Marjorie Ann Fortmann

February 5, 1944 — June 5, 2024

St. Charles, Missouri

Marjorie Fortmann (nee Boschert) passed away Wednesday, June 5, 2024, with her family by her side.  She was 80 years old.  Beloved wife of Karl Fortmann; cherished daughter of the late Clara and Ollie Boschert; devoted mother of Julie (the late Bill) Batzer, Kathy (Jose’ Mollura) Fortmann, Steve (Debbie) Fortmann and Angie (Gil) Santiago. Loving grandmother of Joe (Erin) Batzer, Clara (Colton) McCall, Maryann (Nick) Wells, Nate Santiago, Will Fortmann and Luke Santiago; loving great grandmother of Maisie Jane Batzer and expected great grandchild, Ashlynn Linda Wells coming in Septemberdear sister of Mick (Peggy) Boschert, Tom (Mary) Boschert, Dan (Betty) Boschert, Harvey (Barb) Boschert and Joan (Woody) Morris; dear sister-in-law of Dinah (Steve) Roeper; and is also survived by many nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.  Margie is preceded in death by her son-in-law, Bill Batzer and her great granddaughter Hazel Josephine Batzer.   

Margie graduated from Duchesne High School in 1962 and is a devoted and active member of St. Cletus Catholic Church, deeply cherishing her church and family.  She taught pre-school religion for many years and baby-sat for a number of children most of her life who she always treated as her own.  She loved children and loved being a “Mom” to anyone who would let her. 

She had many joys including talking with God, daily devotions, praying the rosary and attending Bible studies.  We often thought she had a direct line to God as her prayers always seemed to be answered in the order they were received.   

Married to Karl for 60 years, Margie was passionate about her family.  They enjoyed many summers boating and enjoying having family and friends gather at their lake house on Lake Table Rock near Lampe, Mo.  Her favorite activity was gathering everyone around the table and serving meals, always wanting to make sure they all had enough to eat Especially that “fried fish” that had just been caught by anyone visiting.  

Her caring for children did not end with her family and the ones she helped raise through baby-sitting.  She was also an active volunteer in “Youth In Need,” being awarded the Lawrence & Theo Boschert Distinguished Long-Term volunteer Service Award in  1993.  She embraced life fully and treasured the people around her.  As a two-time breast cancer survivor, Margie exemplified strength and resilience.  She was one tough cookie and looked upon the employees of the SSM Cancer Center as her family as well.  She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. 

Memorials may be made in Margie’s name to the Karen Weidinger Foundation or the Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood Foundation (SUDC).
