Obituary for Marlene J. Lorenz

Marlene Jane Lorenz, age 82, of Plymouth, went home to her Lord and Savior on Thursday evening (March 9, 2017) at Rocky Knoll Health Care Facility.

She was born on April 27, 1934 in the Town of Russell, daughter of the late Sylvester and Augusta (Wolske) Buchman.

Marlene attended Bonnie View Grade School in the Town of Sheboygan Falls, and graduated from Plymouth High School in 1952.

In her freshman year of high school she met the love of her life, Bob Lorenz, and the two were always together. At her graduation party is when they announced their engagement, and on May 9, 1953, Marlene and Bob were united in marriage at Salem Plank Road U.C.C. in the Town of Sheboygan Falls.

She worked at the Plymouth Cheese Counter from 1974-1994.

Marlene enjoyed traveling with Bob to many states after they were retired. In the summer months, she loved being the Bob at their cottage on Shawano Lake. She also enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and babysitting them as they were growing up.

She is survived by: Her loving husband of 63 years: Bob of Plymouth; Two children: Lynell (Pete) Jenquin of Plymouth and Gary Lorenz of Plymouth; Three grandchildren: Jennifer (Cierra), Amber (Kristy), and Lauren; and Two sisters-in-law: Gloria Jean Buchman of New Holstein and Gladys (Charles) Hammen of the Town of Sheboygan Falls.

She is also survived by other relatives and friends.

Marlene was preceded in death by: Her parents; Mother-in-law: Lydia Lorenz-Weigel; Brother: James Buchman; and Five brothers-in-law.

Funeral Services will be held on Monday evening (March 13, 2017) at 6:00 P.M. at Salem United Church of Christ in Plymouth. Rev. James Hoppert, Pastor of the Church will officiate. Burial will be in the Plymouth Woodlawn Cemetery.

Visitation will take place at CHURCH on Monday (March 13) from 4:00 P.M. until the time of services.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund is being established in Marlene’s name for Salem United Church of Christ.

The family would like thank the entire staff at Rocky Knoll for the wonderful care and compassion given to Marlene.

“God saw she was getting tired and a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around her and whispered, “Come with Me.” With tearful eyes we watched her suffer and saw her fade away, Although we loved her dearly we could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped beating hard working hands to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.”
