Marjorie Bromstad of Rocheter, MN and formerly of Grand Rapids, MN and Merritt Island, FL passed away at Cottagewood Senior Living on Sunday, November 28, 2021 at the age of 92. Marge was born September 19, 1929 in Robbinsdale, MN. She attended Sacred Heart Catholic School and Robbinsdale High School, graduating in 1947. She married her high school sweetheart Wally Mix in 1951. He passed away in a home building accident in 1956. In 1960, Marge married Lyle Ostergaard who passed away in 1992. Paul Bromstad came into her life and they married in 1995. Marge was a lunch server in the Robbinsdale School District for 30+ years, primarily at Armstrong High School but also at Cooper High School. She enjoyed meeting and visiting with the students. She took up knitting at a young age and one thing she wanted to make was an afghan for each of the four grandchildren as an engagement/wedding gift and she was able to see that happen prior to her death. She was an avid card player and enjoyed creating in multiple types of handcrafts. A get away night for her was the Tuesday women's bowling league which she participated on for many years. One would occasionally find Marge on the golf course competing with her brother, Bob and sister-in-law, Bernice, along with Paul. Marge was involved with various groups and organizations: rosary maker at Divine Mercy Catholic Church in FL, Sassy Red Hat group in FL, Moose Club in FL, and a Widowers group in FL. Upon coming to Rochester, she helped her daughter Linda with St. Vincent de Paul and the Relay for Life fundraisers. After retirement, Paul and Marge moved to Merritt Island, FL and came back to Pokegama Lake in Grand Rapids for the summer months. Marge loved her cabin on Pokegama, pontoon rides and that wonderful beach. She loved spending time with family at the Lake. They were both blessed to be able to travel, which included a few trips to Hawaii to see Paul's son Mark, a cruise to Alaska, and a cruise on the Danube River. Australia and New Zealand was another highlighted trip, as was their trip to France. Paul's children reside in various parts of the United States so they also saw the states of Delaware and Alabama.
