She was born to John and Anna Gamec on Jan. 26, 1924, on the Bohemian Flats in southeast Minneapolis, Minn. She was married to her Marshall High School sweetheart, Max Garten, for 64 years.

Max and their son, Mark, preceded her in death. She was the last of her nine brothers and sisters.

She is survived by her son, Steven (Emily), daughter, Merry (Tom), and daughter, Cheryl (Jeff); seven grandchildren whom she loved so much, Travis (Nicole), Bethany (Kurt), Rebecca, Ryan, Molly (Marcus), Chelsey (Ian) and Megan; and five special great-grandkids who lovingly called her “GG.”

Special “thanks” to her many friends and caregivers at Rosewood on Broadway, whom she loved, and where she resided the past four years of her life.

Services will be held on Friday, Nov. 1, at 11:30 a.m. at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Pequot Lakes, Minn. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Rosewood on Broadway, Fargo, N.D., or a charity of your choice.

Arrangements are with West Funeral Home.
