Marcella Marie Schwahn

May 31, 1926 — March 30, 2022

Marcella Marie Schwahn (Werner-Luebke) died March 30, 2022, at the age of 95.  Marcie was born to Joe and Catherine (Mueller) Werner in Mackville, WI on May 31, 1926.  Marcie grew up in the Appleton area.  Marcie met Frank Luebke at the Cinderella Ballroom and they married in 1951.  Soon after marrying they welcomed children Marilyn (who was born in Alabama just prior to Frank’s discharge from the Army), and then Jeff who was born in Appleton (barely outside the elevator at St Elizabeth Hospital). The family settled at the family home in Kimberly where Marcie spent the next 70 plus years.  

Marcie loved to garden and began gardening a huge space where Marcie and Frank grew raspberries, rhubarb, and every vegetable you can imagine.  Marcie was also a fan of dahlias, marigolds, gladiolas, and moss roses in the garden as well.  Marcie’s green thumb was prolific, and she also grew lilies of the valley and tulips.

Frank and Marcie loved to dance, and she especially enjoyed listening to polka music on Sunday mornings right before mass time.  Marcie was a mean sheepshead player and played almost nightly with her friends Ken and Marv who would give her a ride to the game, feed her, take her money, and take her back home!

When Frank died in 1968, Marcie not only learned how to drive but started a career as a housecleaner and nanny.  She developed wonderful relationships with the families she served.  In 1975 Marcie married Clarence Schwahn who died in 2005.

Marcie is survived by her children Marliyn (Michael) Process and Jeff (Jane) Luebke; grandchildren: Shannon (Jeremy) Process and Erica (Phil) Bauer-Yingling; great grandchildren Benjamin, Anthony, Vaughn, Wyatt, Marshall, Ashcher and Cooper. Marcie is further survived by her sister Evelyn Krueger, brothers in law: Jerry Behringer, Orville (Jean) Luebke and Gerald Schwahn, sister-in-law Carol Luebke and numerous nieces, nephews as well as other family and good friends.

Preceding Marcie in death are her parents, husbands Frank and Clarence, sisters: Leona (Al) McClone, Doris (Elton) Lorenz, brother Jerome (Germaine) Werner, brothers in law: Richard Schiebe, Walter Krueger, Harold Luebke, Henry (Dorothy) Luebke, sister-in-law Eunice Behringer
