Margaret "Peg" Alice Dehne

December 12, 1923 — January 26, 2022

Margaret Alice (Peg) Dehne passed peacefully and was born into eternal life on January 26, 2022 at 98 years of age.  She was born December 12, 1923 in Hubertus, WI to Henry J. Stephan and Martha (Kiley) Stephan. Peg attended Plat Elementary School and graduated from Menomonee Falls High School in 1941. She moved from the family farm to Milwaukee, WI and was employed in secretarial work at Allis Chalmers Mfg. Co. Throughout her life she remained a farm girl that loved the simple things in life.  God and family were always her guiding beacons. 

Peg married Howard (Howie) G Dehne on June 30, 1951 at Holy Hill Basilica St. Mary's of the Hill. After their marriage they resided in Oshkosh, WI at Sandy Beach Ln. on the west shore of Lake Winnebago. They were blessed with three beautiful children (Stephen, Scott, and Sue). After raising their children, Peg went to work for Square D Company for 13 years as an Administrative Desk Manager. Her casual use of ‘shorthand’ for taking notes was a topic of conversation for years. Howard and Peg enjoyed many happy times together for 49 ½ years. Sadly, Howard passed away on December 11, 2000.  

Peg enjoyed many hobbies throughout her life, including rosemaling, ceramics, quilting and playing board games. She always loved a game of 5-handed Sheepshead, Guesstures, Catch Phrase, Eye-to-Eye and Apples-to-Apples. Whenever there was a family gathering, at some point you would hear Peg saying “let’s play a game!” She had a beautiful singing voice and sang solo at many high school pep meetings and sang the lead in her high school operetta.  She loved to swim and unbeknownst to her mother, swam across Freiss Lake and back, a tribute to her CAN DO attitude. She and Howie loved to entertain, creating countless memories of summer fun at their home on Lake Winnebago serving bar-b-que chicken, a full array of salads, and plenty of Bloody Marys, Summer Hummers, and beer. Every holiday was a time for Peg to create a memorable family experience. She and Howie loved having family gatherings at the lake.  

Peg will be lovingly remembered by all who knew her, especially her children Stephen (Susan) Dehne, Scott Dehne, Sue (Paul) Hopper and her grandchildren Michelle (William) Parmentier, Curtis Dehne, Kevin (Rachel) Dehne, Amber (Drew) Baillon, Michael Dehne, Mark (Emily) Hopper, Matthew Hopper and great-grandchildren Xavier, Max and Connor Parmentier, Mallory and Callista Baillon, Zarah and Aliza Dehne, Nora and Milo Dehne, and Mia Hopper. 

Surviving her is sister-in-law Suzanne Stephens (Waukesha), and many nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death were her parents Henry J. Stephan and Martha (Kiley) Stephan, brothers Don Stevens (Maggie), Harold Stephan, Bill Stephan (Mary Catherine), and Bob Stephens, as well as daughter-in-law, Susan Dehne.
