was also a notary republic and worked for a short time at National Bank in Saukville.
When her kids were young she was a Campfire Girl leader and attended their many sports activities. She held many offices for the groups she belonged to, including Christian Mothers, Christian Foresters, Royal Neighbors of America and the Landt-Thiel American Legion Auxiliary, Unit #470.
While they were courting, Marge and Lee loved to dance on roller skates. They later volunteered to be directors for the Immaculate Conception roller skating rink for about 6 years. They received a Saukville Sport's Day Award for their many years of service to youth of the community.
Marjorie's grandchildren remember the family cottage on Pike Lake, affectionately called 'grandma's lake'. Fishing there with grandma and grandpa was a nightly pastime. While there, she loved to read and work on crossword puzzles.
She is survived by her husband, LeRoy Thielke, residing at Harbor Club, and their children: Sharon (John) Zalewski of Saukville and Steve (Donna) of Reeseville. She is further survived by 6 grandchildren: Eric (Jaime) and Joel (Ali) of Port Washington, Dawn (Carl) Kopacz and Christine Thielke of Port Washington, Ryan Thielke of Fredonia, and Brian (Darcy) of Cedarburg, great grandchildren: Aaron, Adam, Aerissa, Aidan, Samuel, Xander and Cecilia, her brother Jerry DeBroux and sister-in-law Arla DeBroux, both of Port Washington, other relatives and friends. She is preceded in death by brothers, Donald and Norbert "DeeBee" DeBroux and sister Eunice (Herb) Bartelt.
