MARGARET MAERTENS

February 6, 1925 — November 2, 2022

COOPERSTOWN,

MARGARET MAERTENS

 

            Margaret Maertens, 97, Cooperstown, ND passed away Wednesday, November 2, 2022, on All Souls’ Day at Nelson County Care Center, McVille,      ND.

            Margaret Mary Eggermont was born February 6, 1925, on a farm in rural Cooperstown, ND the daughter of Alfons and Louise (Franque`) Eggermont. She married John Maertens February 27, 1946, at St. Lawrence Catholic Church, Jessie, ND. She lived her whole life in the same rural Jessie area belonging to St. Lawrence Catholic Church except for 1 year in 1933 when she lived with her aunt and uncle in Detroit, Michigan where she received her Confirmation and First Holy Communion. She lived on the farm in rural Jessie until September 2016 when she entered the care center in McVille, ND.

            Margaret spent her time helping on the farm with raising cattle, pigs, and chickens. She loved to cook, bake, garden, and sew. Being a stay-at-home mom and taking care of family was her life mission. In 1977 she took over the care of her disabled sister, Selma Eggermont. Faith and family were Margaret’s life and what brought her such joy. A new baby was the source of her biggest smiles.

            John was laid to rest on Oct 31, 1998, and that was the day, 24 years later, that Margaret started her decline. She received Last Rites from Fr. Kinzler on Tuesday, All Saints’ Day.
