Marjorie Tuthill Obituary

We regretfully announce the passing of Marjorie Jane Tuthill of Dubuque, Iowa on Sunday, March 17, 2024. She was with her husband and passed away peacefully. She will be cremated and buried in Lattnerville Catholic Cemetery in Lattnerville, Iowa. There are no events planned as she did not wish to have services. Her family will celebrate her life in private.

Marge was a strong and kind woman and our family was blessed to have her as a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was born on June 12, 1940 to Magdalene and Leo J. Goetzinger and grew up in Graf, Iowa. She had a green thumb, loved to draw and paint, and in her younger days she enjoyed hiking and hunting in the woods surrounding the family home in Graf.

In 1958 she married Carl Tuthill and together they went on to have 6 children. Marge was a wonderful and loving woman who gave her all to her family. We will never be able to fill the space left behind by her.

Marge was predeceased by her twin sons Scott Tuthill and Darran Tuthill; her parents, Leo J. & Magdalene Goetzinger; her three sisters, Linda (Art) Berger, Gerry (Ed) Fleming and Elizabeth Ann (Merlin) Conrad; her five brothers, Leo John, Gene (Betty), James, Darrel (Shirley) & Robert Gene Goetzinger.
