Elizabeth “Beth” Duginske

Feb 05, 1952 - Nov 04, 2022


Beth Duginske was born on February 5, 1952 to Mike and Val Duginske in Wausau, WI. She unexpectedly passed away on November 4, 2022 at the age of 70. She married Dan Dulmes on June 2, 1973. Beth loved camping, hiking, and exploring new places with Dan during the early years of their marriage and after the birth of her children. Some of their favorite destinations were National Parks located across the United States. Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes Park, Colorado held a special place in both their hearts. On March 28, 1985 she gave birth to fraternal twins Dawn and Lucas. One of Beth’s greatest joys was being a homemaker and a mother to her children. She took great pride in being involved in numerous after school activities. They were both members of First United Lutheran Church. Dan passed away in 2015.

Beth met her next love Augie Margenau at local Al-Anon meetings and spent the remainder of her life with him. They enjoyed volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Sheboygan County.

Beth was an amazing woman with a heart of gold. She was a wonderful mother and spouse. She enjoyed spending time with friends and family. Her favorite flowers were roses. Beth and Dan grew roses every year at their home, which was a difficult task in Wisconsin.

She is further survived by Gary and Susan Dulmes, Jeff Dulmes, Russ and Love Margenau, numerous nieces and nephews, blended family members, and special friends.

Oh my I just found a saved greeting card from Beth and wanted to look her up...So I "Googled" her name and found her obituary.. To my surprise I'm devastated. Over one year back and I missed her memorial services. To her children...she was so proud of you two. She was the BEST CAREGIVER my mom ever had at Countryside Manor. A beautiful caring woman indeed.

Dear Augie and Beth’s Family, I was part of Beth’s ‘Alanon family’. Her kind, gentle heart will be missed. I am so very sorry for your loss.

Augie and Family, I am so sorry to hear of Beth’s passing. The short time I have known Beth I can say she was a very kind and caring person. I remember one time when Steve and I were visiting, the Packers game was on and I can tell you, she loved the Packers. I am proud to call her my friend. . Rest in peace sweet lady, you will be missed.
