Marion M. (nee Draves) Mischka, age 77 of Wautoma, peacefully completed her journey to her Savior’s arms on October 13, 2021 with her family by her side.

Marion worked several years in the Wautoma School cafeteria, in addition to farming, gardening and ultimately her favorite job of being Grammy to her 3 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter, who could never get enough of their Grammy.
Marion was very compassionate, giving and caring, and never ever wanted any spotlight on her. She had a very deep faith which carried her through difficult times in life. She was a member of Peace Lutheran Church.
