Marie was born on Aug. 19, 1915, in Barton, to Joseph and Frances (nee
Halamka) Kachelmeier. She was one of 10 children and her family owned
and operated the Kachelmeier Bakery, in Slinger, for many years.
On May 14, 1940, she married Nicholas Buch at St. Peterís Catholic
Church, Slinger. Together, they raised their family, operated Standard
Auto Service, and shared their lives until Nickís death on Feb. 5, 1977.
Most of Marieís life was spent as a Slinger resident, but her later
years were lived outside of Wisconsin, in Madison, Ala. She was a
talented writer, something she pursued throughout her life, and was

spirit, and caring ways will be missed by all who loved her.
