With heavy hearts and mixed emotions we announce the passing of Marilyn Marie (Doebele) Hassler on March 30, 2022. While we are devastated at the loss of our mother, we know she is finally free from the suffering that multiple sclerosis has inflicted on her over the past 42 years. Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to everyone who has provided comfort and aide to her during her life. Her faith and perseverance have surely earned her a place in Heaven (on the dance floor if she gets to choose). Visitation is Friday, April 1, from noon to 5 p.m. at the Hanover Mortuary. A vigil service will be held at 7:00 p.m., Friday, at St. John's Catholic Church in Hanover. A funeral service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, April 2, at St. John's Catholic Church.
