Marjorie's Story

Text size

Marjorie Lou (Dannevik) Muhl, Kokomo, was faithful to Christ until death and received her crown of life Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2018. She was born Feb. 1, 1933, in Kansas City, Kansas, to Edgar and Margaret (McCoy) Dannevik. She married A. Herbert Muhl on Aug. 22, 1953, in Buffalo, New York. He preceded her in death May 8, 1993.
In the earlier years of her life, Marjorie lived in the St. Louis, Missouri, area. She was a 1951 graduate of University High School and then attended the Margaret Hickey School for Secretaries. Marjorie met her soon-to-be husband while he was doing seminary fieldwork at her church. After marrying, they stayed in St. Louis for 10 more years, and her husband was pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church. In 1967 Marjorie and Pastor moved to Kokomo, where he accepted a call as senior pastor at Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer.
Marjorie was a devoted pastor's wife and an active member of Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer, where she sang in the choir and volunteered to teach Sunday school as well as vacation Bible school. She was also a member of Lutheran Women's Missionary League and the Sanctuary Stewards. Marjorie regularly sewed quilts with a fun-loving group of women on Thursday mornings at the church. These quilts were then donated to Lutheran World Relief and other charitable organizations.
Marjorie was also involved with several other community groups that helped those in need. She enjoyed sewing, reading, and playing Scrabble. She was fortunate to travel with her husband to many foreign countries, some of which included Japan, Venezuela, Egypt, Israel, and Greece.
She is survived by seven children, Karen (Larry) Robbins, Lafollette, Tennessee; Mary (Bob) Hingst, Kokomo; Mike Muhl, Indianapolis, Indiana; Janine (Brad) Bagwell, Kokomo; Kathy (Kirk) Simon, Kokomo; Jim (Susan) Muhl, Indianapolis, Indiana; and Felicia (Justin) Hollingshead, Greencastle, Pennsylvania. She is also survived by 16 grandchildren, Eric (Anna) Hingst, Ann (Amit) Vyas, Chicago, Illinois; Sarah (Ryan) Showalter, Indianapolis, Indiana; Kayla, Tara, Brooke, and Jason Muhl, Noblesville, Indianapolis; Joseph (Allyson) Parker, Kokomo; Kyle (Breanna) Simon, Chattanooga, Tennessee; Andrea Simon, Arlington, Virginia; Mark Simon, San Marcos, Texas; Craig Simon, Paris, France; Lindsey (Mitch) Johnson, Elkhart, Indiana; Allie Muhl, Lexington, Kentucky; Derek Muhl, Chicago, Illinois; Lorraine (Josh) Hohl, Greencastle, Pennsylvania; four great-grandchildren; a sister, Marian Flowers; and a brother, William (Kathleen) Dannevik, St. Louis, Missouri; and many nieces and nephews.
Her husband, parents, a sister, Carolyn Dannevik, and two sons-in-law preceded Marjorie in death.
