Clayton County Register, Wed., 27 Feb. 1974.

Monona: Marion Haefner Leimbach, eldest daughter of Louis and Julia Klotzbach Haefner, was born in Giard, Iowa, on August 29, 1896. She died at Memorial Hospital in Prairie du Chien, Wis., after a lengthy illness, on February 15, 1974.

She attended the public school near Froelich. While she was still a child her parents, sisters and a brother moved to Bainville, Montana, but she remained with her two aunts who had grown very fond of her, and so she spent most of her adult life in this area.

Early in 1940 she met, corresponded with, and then married Will Leimbach, a World War I Navy veteran, and at that time a chief engineer on Lake boats and also a part of the Coast Guard. He had been an occasional visitor of her Uncle Henry. They spent several winters in Florida, on his small farm there, but in the early spring of 1943, Mr. Leimbach succumbed to a heart attack in Cleveland, Ohio.

Marian then returned to the farm near Giard and kept house for her uncle and cousin until frail health caused her to move to a small apartment in McGregor where she had been for the last 15 years. On December 30, 1973 her landlady, Mrs. Edith McCauley found her in critical health so the Rescue Squad was called and she was taken to Memorial Hospital in Prairie du Chien.

Marian was a member of Bluff City Chapter Number 268, Order of Eastern Star of McGregor.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Will, and a sister Lois of Bainville, Mont.

She leaves to remember her, two sisters, Maude Haefner Hilton, Bainville, Mont., and Marguerite (Mrs. Justus) Jern, Spokane, Wash.; two brothers, Charles Haefner, Bainville, Mont., and Duward Haefner, Spokane, Wash.; two nieces, one nephew, other relatives and friends.

Eastern Star services were held at Schultz' Funeral Home Tuesday, Feb. 19, 1974. Services were conducted by Reverend Raymond W. Pacholke at Schultz' Funeral Home Tuesday, February 19, at 10:30 a.m.
