Obituary for Margaret Marie Mathwig

Margaret Marie Mathwig, 89, passed away in the care of her family on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at Edenbrook. Margaret was born August 16, 1929, in Fond du Lac, a twin daughter of Claude and Mabel (Fairbanks) Boudry. She graduated from Fond du Lac High School in 1947. On August 4, 1951, Margaret married Jim Mathwig, a Korean War veteran for the U.S. Army. He died too soon in 1972, leaving Margaret to raise four sons alone. She poured her heart into those boys, making the best of her time with them, and raising them to fear her authority. Margaret and her husband owned the Vice President Tavern for a decade or so, where she was affectionately known as Poopsie by her patrons. Margaret enjoyed traveling to Florida, where she spent most of her winters, and loved going to the casino.
Poopsie is survived by her sons: George (fiancé Shelley Krueger), Jim (Marie), Jeff (Jennifer) and Thomas Mathwig; grandchildren: Cindy, Nathan (Tamar), Jameson, Megan (Jake) Whitty, Justin, Jordan, Johannah, and Jaxon; great grandchildren: Aldrich Nichols, Kayla, Naomi, Lael, Gabriel Mathwig, and Harper and Owen Whitty; a sister, Grace Bates; other relatives and friends.
She was also preceded in death by her parents; a special friend, Orval Yops; a grandson, Spencer Mathwig; a great grandson, Elijah Whitty; brothers and sisters: Frank and Lawrence “Bud” Boudry, Lavern Malson, Viriginia Kairis, and her twin sister, Marjorie Pierce.
Visitation will be at the Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home-Eastside from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 13, 2018. Funeral services will follow with Rev. Tim Greenwald officiating. Interment will be in Lake View Memorial Park, Oshkosh.
Margaret’s family would like to express sincere gratitude to the staffs of Edenbrook and Generations Hospice for their loving care and compassion.
