Marjorie R. (Zachrich) Kahrs


Marjorie R. (Zachrich) Kahrs, 78, of Napoleon, passed away Monday April 17, 2017 at her home.

She was born April 12, 1939 in Defiance to the late Louis and Lillian (Tadsen) Zachrich. She married Edward “Ed” Kahrs on March 28, 1959 at First Lutheran Church in Defiance, and he survives in Napoleon.

Jesus, you guys. So sorry.

I'll always hear myself being called a potlicker in her voice. That's good thing.

Ed, Shelly, Rob,
My heart goes out to you all. Please understand I cannot be there as we are still in Florida. Be assured you are all included in my prayers and I understand fully the pain you feel. Please find assurance that she is fine and once again with Mike and Louie and Lil, and the rest of her family and friends. As we try to carry on without her, her pain is gone and all is well.
I wish I could be there as we are always family, but Ed, I will chat with you when we get home. Marge and I squared things away years ago, so we are fine....
God Bless You All, and give you strength;
