Obituary

Marles M. Pieper passed into Eternal Life on April 22, 2022 at the age of 98 yrs.  Marles was born March 26, 1924, daughter of Otto and Hattie (Krueger) Uttech in Lebanon WI. She married the love of her life, Herold Pieper on June 1, 1947 at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Lebanon.

Marles loved to cook and bake.  Marles was well known for her ‘schaum torte’ which was always present at family, church and many other gatherings. She shared this love as a cook at the Hustisford High School for 19 years, retiring in 1989.  She always had a meal or snacks ready for anyone that stopped in to visit. She was a very kind, generous, good-hearted lady and always on the go. Marles was thoughtful and considerate, always putting others before herself. She was a long-time member of Bethany Lutheran Ladies Aid and Hustisford Auxiliary Post 420, holding many offices of each organization. She received the Hustisford Lions Community Service Award in 2002. Playing cards and Bingo was a favorite pastime for her and Marles loved opening her home to the Bethany Quilters for Christ every Monday for many years. There were many quilts made in her basement.  Spending time with her family and friends at her cottage in Wild Rose brought her many fond memories.
