Marie Holck May 7, 1935 - Nov. 7, 2013 Marie Mae Borgers Holck was born on May 7, 1935, in Norman Town- ship, Yellow Medicine County, to Gerrit and Ber- tha (Wolvendyk) Borgers. She moved with her fam- ily to Arco when she was four years old. Marie at- tended school in Arco for several years and finished her education in Ivanhoe. She was also raised in her mother's faith of Jeho- vah's Witnesses. After her schooling, she worked for a short while at a potato plant near Watertown, S.D. Marie was then employed at the Stork Brentwood Egg Plant in Tyler until the plant closed. In 1955, atthe Lake Ben- ton Saddle Horse Holiday, she became acquainted with Rondo Holck. Their common interest in horses was the beginning of a long and happy relationship. On Sept. 20, 1957, they were married in Springfield. After their marriage, they rented a farm near Ruth- ton for a few years. Their son Brian and daughter Brenda were born during this time. They eventually had the opportunity to buy Rondo's uncle's farm and moved there in 1961. This family farm is the place they have called home ever since. Horses and other ani- mals were a large part of Marie's life. She was an avid horsewoman from an early age and won many trophies and ribbons throughout the years. Ma- rie and her family would ride horses nearly every day. They would raise and train horses at their farm, which made it far more than a business, but also an enjoyable pastime that involved the entire family. Marie and Rondo owned and operated their horse farm business together as a team, known as Holck's Quarter Horses. She was also a long-time member of various horse-related organizations and activi- ties-Lake Wilson Saddle Club, Southwest Trail Riders Association, Win- dam Quarter Horse Sales, American Quarter Horse Association and Minneso- ta Quarter Horse Associa- tion. Marie's love for animals was her passion from an early age. As a young lady, she nursed baby gophers to health and had even adopted three orphaned baby skunks. She raised other varieties of animals over the years such as calves, chickens and goats. In recent years, she adored her cats and dogs at the farm and always tried to make sure her pets were well cared for. Marie also enjoyed watching her grandchildren grow up, going to horse shows and trail rides, attending auc- tions, gardening, reading, traveling and shopping. Marie passed from this life on Nov. 7 at the Pipe- stone County Medical Cen- ter at the age of 78 years and six months. She will be greatly missed by her fam- ily, neighbors and friends. Marie is lovingly re- membered by her husband Rondo of Ruthton; chil- dren, Brian (Kathy) Holck of Ruthton and Brenda (Dale) Swanson of Tyler; grandchildren, Tashauna Swanson of Marshall, Tra- vis Holck of Jackson, Taylor (Liz) Holck of Madison, S.D. and Hunter Holck of Ruth- ton; one sister, Marcia Kru- ger of Kennewick, Wash.; one sister-in-law, Carolyn Holck of Tyler; four nieces, Terri (Michael) Lovre of Tyler, Shirley (Roger) A1- theide of Marshall, Kathy (Stuart) ]acobson of Bran- don, S.D., and Ann Borgers of Busto Arsizio, Italy, and one nephew, Mark Kruger of Seattle, Wash.
