Margaret Kuiken

Margaret Kuiken was born on September 24, 1926 to Marinus and Jenny Louise (VerMeer) Intveld in Hull, Iowa. She grew up on the family farm, attending school at Lincoln Township No. 14 near Hull. She developed a good work ethic by helping in the home and on the farm. On December 18, 1946, Margaret was united in marriage to Donald Kuiken. Throughout her life, she was a homemaker and helped with farm work when and where needed. Margaret and Don started farming north of Hull, then near Luverne, Minnesota and also Montevideo, Minnesota. In 1957, they returned to Luverne moving to their farm south of Luverne where they raised their family and farmed for the next 38 years. They retired in 1995 and built a new home in Luverne. Don passed to glory in 2007. In 2015, Margaret moved into The Oaks, assisted living in Luverne. In June of 2022, she entered hospice care. On Monday, May 15, 2023, while at the Pipestone County Hospice House, Margaret went to be with her Lord at the age of 96 years, 7 months, and 21 days.

 

Margaret was a faithful member of American Reformed Church in Luverne where she was involved in teaching Sunday school and Bible school. She was also active in a Bible study group, Circle, and Guild. She loved the Lord and doing the service she was called to do. She was a member of the clintonaires extension club and an avid Twins fan, attending many games. She enjoyed playing cards, serving, yard work, reading, and cryptogram puzzles. During their retirement years, Don and Margaret enjoyed spending their winters in California and Arizona. They also did a lot of traveling during the summer. One of her greatest joys was her family.
