The Lord called the soul of Marvin Demulling home to Heaven on Jan. 22, 2022. Marvin died peacefully at Frederic Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Frederic. He was 91.

He was a lifelong member of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, Osceola, where he was baptized, confirmed, and married.

Marvin was born Nov. 23, 1930, in East Farmington Township. He was raised with three siblings in a very loving German family. He attended Oak Lawn County School through the eighth grade. When he started in the first grade, he only spoke German. He spent all of his young life on the family farm. In 1948, Marvin met the love of his life Lois Steffen. They married on Nov. 25, 1950. They were blessed with five children, 10 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren, with one more arriving soon in February, and four great-great-grandchildren. Marvin loved his family unconditionally. He always looked forward to and enjoyed the many family gatherings over his lifetime. Martin had a passion for serving the Lord and his church. He served as a church councilman, choir member for many years, and a handyman/groundskeeper. He was a wonderful mentor and role model for his family.

Marvin worked as a farmer and bus driver. He also owned his own retail/wholesale dairy product delivery service from 1955-1985. He continued to be a truck driver for various companies until his retirement. During retirement, he enjoyed camping, woodworking, and mowing lawns with his precious John Deere. He enjoyed attending numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren’s various school and sporting activities. Marvin was rarely found resting. He was always busy using his many talents and gifts.
