Margie G. Axell

Axell, Margie G., age 85 of Plymouth, passed away 3/31/23.  Preceded in death by husband, Douglas; son, Scott; and parents, Fern and Leonard Heath.  Survived by daughter, Sheryl (Lynn) Streeter; daughter-in-law, Lorene Axell; grandchildren, Angela Streeter, Cory (Becky) Streeter, Amber (Justin) Peterson, Scotty (Katie) Axell and Autumn (Chris) Herold; 6 great-grandchildren; sister, LaVonne Moss; brother, Wayne (Linda) Heath; other relatives and friends.

Margie was born Sept. 22, 1937, in Brookings, S.D., to Leonard and Fern Heath.  The family relocated to South Minneapolis in early childhood.  Margie graduated from Washburn High School in 1956, and married Douglas Axell in 1957.  Daughter Sheryl and son Scott soon followed.

Margie loved the sunshine.  Her favorite vacation spots were Hawaii and Florida, where she soaked in the rays with family and friends.  Back in Minnesota, she would commonly be found tanning on the back deck or poolside of her home reading a magazine, or on the dock at the cabin playing solitaire.  Her summertime staple food was a California burger on the grill.  On the lake, she continued to waterski all the way up to age 75.

Margie was a meticulous housekeeper and took great pride in her homes and lawn maintenance.  Forever the host, Margie enjoyed assembling the annual family Christmas party at her home.  She also maintained lifelong friendships from her high school class at Washburn, and attended numerous class reunions and social functions over the years.  Always in search of a deal, Margie took on a job at Dayton’s later in life.  She discovered she enjoyed not only the employee discounts, but also the camaraderie of her coworkers.  She stayed on through the Marshall Field’s and Macy’s name changes, and amassed an impressive collection of Santa Bears and designer clothes in the process.

Margie loved her family, friends, fashion, Elvis, Pepsi, and owls.  She will be missed, but is now enjoying eternal sunshine and peace.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.  Interment Glen Haven Memorial Gardens.  Memorials preferred to donor’s choice.
