Marilyn Folkerts, age 71, of Edgerton, Minnesota, passed away on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Marilyn was born in Pipestone, Minnesota to Richard and Anna Jean (Schoolmeester) Beckering. She grew up near Edgerton, Minnesota on the family farm. After she graduated high school in 1970, she began working at Gannon's Restaurant in Pipestone. In 1973, she married Douglas Folkerts. She and Doug had three children, Krista, Kelly, and Kimberly whom they raised on the farm just outside of Woodstock, Minnesota. She spent her married life on a farm caring for pigs, cattle, and many other animals that come with the farm life. She also dedicated her life to raising her three daughters as a stay-at-home mom. She loved children and enjoyed having her grandchildren over to her home, cooking for them, taking them on trail rides, and fishing. 
She was preceded in death by her sister, Marlene LaVigne, and her parents, Richard and Anna Jean Beckering.  She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Douglas Folkerts; three daughters, Krista (Richard) Colvin, Kelly (Nickolas) Bennett, and Kimberly (Andrew) Holtan; nine grandchildren, Ian, Caleb, Ryleigh, Jacob, Lydia, Christian, Avery, Olin, and Caden; sisters, Donna Kuipers and Barbara Van Eck; and her brother, Lelin Beckering.
