Marcia Ann (Chartier) Russeau, 78, of Winona, died at home Tuesday, September 17, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer. Marcia was born on November 10, 1940, in Rice Lake, WI. She grew up in a restaurant that her parents owned until her father passed away. She married the love of her life, Darell Russeau, on June 21, 1958; they were married 61 years. They lived in Rice Lake until 1960 when they moved to Winona. Marcia was a housewife and raised four children.
Marcia Loved her family more than anything and enjoyed spending time with them. She had a green thumb and could grow anything. She loved being outdoors planting flowers, camping, fishing, and telling stories around the fire. She was a great baker and always made cookies and treats for Christmas. She was known for her baked beans which were requested by many. She loved going up north to their land in Lake Holcombe, WI with family and friends where many memories were made. She truly loved the Green Bay Packers and went to many training camps where they would take turns bringing the grandchildren regardless of their fandom. She also enjoyed going to bingo at St. Stan's to socialize and of course to win. She was a "professional garage saler." She always had her list ready for Friday garage sales. She knew every street in town.
