Obituary for Margaret Emma Bisson

MARGARET EMMA BISSON was born on August 6, 1917 to Peter and Elizabeth (Carton) DeSplinter in Jasper, Minnesota. She attended country school in District 36, Rosedell Township, Rock County, Minnesota through the eighth grade and then high school in Jasper, Minnesota. She grew up on the farm with one brother and two sisters. She also attended Schyler Beauty School in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to be a beautician. She was united in marriage on November 23, 1939, to Arthur Bisson at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Jasper. They farmed northwest of Jasper for 45 years and after their retirement they built a home in Jasper. Margaret devoted so much time throughout her life to being a caring wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Following Arthur’s death in 2001, Margaret continued to live and thrive at her home in Jasper. On Monday, July 11, 2016 she passed away at the Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls, at the age of 98 years, 11 months, and 5 days.

Margaret was a faithful member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Jasper where she was a part of their altar society, CCW, and many other church activities. She was a project leader in 4H, enjoyed serving at the Senior Citizens Center, and delivering Meals on Wheels. She loved baking and cooking, bowling, golfing, playing cards, and attending gatherings of the Red Hat Society. She was a prayer warrior and also enjoyed sending cards out to family and friends. For many years, Margaret and Art enjoyed spending their winters in Mesa, Arizona. Margaret was always a very positive, sweet, kind, loving person and always thankful for everything. Most of all her passion was caring for her family; her love, prayers, and generosity will never be forgotten.
