Margy Ellen Gramlow was born September 20, 1928, to Fred and Dagmar (Anderson) Gramlow in Aberdeen, at St. Luke’s Hospital, as Oakes, North Dakota did not have a hospital.  She attended rural country grade school at Clement, ND.  In 1946, Margy graduated from Oakes High School before attending business college in Valley City, ND.  She was employed as a bookkeeper.  

On May 16, 1959, Margy married Ben Zacher of Aberdeen, where they made their home.  She was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church and was active in the LWML, the Publicity Circle as well as the Quilting Guild.  Margy and Ben shared just over 48 years together before he passed away on May 19, 2007.  Margy continued to reside in Aberdeen until 2018, when she became a resident of a nursing home in Groton.  

Survivors include three daughters:  Diane (William) Toby of Rockville Centre, NY, Beverly (Doug) Arens of Mesa, AZ and Bonnie (Roger) Thorson of Willmar, MN.  Margy was also the proud grandmother of her two grandchildren, two step-grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.

May she Rest in Peace.
