Margaret “Marty” Catherine Jenuwine Wizner, age 92, of Ripon, WI, passed away on Sunday, June 25, 2023 at Prairie Place in Ripon.

Marty was born to Sylvester and Agnes Jenuwine on June 14, 1931, in Warren, Michigan. She graduated from Warren High School, then continued her education in nursing at Nazareth Nursing School in Kalamazoo, MI.

The two married on August 25, 1956, in Ripon. Together they had four beautiful children.

Marty had a passion for collecting pins and broaches. It didn’t matter whether they were big or small; she labeled them with the date and location where they were purchased. She also enjoyed sewing, painting, reading and cooking. She was a very accomplished pianist. Marty always encouraged her family to try new foods. Her Polish dish was famous at family gatherings. She was a proud member of the Church Women United and the Alter and Rosary Society.
