HENSEL, Marilyn Nov 23, 1928 – Sep 8, 2021

Marilyn M. Hensel, 92, of Logansport, passed away peacefully at home Wednesday morning, Sept. 8, 2021.
Born on Nov. 23, 1928, in Logansport, she was the daughter of the late Henry and Gladys (Murphy) Schiele.
On Aug. 3, 1957, in Logansport, she was married to Dean Frederick Hensel Sr., who preceded her in death on Oct. 22, 1979.
Marilyn was a devoted member of Trinity Lutheran Church and had lovingly cared for the building as the church custodian for many years. As a mother of six, she had a tremendous work ethic not only as a homemaker but in the many places she worked over the years, including the Pharos-Tribune, General Tire, Polsinelli’s and Keller’s.
Marilyn was a life member of the VFW Auxiliary. She enjoyed mowing her yard, and even at age 92, Marilyn would have been ready to climb a ladder if someone needed help painting. She loved dogs and cats and had many of her own, as well as grand-dogs and grand-kitties over the years.
Surviving are six children, Dean Hensel Jr., Indianapolis, Daryl Hensel (Jounice), Cheyenne, Wyoming, Debra Hensel (Paula Johnson), Peru, and Dian Musselman, Delores Hensel (Edie) and Denise James (Jon), all of Logansport; 13 grandchildren, Nick, Summer, Stephane, Angela, Rosie, Christopher, Daniel, Michelle, Erica, Ashleigh, Natasha, Jonathan and April; 28 great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren with two more on the way.
In addition to her husband and parents, Marilyn was preceded in death by one grandson, David Hensel; one brother, Donald Schiele; and three sisters, Norma Schiele, Betty Miles and Dorothy McGrath.
A memorial service celebrating Marilyn’s life will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 16, at the Trinity Lutheran Church, 97 E. Market St., with Pastor David Smith officiating. The VFW Ladies Auxiliary will conduct memorial rites at the start of the service.
Interment will follow in the Ever Rest Memorial Park.
Friends will be received from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. Thursday at the church.
