Margaret Victoria Lindquist, of Mora, passed away on Wednesday, December 28, 2011 at her home. She was 94 years old.
Margaret was born on November 1, 1917 in Sand Lake, Minnesota to parents Victor and Martha (Ericson) Wicklund. Born the third of nine children, Margaret attended country school near Sand Lake until the family moved to the Grasston area in 1931 where she attended the Wyndham district 1 school. Due to her mother’s poor health, Margaret spent her teenage years talking care of her younger siblings.
On December 9, 1939, Margaret was united in marriage to Lorain Lindquist. Together the couple made their home on the family farm in Grasston where they raised their four children. Margaret helped Lorain with the farm chores and raising crops as well as caring for her family. After Lorain death in 1994, Margaret moved to the Woodcrest apartments in Mora where she continued to reside until her death.
Margaret was a long time member of the Hope Lutheran church in Grasston. She enjoyed gardening while on the farm and was a wonderful cook, especially her fudge and cakes. Margaret and Lorain enjoyed many winters in Florida, and enjoyed traveling with family and friends to Alaska, Hawaii, and California. She enjoyed playing cards, scrabble, and doing puzzles. Most of all, Margaret loved her family and taking care of them. She will be dearly missed.
