Marcia L. Blaschka

February 21, 1945 — December 12, 2023

Marshfield

Marcia L Blaschka, age 78, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, December 12, 2023, at Marshfield Medical Center in Marshfield, WI. She was born on February 21, 1945, in Wausau WI to Wilbur and Marie Vachowiak. She graduated from Wausau High School before marrying the love of her life, Walter Blaschka, on June 20, 1963. Throughout her life she worked in customer service, most notably childcare and food service. She continued to work into earlier this year as she sincerely enjoyed her work and the people she met along the way. Marcia truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; chatting with friends and family whom she loved fiercely, going out to eat, loving on her pets, and watching her grandbabies and great-grandbabies grow. Marcia had an astonishing ability to reach people in a deep and positive way and her sassy spirit and contagious laugh will be missed by many. 

Marcia is survived by her partner, Robert Libke; daughter, Carmen Kollpainter; daughter, Roxanne Loy; son, Duane (Gina) Blaschka; grandchildren Amanda Loy, Benjamin Loy, Danielle (John) Runnoe, Zachary Kollpainter; great-grandchildren Dylan, Bentley, Jordan, Jase, Amelia, Ava, and Nicholas; sister, Emily (Elwyn) Zimmermann; sister, Karen (Delano) Kroeplin; sister, Mary Witt; sister, Beverly Searvogel; and her loving dog, Buddy. 

Marcia is preceded in death by her husband, Walter Blaschka; parents, Wilbur and Marie Vachowiak; and brother, Norman Vachowiak.
