Obituary for Marjorie "Marge" L. Rushmeyer

MARJORIE “MARGE” L. RUSHMEYER, 99, of Morrison, IL, died Tuesday, June 25, 2024, at Rock River Hospice & Home in Sterling, IL.


A memorial visitation will be held from 10:30 AM until the start of the service on Saturday, July 6, 2024, at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Morrison. Her memorial service will be held at 12:00 PM at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Morrison with Pastor Mike Winkleman, retired pastor and Rev. Chad Bolosan, pastor of Messiah Lutheran Church in Sterling, co-officiating. A private family graveside will be held at Our Savior Lutheran Cemetery in Sterling. A memorial has been established to God’s Will Giving Center.


Marge was born on August 26, 1924, in Rochelle, IL, to Earl and Florence (Cronk) Brown. She soon moved to Morrison, IL and was educated in Morrison schools, graduating class of 1942. In her junior year of high school, she met her soon to be husband Arthur O. Rushmeyer and they got married on April 9, 1944, spending their years living a wonderful life raising their four children on their farm in Morrison, IL.


They retired in Lyndon, IL and kept themselves busy. Marge enjoyed working for the Lyndon and Fenton Post Office and spent her time volunteering to many local businesses and organizations. She especially enjoyed her role as a Sunday school leader at Our Savior Lutheran Church in rural Sterling, IL. In 2000, she moved back to Morrison and was a member of Saint Peter’s Lutheran Church for many years. Her love for her family and Lord was evident through her life.

She found great joy in caring for her grandchildren as she spent most of her retired years looking after and keeping up with them. She will be most remembered by her words of wisdom over cookies and lemonade- whether it be cooking recipes, cleaning hacks, spiritual wisdom, or life advice.


She is proceeded in death by her parents, husband, daughter of nine months, Marla Jane Rushmeyer and one brother, Earl Brown, Jr. She is survived by her four children, John Rushmeyer of Potaskula, Ohio, Lyn (Ray) Meyers of Westmont, IL, Roger (Sherri) Rushmeyer of Luddington, MI, and Lisa (Daniel) Rinker of Morrison, IL. She is also survived by her beloved ten grandchildren, thirteen great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild.
