Margaret Marie Racek was born April 28, 1925 in Glyndon, Minnesota to Emil and Mary L. Racek (Vopalensky). The family returned to Nebraska in 1930 and settled in Morse Bluff. Margaret went to school in Morse Bluff, North Bend and graduated from Malmo High School.

She married Andrew J. Wielgus October 6, 1943 at Saint Charles Catholic Church in North Bend. After their marriage, they spent several winters in Omaha working for both the Swanson and Swift Packing Company. The couple later returned to live permanently on a farm north of North Bend where they raised two daughters, Mary Jo and Beverly Ann. When Andy retired, they moved into North Bend. Andy died July, 4, 1987.

Margaret worked at various locations in North Bend including North Bend Drug, Birchwood Manor, Weldon Industries, and North Bend Mini Mart. She loved her jobs and the customers she served.

Margaret was the sweetest of women. She was one of the first I met when I came to North Bend in 2006. She was alwas among the first, if not the first, to arrive for Saturday evening Mass, so we often had time to chat. I remember her telling me that she was related to a Fullerton parishioner of mine, John Zuroske. Now, reading her obituary, I can see how they were related. I will have a priest friend of mine in the west African nation of Togo celebrate a Mass
for her.
