Marlene Forshee | Director of Music & K-8 Music


Marlene Forshee, Director of Music and middle school math teacher, joined the faculty at Trinity in August of 2004. Marlene has been a life-long student of Lutheran education, attending St. John Lutheran School, Random Lake, Sheboygan Lutheran High School, and Concordia University Wisconsin. Marlene has spent her 28 years of teaching in a variety of settings, with a variety of ages. Her first Call was to teach third grade, play the organ, and direct the church and school music at Trinity, Sauk Rapids, MN where she met her husband, Richard. After returning to Wisconsin, Marlene taught pre-school and was the organist and music director at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church, Waukesha, WI. After her God-mother’s retirement, she went back to her home congregation and started the kindergarten program at St. John, and served as their organist and music director for 8 years. God then led Marlene to accept the Call to be the Director of Music at Trinity, Freistadt. As the years progressed, Marlene took on more classroom duties, and currently also teaches middle school advanced mathematics. When Marlene isn’t at Trinity, she enjoys spending time with her husband Rich, daughter Amanda (English teacher at Wisconsin Dells High School), and son Tom (recent graduate of Concordia University Wisconsin, English major). She also enjoys reading, crocheting, hiking, and card making.
