Maybelle Borgrud

Maybelle Borgrud, 89 of Perham, MN died Wednesday, December 1, 2021, in Sanford Medical Center, Fargo, ND.

Maybelle was born in Bison, SD on December 9, 1931, the daughter of Phillip and Julia (Krischenowski) Ketterling. Soon after graduating from Hettinger High School, she was united in marriage to Marlin Borgrud in Hettinger, ND. The couple moved to Breckenridge, MN where Maybelle worked at drug stores and the Tastee-Freez that she and Marlin owned. Breckenridge was also where she and Marlin had and raised their three children: Jeff, Jason, and Jennifer. Maybelle was very active in the local bowling league and her church, First Baptist Church. She enjoyed church and singing in the choir. From Breckenridge, Maybelle and Marlin moved to their home on Pickerel Lake. This is where she became an active member of Maine Presbyterian Church. She will be remembered for her years singing in the choir, serving coffee, and bringing baked goods to share.

A few years after Marlin died in 1998, Maybelle moved to Perham. In Perham, Maybelle continued to be very social. She volunteered at the Perham hospital gift shop and played countless games of bridge while being the “manager” of the local bridge club.

Preceding Maybelle in death were her parents; her husband Marlin; daughter Jennifer; brothers Phillip, Richard, and Willy; and her sister Viola.

Surviving Maybelle are her sons Jeff (Lois) of Mapleton, ND and Jason of Fargo; granddaughters Alonna, Ivy, Kellie, and Samantha; her great-granddaughter Akasha; her sisters Lorraine, Hilda, and Ester; and her brother Westley.
