Obituary for Margaret P. Habben

MARGARET PATRICIA HABBEN was born on April 30, 1926, in Roseau County, Minnesota. She graduated from Balaton High School in Balaton, Minnesota. Following her graduation, Margaret married Edward Habben in 1944, at the United Methodist Church in Balaton. The young couple moved to Litchfield, Minnesota, but soon returned to their roots in Balaton.

After many years of staying home to raise the couple’s eight children, Margaret entered the work force. After 20+ years of working, she retired from Schwan’s. The thing that Margaret loved above all else was her family. Some of her favorite hobbies were flower gardening, playing Rumikub, cards, and reading books about the hardships and triumphs of early settlers. Margaret had a deep faith in God and had a great gift for compassion, often placing the needs of others above her own. Margaret passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 1, 2020, at the Boulder Creek Assisted Living in Marshall, Minnesota at the age of 93 years, ten months, and one day.

She is lovingly remembered by her children, Sandra (Harold) Pherigo of St. Cloud, Minnesota, Dale (Donna) Habben of Colorado Springs, Colorado, son-in-law, Steve Prairie, Grace (Wayne) Thovson of Princeton, Minnesota, Alan (Ellen) Habben of Paynesville, Minnesota, Luanne (Brian) Folkerts of Rockville, Minnesota, Melanie (Robert) Thooft of Tyler, Minnesota, Fay (Douglas) Prairie of Balaton; 23 grandchildren; 50 great-grandchildren with two on the way; one great-great-grandchild; a sister, Olga Johnson of Oregon; and many other loving friends and family members. She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward; a daughter, Linda Prairie; grandson, Luke Prairie; and a great-granddaughter, Amelia Jurkowski.
