Marie Elsie Diercks was born Oct. 3, 1925, in the town of York, rural Clark County, to William and Clara (Zickert) Diercks and attended area schools. She was united in marriage to Herbert Hinkelmann on Oct. 21, 1945, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Loyal. They farmed in Loyal for many years until selling the farm to their son, Harlan, in 1983. Marie and Herbert had a true partnership on the farm as they raised their five children and farmed. "Family" meant everything to them and was their first consideration in all they did. 

In her spare time, Marie loved to bake, garden, can, quilt and embroider. She was an active member of her church, Trinity Lutheran, being involved in adult fellowship, the quilting circle and teaching Sunday School for many, many years. She was also a member of the Trim 'n Tidy Homemakers Club.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Herbert, on May 7, 1997; one great-grandchild, Gabriel Beehn; and one sister, Vera Drescher. 

The family requests that memorials be directed to Trinity Lutheran Church, 201 N. West St., Loyal WI 54446, in Marie's memory.
