Margaret Dorothy Hartog was born August 29, 1940 in Luverne, Minnesota to Lloyd and Bonnie (Gertz) Sodemann. She passed away on Sunday, January 31, 2021, at the age of 80, at the Sanford Medical Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Margaret was born and raised in Luverne. She met Richard Hartog after he returned from serving in the Korean War. They were married on November 16, 1958. They lived in Luverne for 10 years where Margaret was a homemaker. In 1968 they moved to Worthington where she continued to be a homemaker for their four children. She later obtained her CNA license and worked at Crossroads Care Center for 19 years.
Family was everything to Margaret. Her world revolved around her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved to read and was an avid fan of Fox News. She cherished her shopping excursions with her daughters, especially for shoes and purses. She enjoyed taking her car out for drives around the town checking out the sites of Worthington. She had quite a sweet tooth for ice cream and cookies and put Cool Whip on just about everything she ate. She enjoyed visiting with her children and catching up with all the activities in their lives. Margaret had a heart of gold and always made sure her grandchildren and great grandchildren received their birthday and holiday gifts. She loved visiting with her friends at the Homestead Cooperative.
