Margery LaVon Grossen

Margery LaVon Grossen, 86, passed away on August 3, 2018, at home with family by her side. Born January 23, 1932 in Tipton, Iowa, Marge was the youngest child of the late Ernest and Felma (Herring) Gaul. She was predeceased by her husband, Reverend Louis W. Grossen, her brother, Richard and her sister, Darlene. 

She is survived by five children, Timothy of Plymouth, Christine (Tom) Forsterling of Random Lake, Deborah (John) Lefebvre of Plymouth, Richard (Patty) of Forest Lake MN, and James (Jodi) of Sheboygan Falls; also, a brother, Monte Gaul of Tipton, IA.

After attending rural grade school, she graduated from Tipton (Iowa) High School and Mission House College (now Lakeland University) in 1954. She furthered her education at Indiana Ivy Tech becoming a medical assistant. She worked in private home care before being employed at Pine Haven in Sheboygan Falls. In addition to health care, she worked in the Midwest interviewing for pollsters Lou Harris and Gallup. She was a homemaker above all but found time to be a den mother for the Cub Scouts and was supportive of women and youth activities in church where her husband was a pastor. 

Following retirement, Marge enjoyed cruise ship traveling and visiting the many fascinating locales around the world with her husband, family and friends.   

According to her wishes, a private service will be held for the immediate family. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to Lakeland University or Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice.
