The Lord our God has mercifully taken Marcella “Marcie” Helen Wahl to her eternal rest on 5 September 2021 from Ecumen Pathstone Living Center from numerous natural causes.
Marcie was born in Liberty Grove Township, Richland County, North Dakota and was delivered by her father, Frank, on 8 April 1935. She graduated from Lidgerwood High School in 1953 then attended beauty school in Fargo, ND. She married Wilbur Wahl on 23 June 1955 in Lidgerwood, ND. She was a member of Hosanna Lutheran Church since 1973 and enjoyed being a member of the quilting group and monthly BINGO volunteer at Pathstone. Marcie was a Vine volunteer who drove and made in home visits.
We will deeply miss Marcie’s sharp dry sense of humor and her loving and thoughtful discussions. She loved visits from her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Marcie enjoyed watching Jeopardy, playing trivia, and working on crossword puzzles to keep her mind sharp. She was an avid fan of all Minnesota sports teams. She enjoyed the challenge of playing cards with friends and neighbors.
Marcie is survived by her daughter, Beverly (Steve) Thomas; son, Wayne (Cindy Turner); grandchildren, Michael and Christopher Thomas, Melissa (Hank) Hyatt and Matt (Roxanne) Wahl; great-grandchildren, Chloe Hyatt, Lucas and Nicklas Wahl, and soon Mackenzie Turner. She is also survived by her sister, Alice Haugen; and sisters-in-law, Beverly, Marianne, Dixie and Diane Klepetka. Numerous nieces and nephews will also miss her.
Marcie was preceded in death by her loving husband, Wilbur; father and mother, Frank and Mary (Jirak) Klepetka; brothers, Chester, Adolph, Victor, Ernie and Albert; and sister, Alma Orth. Brothers-in-law preceding her death include Eldon Orth and Treadwell Haugen.
A special thanks goes to the loving care she received at Ecumen Pathstone Crossing for the past five years.
The immediate family will hold a private Celebration of Life at Hosanna Lutheran Church at 1pm, Friday, September 10, 2021 at Hosanna Lutheran Church. Burial following next to her husband at Pilgrim’s Rest Cemetery. The service will be live-streamed from Hosanna and can be viewed at https://hosannamain.online.church.

Blessed be her memory.
