Marge grew up in St Paul, MN right next to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. “The fairgrounds was our playground when we were kids, and Bethel University was right down the road from us also”, said Marge. She would work at the State Fair every year with her siblings. She has an older sister and older brother, so she is the baby of the family. Marge went to school at Murray High School and would walk through the fairgrounds to get to school.
Marge and Don knew each other since kindergarten. They went to the same grade school and high school. They went out together on their first date to the movie theater in St Paul. Marge and Don lived near each other and still got together with their classmates every once in a while, and that’s how they stayed in touch! They started going out together in their mid-twenties. Later, they got married at Holy Childhood Church in St Paul and had 4 kids together, 2 girls and twin boys.
Margery’s husband Don had a well-paying job, so Margery was a stay-at-home wife and took care of her children and the house. She started working once all of the children were out of the house. She worked at Country Club Markets for 10 years as a Head Cashier. “Dealing with people is fun because you never know what is going to happen that day”, Margery said.
She retired around the late 1990’s and traveled a lot with her husband, Don. They traveled all through Europe, France, Canada, and drove all over the United States. They drove a car around Europe and just stopped whenever they wanted to. Europe was by far her favorite place to travel to! Marge really enjoys playing cribbage, golfing, and loves to hang out with her family.
She moved into Woodstone Active Living in December of 2020. She moved from Roseville, MN to Hutchinson, MN to be closer to her family. “The people are all so nice here, they always let me beat them in cribbage”, said Marge (wink wink). She also really enjoys the Hutchinson area. “It is just a beautiful place to be around. From living in the cities my whole life to moving to Hutchinson, I really enjoy the nice location!”, said Marge.
Marge always has a beautiful smile on her face and loves to play Cribbage whenever she can. We are very lucky to have her a part of our Woodstone family!
