Margaret "Margie" (Campbell) Heinsohn Dehnke, age 78, after a long struggle with Dementia, went to rest in the loving arms of Jesus on Friday, April 9, 2021 surrounded by her close family at the Homeplace in Mondovi, WI.
Margie was born on September 25, 1942 to the late Vernon and Lillian (Heeg) Campbell in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. She was a graduate of Memorial High School in Eau Claire and attended CVTC for bookkeeping. She was married twice, first to David Heinsohn in 1963 and then to Herman Dehnke (later divorcing).
She enjoyed careers in home healthcare for Eau Claire and Buffalo Counties, accounting at the American Lutheran Home, retiring as the assistant to the director of maintenance at Marten Transport. Following retirement Margie generously gave of her time talent and resources in supporting the after-school care program, for children at MCYC. Margie volunteered at many church and community events over the years.
Margie was an accomplished cook, event planner, seamstress, crochet master, and quilter. She enjoyed teaching and encouraging children more than anything. Margie was an avid reader; listening to 100's of books on tape in her later years. Her dear pet companion, "Polly," was with her for 17 years.
She is survived by her daughters, Dana Hainer of Rochester, MN, Nancy (Cory) Prissel of Chippewa Falls, Michelle (Scott) Mann of Eau Claire, Diane Martin (Doug Rennich) of Mondovi; many cherished grandchildren, great-grandchildren, sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews, and other family members and friends.
Margie was preceded in death by three infant brothers, Peter, Daniel, and John; brother-in-law, Harold Bergeron.
Margie's family would like to extend special thanks to the staff at The Homeplace, Heartland Hospice and Evergreen Funeral Home.
