Marceine Mae Orgas (nee Hammel)


July 13, 1931 - Sept. 11, 2012       



Marceine Mae Orgas (nee Hammel) of Mukwonago was reunited with her husband, Edward Orgas, on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012, at the age of 81. She was born in South Dakota, spent her childhood in California, then high school and the remainder of her life was spent in Wisconsin.


She enjoyed traveling with her close friends, and spending many cold January weeks on the beach in Fort Meyers Beach, Fla., with her husband. Marceine was an avid reader, enjoyed watching old movies, spending time with friends and was a gourmet cook. The best days were simple days spent in the backyard with family, grilling and swimming, and dining as an aficionado at local restaurants.    


She is the loving mother of Gary Orgas, Ellen (Bruce) Leggett, Joy (Scott) Reeves and Duane (Susan) Orgas; proud grandmother of nine grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. She is further survived by other relatives and friends.  


She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward Orgas; her parents, Allen and Hazel Hammel; and her brother and sister-in-law, Dale (Virginia) Hammel.
