Marie A. Waltzing was born July 29, 1932, in Maine Prairie Township to Peter and Clara (Kiffmeyer) Waltzing. She married Virgil H. Koenig Aug. 7, 1958, at St. Wendelin’s Catholic Church in Luxemburg. Together, they farmed and raised their family. Marie was a member of St. Mary Help of Christians Catholic Parish, St. Ann’s Christian Women, and Catholic United Financial.
Marie treasured spending time with her family, playing cards, and gardening. She will be remembered for her strong faith and as being a devoted and loving mother, grandmother, and caregiver. Nobody ever left her home hungry.
Marie was preceded in death by her husband Virgil in 2015; daughters Linda Koenig, Laura Koenig, and LuAnn Lorentz; and siblings Doreen, Dennis, Albert and Gerald Waltzing.
She is survived by her daughters Karen (and Jerry) Powell of South Haven, Doreen (and Tim) Wills of Kimball, Jeannie (and Jim) Schmidt of Clearwater, and Janel (and Jim) Honer of St. Augusta; son-in-law Ted (and Joy) Lorentz of Annandale; 15 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren; and brothers Lawrence (and Helen) Waltzing and Victor Waltzing, both of Kimball.
A heartfelt “thank you” to Cherrywood South, St. Croix Hospice, and all those who have given time, care and support to Marie and family. Arrangements were with Daniel Funeral Home in St. Cloud.
