Nystul, Marguerite  
MARGUERITE NYSTUL 1926 ~ 2015 One thing mom always appreciated in reading the obituaries was the cause of death. "I know they died, why else would they be here. It would just be nice to know how." So mom, for your Obit, let's just say you were tired and worn out. What else can you say about a person that had very limited health issues until they passed? On April 2nd around 8:30 in the morning, the Lord said it was time for her to join Dad who preceded her in passing. So after nine years, they are finally back together again. Her passing was quick and comfortable with many friends and family being with her the day before. Always by her side were her daughter, Sue and granddaughter, Elyse until she passed. Mom, Marguerite Helen Laske, was born in 1926 five miles west of Leonard, ND on the family farm to Edwin and Luella Laske. She was the eldest of four girls, Beverley (currently of Fargo, ND), Audrey (Vancouver, WA) and Maureen (Fargo, ND). She attended grade school in Woods, ND and graduated from Leonard High School in 1944. From 1944-1948, she attended a vocational school and a Business College in Milwaukee, WI. During this period, she worked as a payroll clerk in Milwaukee and later assumed her fathers role in a Coast-to-Coast hardware store in Leonard. In 1950, she moved to Portland, OR and started working at the Federal Reserve Bank. 1951 she married Dad, Ross Curtis Nystul, and started a life together. In 1952 Stan was born and then Sue in 1954. She was a stay-at-home mom until the mid sixties when she started doing day care. In the early seventies, she took a position as a teachers aide at Portsmouth Middle School which she held for twelve years before retiring. In retirement, she and dad enjoyed traveling and doing volunteer work for FISH. She is survived by son and daughter-in-law, Stan and Claudia Nystul; and daughter, Sue Pastor; seven grandchildren and spouses; and three great-grandchildren. One thing Mom and Dad never missed was Lawrence Welk on Saturday Night. So in-lieu of flowers, we are requesting donations to OPB in their name to help keep Lawrence on the air. Services were held and committal was at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, OR. Arrangements entrusted to Gresham Memorial Chapel. Please sign her guest book at: www.columbian.com/obits .
