Marguerite Madeline Horgus, 86, passed away on March 29, 2020, from complications of COVID-19.
Marguerite was born on July 16, 1933 to John and Louise Wolanski on the family farm east of Sweetgrass. She went to school at the Wilshaw Country School, Sweetgrass School and graduated from Sunburst High School.
Marguerite married the love of her life, George Horgus on June 28, 1950. They were married 64 years. George and Marguerite built their life together on their farm in Sweetgrass, where they raised five children. They were a true love story who inspired all around them.
Marguerite lived a full life as a wife, mother, and grandmother. In her younger years, Marguerite and George enjoyed their nights out country western dancing or playing pinochle with their friends of the Anniversary Club. She was a remarkable cook, kept an immaculate kitchen, and had an extensive library of cookbooks. Marguerite’s home was open to all, as her
hospitality was known throughout Toole county and beyond. Marguerite will be remembered as a strong, hard-working woman who loved her family above all else. She will be dearly missed, and forever in our hearts.
Survivors include children, Nancy Horgus and her children, Jessica Whitt and Bryan (Tasha) Whitt; John Horgus; Gayle (Tim) Buckley; Roger (Janine) Horgus and their children, Beth (Ryan) Loomis, Dylan (Laura) Horgus, and Trevor Horgus; Michelle Horgus and her children, Bridger Line and Hunter Line; and great-grandchildren, Amaria, Jasmine, Noah, Evie, and Reese.
