Marjorie was born July 5, 1944 in Milwaukee, WI to Record and Doris (Klink) Bruner. She graduated from John Edwards High School in Port Edwards and further her education at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
She taught physical education in Waupaca and later at Lincoln High School in Wisconsin Rapids. She also worked as a substitute teacher for many years in the Wisconsin Rapids school district, worked at Kendall’s Grocery Store in Kellner and drove school bus for many years.
Marjorie was an active member of St. John Lutheran Church in Kellner where she served with the Ladies Aid, youth group, and bible studies meant a great deal to her. She was also active in Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) and the Red Hat Society. She enjoyed playing pool and cards. She was an avid woodworker and was a member of the Wisconsin River Woodcarvers for many years. Camping was a big part of her life and she also attended many Lamers bus trips. Her cherished memory was a trip with Larry to Alaska.
Marjorie is survived by her daughter, Kathy Krohn of Stevens Point; son, Randy Rumble of Wisconsin Rapids; sister, Carol Bruner of Wisconsin Rapids; special friend, Beverly Dahn of Rome, WI; and sisters-in-law, Mary Bruner, Dawn Schlimgen, and Pat Matthews; and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Larry; infant granddaughter, Brianna Rumble; two brothers, Jack and Jim Bruner; and two sisters, Bev Lau and Eileen Schroeder.
