UPDATE (Thursday, 11:42 a.m.): The family of Marion Fiedler has decided to cancel the wake and funeral services originally planned for this coming Friday and Saturday. The family met this morning with Pastor Johnson from St. Peter’s Lutheran church and they want to take precautionary measures given the recent rise of the COVID-19 virus. The family and the church are thinking of the elderly population and want everyone who loved and knew Marion to feel safe.
