James F. “Jim” Marcheske


Jim F. Marcheske, age 74, of Stockbridge, was reunited in heaven with his wife, Judy, his parents, Walter and Martha, and many other family members and friends on May 7, 2019. He was born in Oconto Falls on December 28, 1944.

For the majority of his working years, Jim owned a dairy farm in Menasha. After Judy passed away, he took classes in horticulture and he worked in the landscaping industry. He enjoyed planting all sorts of flowers and trees. He had a love for all animals, especially horses. Jim was very spontaneous and took many road trips, driving to wherever the drive took him. He loved visiting different gardens and traveling all the roads he was not down before. Jim’s big heart, sense of humor and his pranks will be deeply missed.

Jim is survived by his daughter, Jennifer Marcheske; son, Jeff (Anita) Marcheske; grandchildren: Jacob and Sarah Marcheske; and his significant other, Carole Wolf.

Jim was preceded in death by his wife, Judy Marcheske and his parents, Walter and Martha (Edler) Marcheske.
