Marie Stahl

Marie Stahl, age 83, of Huron, died peacefully at her home on Monday, August 27, 2007, after a 9 1/2 year battle with cancer. Her funeral liturgy was celebrated at 10 AM Thursday, August 30th at Holy Trinity Catholic Church with the Rev. Terry Anderson officiating. Burial was in the Restlawn Memory Gardens Cemetery with military rites by the Huron Veterans Council.

Katherine Marie Mullaney was born May 29, 1924, at Ree Heights, South Dakota to Bernard S. and Katherine A. (Hollihan) Mullaney. She graduated from Huron High School in 1942. Marie served in the US Coast Guard and was on special assignment with the Department of the Navy in New York City. She met Ruben Stahl while employed by the US Department of Agriculture in Huron and they were married November 23, 1949, at Brookings.

Marie was a member of the Holy Trinity Catholic Church, VFW Auxiliary, American Legion Auxiliary and HRMC Auxiliary. Marie’s greatest joy came from watching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren at their sporting events. Marie liked to spend her spare time gardening and baking. She enjoyed watching the Food Channel and then getting the recipes off the internet to make for her family. If you wanted a lively discussion just ask her about the latest episode of Survivor and the Amazing Race, you were in for a fun time.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband Ruben, on May 6, 2004; three brothers, Vince, Donald and Joseph Mullaney; sisters-in-law, Tillie Darland, Katie Dietrich and Jane Mullaney; brothers-in-law, Clarence Darland and Eric Dietrich.

Grateful for having shared her life are her daughter, Carolyn Stahl of Huron; three sons, Robert John (Kim) Stahl of Pierre, Ronnie D. (Becky) Stahl of Alton, Iowa, and David L. (Lorenda) Stahl of Huron; seven grandchildren, Jason, Amy, Kipp, Andrea, and Randy Stahl, and Jim and Renee Thomforde; and three great-grandchildren, Wesley, Allyson and Owen Larson; and brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Helmuth and Bernadine Stahl of Huron.
