Marion Mathilda Zangel was born May 12, 1943 in New Ulm to David and Helen (Postel) Zangel. She was a 1961 graduate from Holy Trinity High School in New Ulm. On May 11, 1963, Marion was united in marriage to Gerald Scheibel at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in New Ulm. This union blessed the couple with five children whom together they raised in New Ulm where Marion worked her 33 year career with 3M. In her retirement, Marion shared her gifts in the kitchen at the Ye Olde Deli for five years and as a baker at Lola’s for three years. Besides her work, there were a variety of activities that brought her joy in life. Marion appreciated the outdoors, and especially loved spending time in her gardens. To relax, she enjoyed reading, doing puzzles, singing with the choir, or baking for her family. As an active member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, Marion was active in the CCW, and also sang with the Women of Song church choir. What she enjoyed the most in her life was her family and every moment she got to spend with them. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. Blessed be her memory.
