Posted in Mabel Obituaries

Donald “Mike” Marsden, age 87, of rural Mabel, Minn. died early Thursday morning July 24, 2014 at his home on the farm in rural Mabel with his family at his side.

Mike was born April 21, 1927 in Waukon, Iowa to Jim and Nettie (Riley) Marsden. He attended the Elk Country School through the 8th grade. To help the family, he went to North Dakota to work during harvest time and also held jobs in Waterloo at Charberlin Factory, Rath Meat Packing Plant, and on the pipeline in Minnesota. Shortly before World War II ended Mike joined the Navy where he did his basic training in San Diego.

In 1947 he married LaVaughn Nerstad at the Scheie Lutheran Church in rural Mabel. Mike and LaVaughn moved to the farm near Choice, Minn. in 1948 and it’s where he lived the rest of his life. They have three living children Danny, Debbie, and Lisa. He enjoyed and loved his family very much and was proud of each and every one of them. LaVaughn passed away July 24, 2009.

Mike loved working the land and raising his animals. Besides farming he always had another full time job which included working for the city of Mabel in the maintenance and police departments, Armor Fertilizer Plant in Winona, construction, Farmers Union, Triple F Feeds, and manager/bartender of Mabel Liquor Store.

Mike has been a member of Scheie Lutheran Church for his entire married life. He was on the Scheie Cemetery and Choice Community Cemetery Boards for many years. Mike was proud to be an American and was a member of the American Legion for over 50 years and was a member of the DFL political party. He loved to play softball with one of the teams being the Tawney Aces. He also enjoyed dancing, fishing and hunting, playing cards, golfing, talking to people, and simply loved life and having fun. Mike liked a challenge and is most notably known for carrying a quarter of beef nine miles from Mabel to the farm in torrential rains back in 1962.

Mike is survived by three children Danny (Linda) of Mabel, Debbie of Rochester, Minn., and Lisa (Bob) Ruehmann of Kasson, Minn.; seven grandchildren Amy (Dave) Norby, Paula (Scott) Hicks, Jon (Tanya Kidder) Marsden, Taylor (Jennifer) Marsden, Danielle (Ryan) Newman, Chandler (Casey) Ruehmann, and Cameron Ruehmann; great grandchildren Abbey and Brooke Norby, Carter Hicks, Mallory Marsden, Hailey Marsden, Kolton Marsden, Anna Uhrhammer, Brody Marsden, and Blake Marsden; great great grandchild Bentzen .....
