Obituary for Margie Ruth Friedrich

Margie was born on May 18, 1929 in Jasper, Minnesota, the daughter of Carl Friedrich and Hilda (Eikmeier) Friedrich. After graduating from Jasper High School, Margie attended St. Cloud (Minnesota) Teachers College for two years and earned her teaching degree. She taught 1st and 2nd graders in Hanley Falls, Minnesota for four years, then returned to Teachers College to earn her four year degree. Margie then moved to Worthington, Minnesota. She was Miss Friedrich to her classes of 1st grade students for thirty years, until her retirement in 1985.
Margie was active in her community and in her church, Westminster Presbyterian. She enjoyed traveling and over the years accomplished visiting in all 50 of the United States. She spent many of her weekends and much of her summer vacation at home. Her parents remained in Jasper. Her dad died in 1953 and her mom stayed in Jasper until moving to New Richland, Minnesota in 1959.
Margie baked countless cookies and bars and always had a supply ready to pack a “Care Package” for family and friends. Her niece and nephew, great nieces and nephews, great great nieces and nephews, and her cousin’s children and their children have fond memories of spending time with Margie. Jeanette Jenson of Worthington was like another niece to Margie.
Margie will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by her nephew and his wife, Larry and Cindy Friedrich of St. Peter; her niece and husband, Mary Ann and Tom Kramer of Granite Falls; great nephews and nieces Jeremy Kramer, Laura Eyre, Becky De Vries, Heather Hooper, Colin Kramer; and by the Jenson family.
