Marie Ruth Tegge, 98, of Holland, PA, passed away peacefully on August 14, 2021, at Neshaminy Manor in Warrington, PA. She was the loving wife to the late Robert A. Tegge, Sr. They were married on December 25, 1942, and shared sixty-three years of marriage. They raised their two children in Croydon, PA, before relocating to Quakertown, PA, to spend time with their grandchildren.
Born in Philadelphia, PA, she was a daughter of the late Carl and Mary "Mae" (Williams) Kraeuter.
Marie worked at John Stetson Hat Company in Philadelphia, helped out at the family deli and eventually followed her husband to Salt Lake City, Utah, where she worked as a secretary on the Army base.
One of her passions was sewing. She could look at someone and sew them an outfit without even having a pattern. She loved attending ceramic classes, going to the casinos, bingo, word search books, puzzles and family picnics. Marie loved her family immensely and would tell you often how lucky she was to be able to watch her grandchildren grow but even luckier to be alive to see her three great grandchildren.
Marie has touched the lives of so many with her unconditional love, generosity and kindness.
Surviving are her children: Robert "Bob" A. Tegge, Jr. and Doris Mae Bowen; Grandchildren: Adrienne, Robbie and Joseph; and Great-Grandchildren: Jaxson, Kayna, and Aaron; Nephews: Donald, Leonard, Glen, Carl, Stephen and Mark; Nieces: Debbie and Darlene. She was predeceased by siblings: Carl, Harriet, Florence, Esther, Doris and her daughter-in-law JoAnn.
Marie will be laid to rest with her husband on October 18, 2021, at Fort Indiantown Gap National Cemetery.
