Margaret M. Brown, 90, a lifetime resident of Wolf Point, residing at the Faith Lutheran Home, died Feb. 22, 2014.
Born Nov. 26, 1923, to Walter and Nina Mueller, she grew up on the farm in McCone County. She attended grade school at Sunnyside Country School. She graduated from high school in Wolf Point.
She married Paul Galen Brown Aug. 20, 1947, in Columbus. To that union, they had four children.
She worked for many years at the Roosevelt County Courthouse in the Clerk and Recorder’s office, retiring in 1986.
Paul died in 1987. Not being defeated by the valleys one must endure in this life, she was rescued by her friends engaging in card games and community activities. Also, her volunteer work which included the Roosevelt County and Wolf Point High School libraries was very rewarding. During the summer, she was kept busy with pampering her flowers and her yard, taking car rides with her brother and friends and outings with her children. Her two sons-in-law enjoyed taking her boating and on four-wheeler rides.
In the earlier years, she and Paul and numerous friends enjoyed fishing, camping and snowmobiling.
She was a 90-year member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Wolf Point.
She was preceded in death by husband, Paul; and her three brothers, Arthur, Donald and Arnold.
She is survived by her son, Loran; daughters, Sue Broesder, Donna Block and Debi Armstrong; 10 grandchildren; and 17 great-grandchildren.
Cremation has taken place and a celebration of her life will be at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church on Friday, Feb. 28, at 11 a.m. Graveside services will be scheduled at a later date. Clayton Stevenson Memorial Chapel of Wolf Point assisted with the arrangements.
