The family of Doris (Richter) Marquard would like you to know that her time on earth is done. She received a call from God on Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2019, and peacefully slipped away from the people and places she loved.  She was 91 years young at the time of her departure.

Today she’s in heaven planting flowers, going for walks, looking for work that needs doing, handing out hugs, cooking, singing funny songs, and sitting at the feet of Jesus.

Doris was preceded in death by her husband, Dale Marquard.

She leaves behind Donna (Marquard) and Dave Liedtke, Bonnie (Marquard) and Mike Evans, and Debbie (Marquard) Holewinski.

She also said goodbye to seven grandchildren, Nicole, Matthew, Amber, Melissa, Amy, Carrie and Andy; and seven great-grandchildren, Taylor, Sam, Emily, Piper, Graysen, Bailey and Payton.

She also leaves behind two sisters-in-law, Virginia (Marquard) Morris and Lucille (Jones) Richter.

She will be remembered and missed by all.

A funeral service was held  at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019, with the Rev. Kufahl officiating at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Eagle River, Wis. Visitation was held two hours prior to the service.

In lieu of flowers, please honor Doris with a donation to Our Savior Lutheran Church, Eagle River, for their radio ministry and the Martha Society.
