Margaret Ann Wanserski, 84, of Rosholt, went to her heavenly home early Saturday morning, May 30, 2015, at Ministry St. Michael’s Hospital.

She was a devoted wife, loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Her interests included crafting, baking, gardening (she sold produce to the Co-op), canning garden produce and she enjoyed her flowers and especially tending her raspberry garden. Margaret was a member of the Sacred Heart Rosary Society and she had been an usher at church.
