Life Story / Obituary


June 11, 1925 – January 18, 2020

Marjorie H. Sweet passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 18, 2020 at home with her family. Marge was born in Racine on June 11, 1925, the only daughter of the late Walter and Irene Buhler. Her brothers, Robert and Donald Buhler, preceded her in death.

Marge was married to the late Jack W. Eberhardt in November, 1947. They moved to Indianapolis, Indiana and raised a family of four children; Christine, Mark, Peter and Peggy. After returning to Racine and Jack’s death, Marge married the late Irwin “Buck” Sweet.

Marge loved her family, she loved life and she loved almost everyone she met. Anyone who knew Marge loved her and called her a friend. She will be deeply missed by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and many other relatives and dear friends. No words of thanks can ever express the family’s deep appreciation and love felt for Marge’s special caregiver and friend for the past seven years, Juana Longoria.

Surviving Marge are her four children: Christine (John) Patten, Mark (Marsha) Eberhardt, Peter (Maureen) Eberhardt, Peggy (Charlie) Patten; nine grandchildren: Kirsten (James) Summer, Josh (Rebecca) Eberhardt, Zach (Andrea) Eberhardt, Christian (Kristi) Eberhardt, Aaron (Meghan) Eberhardt, Fiona Eberhardt, Christopher Patten, Audrey Patten and Hilary (Tommy) Maxwell; and three great-grandchildren: Olivia Grace Summer, Philomena Eberhardt and Peter Eberhardt.

Interment will be private. A memorial service/celebration of Marge’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to All Saints Hospice Alliance in memory of Marge.
