109 years ago today, my Grandma Margaret Lucille Houselog Blomgren was born. Here is some biographical information from find a grave:
Margaret L. Blomgren was born on May 31, 1905 in Grant County, Wisc. to Henry and Lena (Demuth) Houselog. When she was five years old the family moved to a farm near Hatfield where she attended school for eight years and then attended Pipestone High School and also one year of normal training at Pipestone. Margaret taught school for six years east of Hatfield and later substituted at Elkton. On June 16, 1930, she married Clarence Blomgren at Woodstock and they lived on a farm near Pipestone until 1937 when they moved to a farm northeast of Elkton. Clarence preceded her in death on March 15, 1970 and she moved into Elkton in December 1970. She entered Riverview Manor in October of 1994.
