Margaret was born in Holdingford on farm where she was born and raised. Margaret graduated from the St. Cloud Teacher's College in 1943, with a degree in Elementary and Rural Education. She taught in several one room school houses and talked often about the challenges and triumphs she faced during those years. She later taught at St. Peter's and eventually at St. Anthony's where she retired after a 22 year career to start her own family. She often spoke fondly of her teaching days. She truly adored each of her students.
In 1947 she married Eugene A Case at the church of St. Mary in Holdingford, MN. They enjoyed traveling, camping, dancing, and spending time with family and friends. After 19 years of marriage, they were blessed with their only child, Jacquelyn. Margaret and Eugene celebrated 61 years of marriage before his passing in 2009.
Margaret was a woman of strong faith. She was a member of the Legion of Mary for several years. She was also a member of the Women's Auxiliary 428 of St. Cloud. She loved her Catholic faith and practiced it daily. She always had a kind word or a silent prayer for someone that was in need.
Margaret enjoyed shopping and chatting. She had endless amounts of stories to share from her life time. She loved cooking, the outdoors, gardening, walking, animals, music, singing, playing the piano and dancing; especially as a young woman. She was also quite the trickster, always looking for a reason to laugh and have fun. She was especially fond of her family and close friends. Her daughter meant everything to her.
She was a wonderful mother. She loved her family dearly. Her humor, smile and kindness will be missed by many.
Margaret is survived by her daughter, Jacquelyn (James) Hall of St. Cloud; granddaughters, Amber Hall of St. Cloud, Coral (Jesse Graves) Hall of St. Cloud; two great-granddaughters, Zanna Graves and Lexa Graves. Margaret greatly anticipated the birth of her third great-granddaughter in July. She is also survived by her siblings, Adeline (Milton) Zenk, Floyd (Janice) Czech, David (Delores) Czech; and many nieces and nephews.
Margaret was preceded in death by parents, Alois and Theresa (Kiley) Czech; husband, Eugene; siblings, Alois Jr., Wayne, Oliver (Dina), Delphine, and Dale.
