Mrs. Margaret R. Fleckenstein, 90, wife of the late Donald C. Fleckenstein passed away at her home at Meadow Ridge in Redding, CT on Monday August 21, 2017.
Maggie as her friends called her was born in Joplin, Missouri on February 9, 1927 and was the daughter of the late Lee and Mary (Martin) Rickey. She moved to Duluth, MN in 1936 where she attended public schools. Maggie went on to the University of Minnesota Duluth where she graduated with honors and received her degree in Early Childhood Education. She taught school in Duluth, MN from 1948 to 1950 and married Donald Fleckenstein in 1950. They then moved to Richland, Washington and taught there for five years and then taught in Scotia, NY for another ten years. Maggie then stayed at home to raise her two children Mary Godfrey of Mamaroneck, NY and Doug Fleckenstein of Newburgh, NY. Maggie had four grandchildren: Jason, Mark, Hannah and Michael and two great-grandchildren: Lena and Andrew. After retirement from teaching Maggie was always active in working with children such as teaching Sunday School at the United Methodist Church and helping with pageants. She was an avid gardener.
Friends are invited to attend a memorial service for Maggie on Sunday September 24, 2017 at the United Methodist Church, 49 Weston Road, Westport, CT at 2:00 p.m. Contributions in memory of Maggie may be made to the United Methodist Church Sunday School Program.
