Marcia S. (McDonough) Henkes, 57, of Rushford, MN, formerly of Escanaba, MI, passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at Gundersen Medical Center in La Crosse, WI. She was born on May 3, 1961 to Patrick and Nancy McDonough. She married Robert Henkes on September 5th, 1982. They spent 36 wonderful years loving each other unconditionally.

Marcia spent many years running Bob’s family store in Escanaba, MI with her husband. Her favorite time there was spent talking with the customers and being a part of the community. She loved drawing, arts and crafts, and if she could trap you into a game of Rummy 500, where she was sure to win. She enjoyed spending time at the family lake house on Lake Michigan but most importantly, she enjoyed spending time with her two granddaughters and her family and friends.

Marcia is survived by her husband, Robert; daughters, Nicole (Matthew) Fromdahl and Lindsey Henkes (Douglas Horecka); two granddaughters, Makayla and Adelyn Fromdahl; 6 siblings, Pat, Tom, Kathy, Jeff, Kris, and Jason; and many other family and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Patrick and Nancy; and her parent-in-law’s, Russ and Irene Henkes; and brother in law, Ron Henkes.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the nurses, doctors, and medical staff for their time and dedication.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family are preferred.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at 4 PM, in the Prairie Room, at Coulee Region Cremation Group, 133 Mason St. Onalaska, WI, with visitation being held from 2PM until the time of the service. Pastor Ted Dewald will be officiating.

    Nicole and family, I wish to express my most sincere sympathy. Loss of a mother is the greatest loss I have ever experienced, so I can somewhat understand your pain. I pray God will be with you over these next weeks and help you at this time of loss.
