Mrs. Marie Eide Bremer, age 66, of Stockbridge, GA passed away November 8, 2012. Marie was the daughter of the late Palmer and Esther Ovidia Fracher Eide, she was also preceded in death by a sister, Marlene Harris. Marie grew up in Strum, WI as the youngest of three sisters. After graduation from high school, she decided to pursue a career in nursing, attending the Luther Hospital School of Nursing earning her cap and becoming an RN in 1967. Marie met her husband Jim while in school and they married on February 3, 1968. When their son Kurt was born, she made an easy transition to motherhood while remaining active in nursing and expanding her horizons earning a bachelor's degree in 1990 from the University of Northern Iowa. Marie managed the Piedmont Physician Office in Forest Park, GA until her retirement.
In 1979, powerboat racing became a part of Marie's life when she joined Jim, driver of a Mod VP craft, at the races as his crew. However, she soon realized with her organizational ability, that becoming part of the officiating team was an excellent place to use her skills. Marie served as a master scorer for Great Lakes Boat Club, Chief Scorer for the OPC National Championships, master/computer scorer for both International Outboard Grand Prix and Powerboat Superleague. She was honored by the national sanctioning organization with the APBA Scorer's Award and by the membership of Powerboat Superleague as sportsperson of the year.
Family vacations and trips with friends provided Marie many opportunities to enjoy and indulge in some of life's best pleasures: the comfort of family and the company of good friends, sharing meals, a glass of chardonnay, and chocolate cake for breakfast with a warm cup of coffee and days filled with laughter. Her quiet times were devoted to reading, music, spending time with Jim and their cat Nitro. Marie is survived by her husband of 44 years, Jim Bremer of Stockbridge; son and daughter-in-law, Kurt and Lori of Apple Valley, MN; sister and brother-in-law, Carolyn and Dean Boehne of Strum, WI; several nieces and nephews.
A memorial service for Marie will be held on Saturday, November 17, 2012 – 1:00 PM in the chapel of Haisten Funeral Home with Rev. Laurie Vidal and Rev. Ron Peagram officiating. The family will receive friends at the funeral home one hour prior to the service. For those who wish in lieu of flowers, the family request that donations be made to Legacy Ministry, LLC, P.O.
