A Life Well Loved
Margaret Fehringer passed away on February 6, 2022, surrounded by the love of her family. Her beloved husband, William Fehringer, predeceased her by 18 years, but their love story did not die with him. She carried her love for him until the end.
Marge is survived by her 11 children: William Fehringer, Robert Fehringer, Margaret Beyer, Peter Fehringer, Theresa Hehir, Bernice Fehringer, Pauline Farrell, Paul Fehringer, Mary Seibt, Carole Massi and Richard Fehringer. Her legacy continues through her 51 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren. Marge also leaves her sisters, Helen Boyle and Mary Courtney and her in-laws, Elaine Richards and Carole and Tony Foster.
Her life was a reflection of her beliefs: Faith and family always came first. Marge’s love of family was most demonstrated during the holidays. Hosting Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners for her extended family was no easy task, but she took it on with a smile on her face and laughter in the kitchen. She made cooking a traditional meal for 30-40 people seem effortless. The evening would usually end with a huge card party that would last until the wee hours of the night. You can guarantee that there would be lots of laughter and plenty of candy on the candy tray!
Marge’s deep and personal faith helped her throughout her life. Even though her memories were robbed from her, there were some things that remained: Her faith and her love of the Rosary. She will be our biggest advocate in Heaven.
Besides cards, Marge also loved other games. Her super Scrabble skills put most of us to shame; her luck at the slot machines was unparalleled and her love of reading was something that was shared between generations. Many books were passed between Grandma and her grandkids.
Marge had a great sense of humor which was still sharp at the end, and her timing was perfect. Her smile could brighten a room and if it was accompanied by her unique laugh, you knew it was a good day.
Even though her memory was not the best at the end of her long life, she always remembered her family. She might not have remembered your name, but she recognized her children. We are all blessed to have had her in our lives. She was an amazing mother, sister, grandma and great-grandma. Whatever you called her, she loved us all and played such an important role in all our lives.
She had a long and storied life and she will be greatly missed.
The family greatly appreciates donations made to these charities in Margaret M. Fehringer 's name.
