Obituary for Marjorie (Blahnik) Bake

Marjorie (Blahnik) Bake, 86 of Oconto passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on March 17, 2012. Marjorie was born on April 3, 1925 in Lena to Clarence and Marie (Valley) Blahnik.

One memorable and exciting moment for her was a hole-in-one at the Oconto Golf Course on August 23, 1996, where she golfed regularly with her friends in the ladies golf league. In addition to golfing, she enjoyed playing bridge, reading, gardening, solving all the puzzles in the daily newspaper, and following the Packers, Brewers, Badgers, and Oconto Blue Devils.
