Margie Fridgen

Margie Beth (McElwain) Fridgen, age 88, of Wheaton, Minnesota passed away peacefully on June 21, 2022 at the Traverse Care Center after a short time in hospice.

She was born April 26, 1934 to Herbert and Esther McElwain and grew up on various farms in the Wheaton area, surrounded by a large extended family and many cousins. She attended country school, graduated from Wheaton High School, and worked for more than fifty years in the front office of Wheaton law firms, finally retiring in her mid-70’s. She was known for her friendliness, willingness to lend a hand, many flower gardens, always having fresh-baked cookies, the cat in the front window, and as “mom” to our friends as we grew up. She will be greatly missed by family and many friends.

Margie was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Donnie and Willis McElwain, ex-husband Don Fridgen, and son Alan Fridgen.

Margie is survived by daughter Janet Fridgen, grandchildren Will Fridgen and Anna Rupp, and great-grandson Lukas Fridgen.

A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, July 30, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. at Bainbridge Funeral Home in Wheaton with Fr. Stanley Wieser officiating, and visitation starting at 11:30 a.m. Lunch will follow the service at the Wheaton American Legion.
