Marcia Ann Fruck was born on May 4, 1924, in Hutchinson, Minnesota. She was the daughter of Alfred and Marcia (Rebstock) Stegmeier. She was baptized as an infant on August 15, 1929, at First Congregational Church in Hutchinson and later confirmed in her faith as a youth. She received her education in Hutchinson and was a graduate of the Hutchinson High School Class of 1942.
On September 4, 1943, Marcia Ann was united in marriage to Werner Fruck at their home in Hutchinson. This marriage was blessed with three children, Marcia, Barbara, and David. Marcia Ann and Werner resided in Hutchinson. Marcia Ann and Werner shared 72 years of marriage until the passing of Werner on August 25, 2015.
Marcia Ann worked at Hutchinson Utilities after graduation. She and Werner started the North Side Grocery in 1949 until 1956. Marcia Ann then worked at JCPenney and then returned to Hutchinson Utilities. In 1963, she started working at the Hutchinson Medical Center and continued to work there for 33 years until retiring in 1996.
Marcia Ann enjoyed Bridge and joined several clubs over the years. That was the greatest loss to her when she went blind as she couldn’t play cards anymore. She also enjoyed cross-stitch, knitting afghans, reading, and being on her computer. She loved having family around and many gatherings to see everyone grow up.
When Marcia Ann needed assistance with her daily care, she became a resident of Harmony River Living Center in Hutchinson on July 7, 2015. She passed away there on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, at the age of 94 years.
