Margaret “Marge” Weiand, 81, of Fergus Falls, loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother passed away Thursday, May 7, 2020 at the Broen Senior Living.
She was born September 21, 1938, the second of nine children, to John and Hertha (Miller) McLaughlin in Hazen, ND. She grew up on a farm and attended school in Hazen. On August 26, 1959, she was united in marriage to Jerome “Jerry” Weiand. They moved to Mandan, ND and had three children, John, Kimberly and Kathryn. Marge was a stay at home mother and cared for the children. In 1966, she and Jerry moved their family to Pierre, SD. While being a full-time mom, she worked part-time at the elementary school. In 1973, after relocating to West Fargo, ND, Marge worked at West Fargo Drug Store for many years. She then went to work at K-Mart in Fargo, ND. She continued working for K-Mart even after their move to Sioux Falls, SD in 1996. Upon Jerry’s retirement, they made their final home in Fergus Falls, MN in 2004.
Marge enjoyed attending her children’s and grandchildren’s many activities. One of these being baseball games. She was an avid Minnesota Twins fan. A favorite activity of hers was playing card games with family and friends. She became a member of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary and a member of Our Lady of Victory Church. Having accepted God into her life and knowing her loved ones will be waiting for her in Heaven, Margaret was at peace and passed away under Hospice care.
