Marie K. Jung, 90, Howard, formerly of Oconto Falls went to her heavenly home on Friday evening, July 14, 2017.  She was born on October 19, 1926, in Green Lake to Rev. Erdmann and Katherine (Schwartz) Pankow and was baptized as a child of God days later.  She was confirmed on June 9, 1940, at Peace Ev, Lutheran Church in Green Lake and later graduated from Winnebago Lutheran Academy with the Class of 1944.  Following graduation, Marie moved with her family to Hustisford, WI, where she was employed by the Hustisford Canning Company and then the Rein-Leitzke Company. 

On Sept. 16, 1950, Marie married Armin Jung at Bethany Lutheran Church in Hustisford, WI.  Following their marriage, the couple lived in Juneau, WI, until 1959 when they moved their family of three children to Oconto Falls. They enjoyed traveling through Northern Wisconsin and the UP, often stopping to explore rural areas.  Starting at a young age, Marie loved playing piano and organ.  She served as a church organist for more than sixty years, first in Green Lake and surrounding churches, then at Hustisford, and finishing at St. Paul Ev. Lutheran Church in Oconto Falls when she was in her seventies.  Marie was a dedicated employee of the Oconto Falls Public Schools for 22 years, serving most of this time as the administrative secretary to the superintendent and school board, retiring in 1990.

Marie is survived by two sons and one daughter: Alan (Lorna) Jung, Aurora, CO, Linda Jung, Baraboo, WI, and Daniel Jung, Howard, and special friend Lynn Baumgartner, Green Bay; two grandchildren: Matthew and Melissa Jung; one brother: Gerald (Carol) Pankow, Waterloo, WI; one sister-in-law: Winifred (Pankow)  Denninger, Beloit; many nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives and friends. 

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of almost 53 years, Armin Jung; her parents: Rev. Erdman and Katherine Pankow; two brothers: Rev. Paul Pankow and Rev. Richard Pankow; one sister-in-law: Karen (Paul) Pankow; her in-laws: Ewald and Gertrude Jung.
