Wheeler passed away from this life on Sunday, May 5, 2024, surrounded by family, friends, and beloved pets, in the comfort of her home in Albuquerque, NM.    Born in Fond du Lac, on July 30, 1945, she was the youngest of seven children brought together by the marriage of her parents, Conrad Langenhorst and Mary (Pruitt) Langenhorst.   She was raised in Mayville, and became a graduate of Mayville High School in 1963. Shortly after, she attended Oshkosh State College and it was during this time that she met and married the love of her life, George C. Wheeler, her devoted husband of 57 years. Together, they welcomed a daughter, Wendy Ellen. After residing 26 years in Wisconsin, they moved to Albuquerque, NM.    Margy began working in Albuquerque in 1974. She entered the workforce as an entry-level secretary not knowing that she would soon advance her skills as a legal secretary and continue to build her career by becoming a Certified Paralegal in the State of New Mexico. She worked for a number of prominent law firms in Albuquerque before her formal retirement in the mid-90s.    Anyone and everyone who knew Margy will tell you that she was full of life. Her energy and enthusiasm was contagious to those around her. As a young girl and throughout her life as an adult woman, she was the life of the party. Her magnitude of love was unselfishly shared with everyone. As a daughter, she was mischievous and curious. As a sister, she was always available. As an aunt, she was the favorite. As a friend, she was honest and loyal. As a wife, she was loving and devoted. As a mother, she was exceptional. Our world without her feels much emptier.    She is survived by her husband, George C.

Amy Leder

Amy Leder


   From my rotting body, flowers shall grow, and I am in them, and that is eternity.—Edvard Munch   Born November 23, 1957, Amy entered this world in Beaver Dam and grew up in Mayville. She was the eldest child of Jack and Marilyn (Jacobs) Leder and sister to John and Ann. Amy drew her last breath at home on May 3, 2024, surrounded by love.   Amy was a dedicated gardener, gifted artist, and talented seamstress. She utilized many mediums—drawing, mechanical movement, and home improvement—to create her unique, unusual—and at times eccentric art.    The universe provided her raw materials from the East Side of Milwaukee for her creations. Cedric the Moose, who now resides in her home, once graced the walls of the West Bend Museum of Wisconsin Artists Members Show. Amy found great joy in ripping apart new pairs of shoes to modify them to her liking. Her tailoring abilities are legendary—Amy could transform an ordinary bolt of cloth, old clothing, or remnants into unique garments.   Anyone who visited Amy’s extraordinary gardens recognized another form of her artistry, with the 2023 Port Washington Garden Tour featuring her horticultural talents. And her extensive knowledge of Latin plant names and their medicinal uses was extensive.   Amy loved a good mystery, and regularly lent her books to anyone who wanted a good read. Her stash of vintage, quirky birthday cards and creation of novel envelopes will be missed by all who received them. She was a proud member of the Luddite Society and lover of words. This intelligent, sardonic, insightful, and opinionated woman was dearly loved. Her gentle soul and thoughtful outlook on life will always be part of those who knew and treasured her.   Amy found companionship when a gentle, and wise, man stopped into Koppas Deli on Farwell Avenue to tell jokes. Dan and Amy married on June 7, 2003, and combined their lives and cat families. In 2008, they relocated to their purple and orange house in Port Washington. Those were the best 22 years of both of their lives.   The spirits who welcome Amy on the other side include her parents, Jack, and Marilyn; brother, John; paternal grandparents, Arthur and Meta (Glander) Leder; maternal grandmother, Lydia (Clarstrom) Jacobs; favorite Auntie Lois; cousin, Jim, special friends, Evelyn, Michael, and Bernice; and all eight cats who shared their lives with her (but not all at once).    Amy is survived by her husband, Dan Gerth; sister, Ann (Gary) Scott; beloved cousin, Jean (Blair Semple) Mansavage; niece, Wendy (Damon Jarman) Sievert; a gaggle of Gerths, jumble of Jacobs, and murder of Mansavages.   Special thanks and love to her caregivers, Briana, Sonja, and Kindra, who are all angels.   There will be a celebration of Amy’s life later this year.   In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local animal shelter.   Now, Amy knows all the great mysteries.   The Eernisse Funeral Home, Port Washington is honored to serve the Leder family. Online condolences may be left at www.eernissefuneralhome.com.
