Marvin Litscher


Marvin Litscher, 77, of Independence, passed away peacefully, Tuesday, August 2, 2022, at Lake Hallie Memory Care in Chippewa Falls.

Marvin was born October 25, 1944, in Arcadia, to Norbert and Genevieve (Wolfe) Litscher. He grew up on a farm in Fountain City. Marvin married Diane Servais, May 14, 1966, in Fountain City, and the couple farmed together in rural Independence until retirement. Marvin enjoyed deer hunting, fishing, woodworking and gardening. He also liked to go on long walks with his dog, Marlo. Marvin loved spending time with his family and friends. Whenever Marvin was present, there was sure to be joy and laughter as he was always telling jokes.

He was a member of Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church and the Buffalo County Farm Bureau Federation.

Marvin is further survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Diane; brother-in-law, Robert Putz; and several nieces and nephews.

A private Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Independence, with burial in the church cemetery. All family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Life, August 8, 2022, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at the Litscher Shed, located at S1369 Matchey Road, Independence.
