Obituary for Marvel L. Siebenaler

Marvel Louise Siebenaler, age 99, of Shakopee, entered eternal life on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, at Friendship Manor Nursing Home in Shakopee.

Marvel was born in Dayton Township, MN, on September 19, 1919, the daughter of Joseph and Lillian (Bourgeois) Berg. She married former Mayor Raymond Siebenaler on May 23, 1940 in Shakopee.

Marvel loved life, enjoyed parties and being with groups of family and friends. She loved bringing people together, and had a great sense of humor. She enjoyed gardening until she was in her 80s, and loved to can vegetables. Marvel was a card player, and regularly played pflume with family and friends. She made some of the best chocolate chip cookies, and loved to share them!

She and Ray owned the Pelham Hotel in downtown Shakopee. She was also active as the past President of both the Shakopee American Cancer Society, and V.F.W. Ladies Auxiliary.

Marvel was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond; and seven siblings.

She is survived by her children, John (Rae), Charles and Cynthia (Steven) Kendall; seven grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren; sister, Lillian Rau.
