Marjorie M. Hagberg, 69, of Chippewa Falls died suddenly and unexpectedly Monday, May 13, 2013 at her home.
She was born October 7, 1943 in Colfax to Muriel (Zingshiem) and LaVerne Hovland. She graduated from Colfax High School in 1961.
On November 21, 1963, she married the love of her life and high school sweetheart, Jack Hagberg in Stillwater, MN. They resided in Colfax until moving to Chippewa Falls in 1974, and Marjorie raised their four children and made their home.
Over the years, Marjorie became like a second mother to many children. She enjoyed making meals for others and will be remembered for her great cooking.
