Marjorie Ellen Wohlfarth was born at home on a farm in West Lodi, Ohio to Thurman and Goldie Mittower, on August 19, 1929. She passed away Thursday, January 25, 2018. Determined to better herself, Marjorie raised chickens to put herself through nursing school. Marjorie graduated from Thompson High School, then Maumee Valley School of Nursing in 1950. For several years she worked as a registered nurse at Maumee Valley and Riverside Hospitals in Toledo.
Marjorie met the love of her life on a blind date. After a brief courtship they were married on August 22, 1953. About a year later, Marge set aside her nursing career to begin raising a family.
For many years, Marge enjoyed staying home to can tomatoes, green beans, and make the best strawberry jam around. She was Den Mother to Cub Scout Pack 247. Marge, along with Karl and all four boys, “enjoyed” traveling out west, pitching their family tent each night along the way.
She was preceded in death by her parents, sister, Arlene Sellers, brothers, Calvin and Edward Mittower, and step mother, Bernice Mittower.
Marjorie is survived by her loving husband of 64 years, Karl; sons, Paul (Charlotte), Tim (Carol), Ted (Carolyn) and Mark (Sherry) Wohlfarth, 6 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Marjorie will be dearly missed by her family.
