Marjorie Rae Rogstad, age 74, of Eau Claire, passed away from natural causes on Thursday, June 14, 2018 at her home surrounded by family.  

Marjorie was born on July 7, 1943 to the late Michael and Claire (Bluma) Kewan in Milwaukee, WI. She graduated from Regis High School; went on to attend and graduate from Alverno College in Milwaukee. She was an avid piano player since the age of 6. She loved jazz performing as "Marji Rae" with Conrad Johns and also with many other area musicians. Marjorie played for many years at Stafne's and gained many fans. She brought joy to many others through her love of music and life. She also was a transcriptionist at Midelfort Clinic for 15 years.

She is survived by her son, Mark Koshoshek of Eau Claire; sister, Nancy (Leo) Meier of Bloomer; brother, Thomas (Gene) Kewan of Eau Claire; step-brother, David Kejwan of Oconomowoc, WI; and many nieces, nephews, and step family members that will miss her greatly.

Marjorie was preceded in death by her husband, John Rogstad and son, Jason Koshoshek.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Mayo Clinic Health System Hospice, Oakwood Hills Retirement Community and Evergreen Funeral Home.

Honoring a life with a meaningful service is an important step in the grief process and is a gift to their family and friends —
a gift of memories and a gift of healing
