     MARY L. JENNEJOHN, age 85, of Lublin, WI, passed away on Friday, December 25, 2020 at Aspirus Hospice House in Wausau, WI.  Per Mary's request, no services will be held.
     Mary Lou Whittenberger was born on September 19, 1935 in Ladysmith, WI, the daughter of Charles L. and Opal L. (Stockberger) Whittenberger, Sr., where she was raised and received her education.  Mary was united in marriage to George A. Ewer on January 28, 1952 in Ladysmith, WI.  They resided in the Holcombe, WI area until George's death on February 6, 1970.  She then held various jobs to raise her children.  Mary met Harold W. Jennejohn while working at A&P Enterprises and they were married on December 22, 1973 in Neillsville, WI.  They resided south of Thorp for a few years and she was the Tupperware lady, before moving to Bella Vista, AR in 1981.  Mary worked at Tyson Foods in Bentonville, AR and went back to school to earn her GED.  After retiring from Tyson Foods, they moved to the Lublin, WI area where they did upholstery work and enjoyed spending time together fishing.
     She was dedicated to taking care of her family.  Mary was kind-hearted, stubborn, and had huge gardens, where she canned so much food her basement was like a fallout shelter.  Mary loved to watch birds and wildlife that would come to her feeders.  Anytime someone would visit, she had to walk them through the yard to all of her flower beds.  She truly did have a green thumb and a heart of gold.
     Mary is survived by her husband, Harold, of Thorp;  8 children: Juanita Jerome of Chippewa Falls, Peggy (Paul) Senn of Cadott, Charles Ewer (Lori Carrillo) of Marshfield, Pattie Klapatauskas of Hopkinsville, KY, Ronald (Lisa) Ewer of Hopkinsville, KY, Mary (Kevin) Eichelt of Lublin, Roger (Arlene) Ewer of Medford, Jennie Jennejohn of Lublin; 35 grandchildren; 63 great grandchildren; 5 great-great grandchildren;  2 daughters-in-law: LouAnn Ewer-Coulthurst of Marshfield and Theresa Ewer of Cadott; 2 brothers: George (Cheryl) Whittenberger of St. Francis, MN and Don (Donna) Whittenberger of Copperas Cove, TX; one sister: Charlotte Gorsenger of Minneapolis, MN; sister-in-law: Verdella Whittenberger of Tomahawk; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
     She was preceded in death by her parents; her first husband, George Ewer; 2 sons: Kenneth and Michael Ewer; one grandson: Justin Eichelt; 3 great grandsons: Ayden Eichelt, Isaac Repetto and Hayden Gustavson; 2 brothers: Russell Whittenberger and Charles L.
