Marie Jeanette Wengler was born February 15, 1937 in Sauk Centre, Minnesota to Theodore and Irene (Pangburn) Wengler. She had a passion for helping others. This started at a young age while helping her parents with the family grocery store as well as watching her younger siblings, Rosella and Jim. As the years went on, she married the love of her life, Dick, on May 5, 1962, at Saint Paul's Catholic Church in Sauk Centre, Minnesota. They raised 2 kids, Keith and Lynda. 

Throughout her life, she had a flare for being creative. She did candle making, jewelry making, cake decorating (she made Randy and Lynda's wedding cake), she made over 200 dolls to sell. She founded Mittens To Go, and with the help of other people, would sew mittens, pillows, and stocking caps for the needy. Marie also would sew stuffed teddy bears to give to the police station to hand out to people that were involved in a car accident to give comfort. Marie's loving heart will always be remembered and truly missed by all that would ever come in contact with her.  

Survivors include her son, Keith Unger of Jordan; daughter and son-in-law, Lynda and Randy Hesse of Chaska; granddaughters, Erica Unger of St. Paul and Stephanie Unger of Belle Plaine, and their mother, Anna Marie Unger of Jordan; and sister, Rosella Maile of Avon.

Marie was preceded in death by her husband, Dick Unger on March 25, 2018; parents; and brother, Jim Wengler.
