Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Margaret Julia "Marge" Kutzke, age 93, of Gowen, passed away early Saturday morning, April 18, 1015 at Twin Oaks Retirement Home in Gowen.  The daughter of Victor & Julia (Lennew) Debie, she was born on December 4, 1921 in Essexville. 

Marge had been a member of Spencer Mills Orthodox Presbyterian Church, where she volunteered in the church's food pantry ministry and also was the "cookie lady" for the fellowship time following services.  She enjoyed traveling…  especially trips to Florida and Hawaii, as well as day trips to the casino.  With her late husband, she enjoyed riding motorcycles and had been a member of the Ladies Home Extension. 

She was preceded in death by her parents;  two infant sons;  her husband, Earl Kutzke;  and two sisters, Elizabeth and Mary.

Surviving are her son, Edmund "Ed" & Karen Stalinski of Windsor, Ontario;  four grandchildren, Debbie Gibbs of Grand Rapids, Roger Stalinski of Ocala, Florida, Brenda & Steve Wilson of Rockford, and Janene Howland of East Grand Rapids;  four great grandchildren, Jeremy Gibbs, Katy Gibbs, Sabrina Frazee,  and Alex Frazee;  special friends, Maxine & Gilbert Christophersen of Gowen;  and many other dear friends.

Honoring her wishes, no services will be held.  Instead of flowers, contributions in memory of Marge are suggested to the Food Pantry at Spencer Mills Church.  To send a message of sympathy to the family, sign Marge's online guest book, or to share a favorite memory, please visit:  Arrangements were entrusted to Christiansen Cremation & Funeral Care, Greenville.

    Sorry about your mom. I know it is like loosing A part of you. That is how I felt when your Aunt Mary died. Del and I took care of her for A long time before she passed. I couldn’t visit her because of my many back surgeries, but still kept in touch with her.

    Give my regards to Karen and family. Your cousin Alice
