Marge Reinke of Port Edwards, Wisconsin passed away Tuesday afternoon after battling biliary cancer. Marge was a long time member of the Wisconsin Working Stock Dog Association. She was a tireless volunteer, working where ever she was needed at the club trials. She will be missed by many people.

If your dog is overweight, you're not getting enough exercise.

My condolences to her family and friends. She looks like she was having the time of her life in that photo.

I'm very sorry to hear this, didn't even realize she was sick. I'll miss seeing and talking to her at the trials. I really enjoyed her and she was one of the WI crew that is such givers to the dogs and handlers. Thanks for letting us know Laura.

Marjorie Reinke, 70, of 3501 Ver Bunker Avenue, Port Edwards, died Wednesday July 14, 2010, at her home.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday at Trinity Lutheran Church in Port Edwards. Friends may call from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday at the church.

Feldner/Ritchay Funeral Home is assisting the family. A complete obituary will run in the Friday edition of the Daily Tribune.

She was diagnosed with the cancer in December and was feeling pretty good up until May. Then it was up and down & even though her appearance changed, she always sounded like Marge when we were talking. She came home from her last hospital stay last week and all 5 of her kids were there and had a small party for her. I saw her Saturday and it was a wonderful visit with lots of family and friends there. She was teasing, laughing and having a good time with all the attention from everyone. More of her friends were there Sunday and that was a pretty good day too.

Marge will be sorely missed by many people. I can't imagine how hard it's going to be to host clinics and trials without her.

Marge will be missed immensely. She was always ready to lend a helping hand and was always around. We will all miss her at the trials this year.
