Posted in Preston Obituaries

Margaret Eunice Hemker, age 84, of Preston, Minn., died Thursday morning, July 16, 2015, at Gundersen Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse.

Margaret was born March 29, 1931, in Preston, the youngest of 16 children, to Richard and Pauline (Bender) Schultz.

She married Walter Hemker on January 6, 1962, in Albert Lea, Minn. They made their home on the Schultz family farm near Preston. Walter passed away in 2003. For the past two years she resided in the Gundersen Harmony Care Center where she received wonderful care.

Margaret was a very loving and caring person. She had the misfortune of being struck by a car at the age of six. Severe injuries from the accident made her life more challenging. Despite this, she was a wonderful baker and a tireless caretaker of her mother, Pauline and her husband, Walter.

She enjoyed painting and was an avid gardener.

Margaret is survived by her sister, Leona Grisham of Kings Mountain, North Carolina; two brothers, Philip (Virginia) Schultz of Remer, Min., and Kenneth (Mercedes) Schultz of Wykoff; sister-in-law, Dorothy Schultz of Rushford; along with numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, eight brothers and four sisters.

The funeral will be 2:00 p.m., Sunday, July 19, 2015, at Christ Lutheran Church in Preston with Rev. Dave Jore officiating. Burial will be in the Greenwood Cemetery in Preston. Friends may call at the church on Sunday from 12:30 p.m., until the time of service.

The family prefers memorials be directed to Christ Lutheran Church, Greenwood Cemetery or the Gundersen Harmony Care Center.

Thauwald Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
