Marguerite Stephan

d. April 14, 2024

I,  Marguerite F. Stephan passed away on April 14, 2024, at the tender age of 89 after a courageous battle with beauty and sarcasm.   I hope I was as glamorous in death as I was in life!  I was predeceased by my loving and generous parents Margaret and Frank Kluka, as well as my cherished son, Darryl James.  I am survived by my three wonderful daughters Allison Ann, Madeleine Marie, and Caroline Christine.  The name alliteration was intentional for clever monograms.  I also leave behind a sister, Mary Ann, who I lovingly bullied as a child. She learned at an early age that bird droppings were not really peppermint flavored.  I’m not sure why we weren’t closer.  

I found enjoyment in my favorite things - playing Bridge, drinking tea, watching Turner Classic Movies, shopping for hours on end, and wearing the most smashing shade of Clinique lipstick, Golden Brandy.  I hope I can find a similar hue in the afterworld!

To my six beautiful grandchildren, Michelle, Marissa, Maxwell, Jackson, Carson, and Kenton, I have inadvertently taught you how to swear. Please remember to only use profanity if you are truly passionate about something.  Using expletives as adjectives in every sentence is simply gauche! 

To my dear friends Marilyn, Marjory, and George, I’ll see you on the other side.  Take your time. I’ll be the one wearing a fig leaf. 

I have requested that private graveside services be held at a later date because I think funerals are depressing and let’s be honest, no one looks good in a coffin!

If this obituary offends you, lighten up!  I was voted most humorous of Barberton High School, Class of 1953!
