Timothy John Mabie

April 10, 1950February 13, 2021

Timothy J. Mabie passed away unexpectedly surrounded by his family on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at the age of 70 years old. Tim was a graduate of Saint Mary Springs Academy in Fond duLac, Wisconsin, and then received his bachelor’s degree in communications at UW Oshkosh.

He was a man of faith and an active member of Saint Joseph Marello Catholic Church, where he served as a lector of the Word of the Lord. He was also a past Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus. Tim was an insurance agent for his entire career, both in Wisconsin and California, and an avid sports fan with his allegiance always torn between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers. His life was cut short by a recent diagnosis of (ALS) amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Tim is survived by his wife of 46 years, Barbara Heinzen Mabie, his son, Patrick (Lisa), and his beloved dog Minnie. Son of Lois Mabie, brother of Mary Lodes, sisters in law Diane Mabie, Kathy Vogel, and Ann Kaczkowski (Konrad). Also loved and survived by many nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends. Preceded in death by his newborn daughter Molly, father John Mabie, brother Dan Mabie, father and mother in law Tony and Dora Heinzen, and brothers in law Walter Vogel and Dave Lodes.

In lieu of flowers, donations appreciated to Barbara Mabie for a memorial yet to be determined. Special thanks to all the Sutter ICU nurses and Drs. Kim, Clark, and Knox. Due to the pandemic, a celebration of life will be held at a later date.

My condolences to Aunt Lois, Mary Bridget, Tim’s wife and son and extended family members. I remember seeing Tim out at Ganny’s cottage on Lake Winnebago when we visited from NJ. He was very friendly, very talkative and had a great smile. As we got older and the cottage was sold after Ganny passed away, we all seemed to drift apart and lose touch with each other. The 6 Mabie siblings (Bob, Marge, June,, Tom, Jack and Dick have all passed as have several of the 23 cousins. I was saddened to read that Tim had ALS, which is such a debilitating disease. Wish we had all kept in contact over the years. May the wonderful memories that you shared with Tim and Dan remain close to your heart. Again, Sorry for your loss. Love, Betsy (Dunham) Dowling

Timmy, you have been a big part of our community. You have balanced Wisconsin with California. I’ll miss your badger shirts and your humor. At least now you’re guaranteed a view of all the Badger, Packer and Niner games. Thanks for your friendship RIP.

Tim always was in a good mood every time I saw him. His smile was contagious and it was clear that he was loved and loved his family ver much. I’d always ask him if he gave me a winning ticket in our raffles, and he’d laugh and say “yes” or “you bet”. That always made me smile too! Rest In Peace Tim. You will be missed!
