Obituary

Vandenberg, Marcy M.
Kaukauna

Age 84, passed away tragically in an auto accident on Wednesday, September 17, 2008. She was born in Kaukauna on July 21, 1924, the daughter of the late Arthur and Katherine (Heiting) Vandenberg. Prior to her retirement in 1986, after 43 years at Thilmany's, Marcy was one of the many girls who came to the mill during the war years to take over the duties of the men who had been "drafted." Her work in the Wood Room and Recovery Plant was terminated with the end of the war and she was transferred to another job in the finishing department. Being a very athletic girl, Marcy enjoyed all occasions when she could enter into a game of field hockey, baseball, basketball, or bowling. Around our city she was well known for her swimming ability. We understand that dancing also had a high rating on her list of diversions. Marcy was also an avid deer hunter and will be remembered for her delicious pink fudge.

Marcy is survived by her brothers: Raymond (Marge) Vandenberg, Harold Vandenberg and Roy (Mary Ann) Vandenberg; and sister-in-law, Mitt Vandenberg. Marcy was very dear to her sister Irene's five children: Gail (Keith) Busse, Susie (Dennis) Coffey, Jeff (Sharon) School, Mark (Bev) School and Guy (special friend, Patty) School; and their children: Brad, Lee, Mike (Jenny) Busse; Starr (Tom) Hayden; Matt and Luke (Michelle) Coffey; Corinne (Ryan) Vanden Heuvel; Rachael (Neil) Roberts; Ryan School; David, Holly, Robin, Mitchell and Austin School; special cousin, Lucille Wildenberg; and Marcy's special nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews.

Marcy was preceded in death by her parents; sister and brother-in-law, Irene (Alois) School; brothers and sisters-in-law: Elmer (Ruth) Vandenberg, John Vandenberg, Marie Vandenberg and Virginia Vandenberg.

According to Marcy's wishes, her cremated remains will be buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, Kaukauna. A mass will be said at St. Katharine Drexel, St. Mary's site, Kaukauna, on her "birthday" on July 21, 2009.

The family extends a special thank you to the staff and friends at Golden Venture Apartments.

Condolences may be sent to Susie Coffey, 421 Orchard Lane, Little Chute, WI 54140.
