Obituary for Marjorie Mae Bechtel

Marjorie Mae Bechtel, 89, peacefully passed away on April 6th, 2022, at 4:25 p.m. at Independence Village Hospice.

She was born March 18th, 1933, in Peoria to Lamont and Cecilia B. (Huverstuhl) Ewing. She married Kenneth E. Bechtel on August 6th, 1955. They are survived by their four children – Diane (James) McMullan of Aurora, CO; Michael (Jackie) Bechtel of Lombard, IL; Gregory Bechtel of Peoria; and Beth Bechtel of Metamora, IL; four grandchildren—Brianna McMullan of Chicago,IL; Samantha Roberts of Morton, IL; Joshua Bechtel of Bloomington, IL; and Brendan McMullan of Aurora, CO; and eight great-grandchildren—Emma, Gracie, and Charlee Everly; Wyatt, Maggie, and Mollie Roberts; Kenlee and Leevi Bechtel-Toon; as well as many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband [2013], parents, and her brother and sisters (Dorothy Miller of East Peoria; Betty Nasses [2021] of Peoria; Robert Ewing of Peoria); as well as all of their spouses. She was the last member of the family from her generation.

Margie was a devoted and selfless wife and mother. Her life revolved around taking care of those around her. She was a patient and fun Mom and Grandma who enjoyed spending time with her family.

A gracious homemaker, she was sure to offer guests something to eat and truly wanted to hear about their day. Smart, kind, optimistic, funny – she will be deeply missed.

She was raised in the Catholic faith and was a graduate of Spalding Academy, in Peoria. Prior to her struggles with dementia, she was a member of St. Vincent DePaul Parish.

A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m., Monday, April 11th, 2022, at Wright & Salmon Mortuary, 2416 N. North St., Peoria, IL. Visitation will be immediately before services, at 9 a.m. Monday, April, 11th, 2022, also at the mortuary. Burial will be in Swan Lake Memory Gardens, 4601 W. War Memorial Dr., Peoria, IL.

Memorial contributions may be given to St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church.
