Marjorie F. Foss, 86, of Hampton died on Friday, November 24 at the Sheffield Care Center, in Sheffield, Iowa.

Marge was born in Kensett, Iowa, on September 19, 1931, the daughter of Almine Petersen Doyscher (Grosland) and Albert J. Doyscher. She was the middle child of three daughters: Helen, Marge and Dorothy and a half brother Jon Grosland. Marge was married to Duane W. Foss on October 24, 1952. In her early career she worked for Bell Telephone and later for the Glen Staley as his office manager. Marge and Duane owned Foss Oil Company for almost 30 years in Hampton. They operated a number of local gas stations (The Pumper), and a bulk delivery fuel service to homeowners, businesses and farmers in Franklin County. They also farmed near Hampton, with Marge in charge of accounts for both businesses.

Marge loved to garden, take care of her yard, make jam, attend a good auction or garage sale and to cook. She was an awesome seamstress who made beautiful clothes, Christmas stockings and other items for her family. She also made a mean cinnamon roll. She loved taking her grandkids to the creek on the farm to play and explore. She was famous in the family for having at least two of everything. She was a proud Dane whose grandparents emigrated from Denmark in the late 1800's.

Marge is survived by her husband of 65 years, Duane W. Foss; daughters Diane Foss and her husband, Mike Miller (Des Moines, IA); Darsi Foss and her husband, Matt Speer (Madison, WI); and grandchildren Tim Miller (Madison, WI), Kelsey Foss Speer (Philadelphia, PA), MacKenzie Foss Speer (Boston, MA), and Madison Foss Speer (Decorah, IA); cousins Sandy Boutelle, Kansas City, Frans Bay, Odense, Denmark; and nephews/niece Craig Peter, and Steve, Greg, Eric, Mark, Brick and Vicky Imerman.

Marge is preceded in death by her parents, her sisters Helen Imerman of Guthrie Center and Dorothy Peter of Roland and her half brother Jon Grosland.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date. Burial is planned in the Hampton, Iowa cemetery.
