Marjorie May Brandenburg
August 04, 1924 - March 03, 2012

Storm Lake, Iowa

Marjorie Brandenburg, age 87, of Storm Lake, Iowa, died March 3, 2012, at the Buena Vista Regional Medical Center in Storm Lake.

Marjorie May was born August 4, 1924, in Mondamin, Iowa, the daughter of Reuben and Anna (Zaiser) Thomas. She attended school in Mondamin and graduated in 1941.

Following high school graduation, Marjorie worked for Howard Manufacturing Company in Council Bluffs, Iowa, during World War II, soldering parts on communication equipment for four years.

In 1947, she married Royce Siebels with whom she had three children: Roger, Marcia, and Lori. In 1948, they moved to Storm Lake and then to Des Moines in 1961. Marjorie and the three children moved back to Storm Lake in 1962, and she began a forty-three year career with the JCPenny Company. Although she enjoyed helping customers, she later worked in the company’s business office. Indeed, Marjorie loved working and taking care of customers so much that she worked until she was seventy-two, seven years past her retirement age.

On September 14, 1970, Marjorie married Fred Brandenburg. In her spare time, she enjoyed doing crossword puzzles. In addition, she loved all aspects of the natural world.

Forever attentive to her three children, as they were to her, Marjorie treasured and loved them unconditionally. Responding, her girls wrote endearing poems and notes to her that she forever cherished. She will indeed be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Those left to cherish her memory include her children: Roger Siebels, of Golden Valley, Arizona, Marcia Siebels, of Cypress, California, and Lori Siebels of Des Moines, Iowa; as well as extended family and many friends.

Marjorie was preceded in death by her husband, Fred Brandenburg, in 2003; her parents, Reuben and Anna Thomas; her sisters: Merna Thomas, Willa Barry, and Vera Sherman; her brother, Major Ivan Thomas; and one grandson, Bradley Wayne Siebels.
