Turkey Valley Pays Tribute To Marilyn Hageman


Listed below is a copy of the Obituary for Marilyn C. Hageman as printed from the Hugeback-Johnson website.


Obituary for Marilyn C. Hageman

Marilyn Nolte Hageman, age 70, of Lawler,Chickasaw County, Iowa died January 13, 2015 at Winneshiek Medical Center in Decorah. 

The cause of death was Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, which was diagnosed in February 2013, and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia which was diagnosed and treated repeatedly since 1996. There will be no local services. 

Marilyn was born on May 16, 1944, at the New Hampton, Iowa hospital. On June 11, 1966 she married Leonard Hageman in Waucoma, Iowa. Marilyn was an employee of the Turkey Valley Community Schools for over four decades, retiring in 2006. She served in a host of educational roles throughout her career, but none as important as working with students. 

Survivors include her husband, Leonard; a daughter, Dr. Kathy Hageman of Atlanta, GA; a son, Dan (Chris) of Charles City, Iowa and their three children, Nick, Caleb, and Rylee. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Alois and Catherine Korsendorfer Nolte. 

Marilyn also wished that no memorial contributions be given. Instead, she asked that friends and family support their local school in any manner possible-from donating to volunteering, from supporting student activities to meeting classroom needs, from attending parent-teacher conferences to attending graduation, and to contributing to the breadth and depth of their education.       

Thank you to all who have contacted us in regards to memorials and contributions for Marilyn Hageman.  As Marilyn stated in her obituary, she wanted no memorial contributions to be given, yet Turkey Valley Community School has had numerous inquiries for a tribute in her memory

Mrs. Hageman spent long and meaningful hours at Turkey Valley.  She walked through the doors daily knowing that the students needed her.  She was here because she was a Trojan through and through and her pride in this school and her passion for teaching was contagious.  The work she did within the walls of her classroom and outside in the community is immeasurable.  Marilyn’s love and loyalty went far beyond teaching, and the memories of her shine as examples of what it means to be a Trojan. 

In memory of Marilyn, Turkey Valley would like to place a bench by the junior/senior high entrance. The staff will take up a collection to fund the bench.  If you wish to donate to the bench, you may send a check made payable to Turkey Valley School. Please note on the memo line:  Hageman bench donation. 

If you would like to give back to Turkey Valley school per Marilyn’s wishes, please send checks made payable to Turkey Valley.  Please note on the memo line: Hageman school donation. 

If there is money left from the bench fund, it will transfer over to the “school donation.”  Checks and donations that have been received thus far will be added to the Hageman school donation fund.   

Marilyn played an important part in shaping the lives of all she encountered, and for that reason, many people feel a strong commitment to Turkey Valley and all that she stood for.  We THANK YOU for your donations.  Our deepest sympathies to Marilyn’s family.  Thank you Marilyn!
