Marguerite “Marge” Selig, age 89, of Winneconne, died Sunday, December 12, 2021, at home with her grandchildren and great-granddaughter by her side. She passed peacefully, fully knowing it was time to join the many family members that had preceded her and her Savior, Jesus Christ.

She was born May 10, 1932, in Appleton Wisconsin to Joseph Schiltz and Hildred (Brainard) Schiltz. Marge married Larry Selig on December 1, 1951. She lived, worked, and raised their three children in Appleton, WI. She had several jobs over the years including being both a pharmacy technician and volunteer at Appleton Medical Center. 

After retiring, Marge and Larry built their dream home by Lake Poygan near Winneconne. They enjoyed traveling across much of the U.S. with their favorite spots being Yellowstone National Park and Walt Disney World. She was a devout member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Winneconne and volunteered many hours at the church and with the Winneconne Women’s Civic League. 

Marge was an avid wildlife watcher at her home by the lake. She had multiple bird feeders that would be visited by hundreds of birds daily along with squirrels, deer, and racoons. She could quickly identify many of the local species of birds and would spend hours simply watching them. One of her favorites was the cardinals with their bright red plumage. 

She was preceded in death by her husband, Larry Selig; sister, Billie Nickles; and daughter, Lynn Murray.

Marge is survived by her children, Cyn Selig, of Portland, Oregon; and Cal Selig with his wife Stephanie, of Fort Collins, Colorado; her grandchildren, Kristi, Brian and his fiancé Brent, Amelia, and Conrad; and her great-granddaughter, Bella. She had two wonderful feline companions whom she loved dearly and preceded her in death, Mitzi and Sami. 

Cremation has taken place and a visitation will be on Tuesday, January 4, 2022, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Mueller Funeral Home. A vigil service will be held on Tuesday at 7:00 at the funeral home led by Deacon Paul Vidmar. Visitation will continue on Wednesday, January 5 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. at St. Mary Catholic Church. A funeral Mass will be held on Wednesday at 11:00 at the church with Fr. Tom Long and Deacon Paul Vidmar officiating. Interment will be in Highland Memorial Park, Appleton.

We love you and will miss you.

My sympathy to Marge's family. I bowled with Marge in the Wednesday Morning Flower Garden League at Marble Park Lanes in Winneconne. She was a good bowler and a lot of fun. When you hear thunder from heaven just imagine she has just bowled a strike!

My condolences to the family of Marquerite Selig. You don't me but I know you because I have done genealogy history on my husband, Tom Selig for years. To do so I had to do the other Selig family from Durkee St. many years ago. To know which family you belong to have to know if you are from the Plumber family or the Fireman family. You are from the plumber family from Johann Christoph Jochim Selig born January 20, 1819 in Germany and died October 28, 1892. Some where back in Germany the two Seligs might be related. I just wanted to share with you the Selig history. I belong to Ancestry but I don't have any of my 8 family trees in there. Take care and be safe, Jeanne

My deepest condolences to Marge's family. What a special lady. She was a dear friend to my mother and they played many games of cards together--Phase 10 was a favorite of theirs. I like to think they are shuffling the cards right now for another game in heaven. Marge, I wish I could bring you one more chocolate shake.
