Margaret M. Nogle, age 93 of Mondovi, passed away on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at Chippewa Valley Hospital, Durand. She was born on June 15, 1925 in Mondovi to John and Agnes Elenora (Risberg) Werlein and lived in Chimney Rock, WI, during the early years of her life.
A lifelong resident of Mondovi, she was a Mondovi High School graduate of 1944. She had many special memories with her classmates at Putzier’s grocery and Blum’s bowling alley. After high school, Margaret worked in Hastings, MN at Smead Manufacturing while Art served in the war.
She married Arthur G. Nogle on Wednesday, May 7, 1947 and they were able to share 36 years together with their children. They enjoyed camping, fishing and spending time with friends. Margaret worked at Ben Franklin store from 1964 until she began working at the elementary public school as a teacher’s aide in 1972, retiring in 1995. She had a soft spot for children. Margaret enjoyed crafting and was well known for her knitted baby sweaters and pairs of slippers. Her door was always open to any visitor and her home was a warm place to reminisce and laugh; she always had a sweet treat or two to share.
She was a faithful and devoted member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Mondovi, and was proud to have started the prayer chain in 2002 with the Senior Alter Society.
Margaret left an indelible impact on those who knew and loved her. She will always be remembered for her sense of humor, love of cardinals, knitted crafts, joy of reading and the great love that she had for Art and her family and friends.
Margaret is survived by her children, James (Jane) Nogle, Thomas (Nanette) Nogle, Jane (Dale) Larson and daughter in law, Kathy (Scott) Wisniewski; grandchildren Scot (Darcie) Nogle, Seth Nogle (finance Amber Berg), Shae Nogle (fiancé Stacey Zaverousky), Amanda, Sara and Joseph Nogle, and Jacob Larson; great grandchildren, Brysen and Anicka Nogle and Violet Nogle; sisters, Noreen ‘Nooks’ Haas and Patricia (Howard) Freund; sister in law, Jeanette Werlein; special friend Mary Kinne and daughter Amy; special nephew, (her ‘4th son’) John Haas and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Art; son, Michael; brother, James Werlein; three infant sisters; and brother in law, Vincent Haas.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Mondovi on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at 10:00 am with Father Paul Bosco presiding. Cremation rites will be accorded and Margaret will be interred at 3:00 pm at the parish cemetery later that day.
