Marjorie Ann Mikels (Baker)

June 9, 2022

Marjorie Ann Mikels (Baker) left this world to join her husband on June 9, 2022.

Those that knew Mrs. Mikels remember her feisty fun loving spirit, but more so the genuine warmth and caring she extended to everyone she met. To family, she was the matriarch without knowing the true meaning of the word. She was the family go- to for sage advice on everything and quietly instilled strong life values at every turn. But, Mom/Grandma loved to have fun. Sports of all sorts and unexpected trips to Dairy Queen or a trip to Brown County for Thanksgiving or whenever she could. Mr. Mikels’ pride and joy and driving force was raising her family with the love of her life with appreciation of simple joys steeped in love and devotion always looking for the next adventure.

Survivors include her son Dean Mikels (Kelly); daughter Vickie Achelpohl (John); six grandchildren Katie (Gabe) Schauf, Kelsie (Ryan) Gregory, Tara (Blain) Frick, Lauren (Andrew )Harper, Carter Mikels and Ryan Mikels; five great grandchildren Greta, Gracie, Drew, Gwen, and Little Marjorie – her namesake; brothers Larry (Rita) Baker and Kenny (Susan) Baker; and sister-in-law Sondra Baker.

She is preceded in death by the love of her life Kenneth Mikels; brother Woody Baker; father Woodrow Baker Sr; and mother Genieve Baker.

Visitation is scheduled to be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 16, 2022 at Randall & Roberts Fishers Mortuary, 12010 Allisonville Road, in Fishers. An additional hour of visitation is scheduled to be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 17, 2022 with the service scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. at the funeral home.
