Margaret “Maggie” Wiener, 90, Green Bay, passed away at home in the arms of her family Monday, March 14, 2022.
Maggie was born November 15, 1931, to the late Leonard and Katherine Liebergen in Wrightstown, WI. As a child, she was either known by her nickname Muggsie or Blackie, the latter nickname reflecting her beautiful blue, black hair. After graduating from Green Bay East High, she worked at the Green Bay Press-Gazette and later on as a buyer at Pranges and as a bookkeeper and computer specialist for Family Practice Associates. In June of 1952, she met her future husband when he saw her through the window of the Green Bay Press-Gazette and actively sought her out. On July 19, 1952, she married the love of her life Gerald Wiener after a six-week romance.
She was an independent spirit and was not afraid to speak her mind on things that she believed deeply in. Maggie experienced many challenges in her life, but she persevered with a resolute and determined spirit. And yet above all else, Maggie cherished her children with a deep yet objective and enduring love. Maggie enjoyed singing and was a member of the Angels performance group for many years and the choir at St. Matthews Church. She also enjoyed knitting, reading, walking, camping, traveling and having Friday perch at Ziggeys. Maggie, along with her late husband, made numerous trips to Las Vegas where she enjoyed the shows and playing the slot machines. After retirement, she volunteered at Bellin Hospital.
Maggie is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Julie and Thomas Dombrowicki; one son and daughter-in-law, Richard and Valerie; four grandsons, Joel (Susie), Jason (Lisa), Derek and Spencer; four great grandchildren, Kaden, Keirsten, Killian and Emma; as well as nieces, nephews and other relatives. She also leaves behind her beloved dog and dearest companion, Molly.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Jerry; three sons, Daniel, Timothy and David; her daughter in-law, Dawn; two sisters, Gloria Klaus and Mary Millonig; and her brother, John Liebergen.
