Marjorie Faye Kosmalski was born on Christmas Day December 25, 1934 in Tyler, MN to parents Nils and Martina (Corehouse) Anderson.

Her grandfather was the honorable Judge R.M. Anderson whom she adored. She was raised in the Taunton area and attended district 79 country school and then attended and graduated from Minneota High School in 1952.

Directly after graduating, she started working at the State Bank of Taunton and did so for 48 years.

On June 6, 1953 Marjorie was united in marriage to Larry LeRoy Kosmalski at the Hope Lutheran Church in Minneota, MN and to this union they were blessed with one son, Bryce.

Together they raised their son on the farm and Marjorie helped Larry with everything she could from milking cows to field work.

Both Marjorie and Larry would work side by side even in making pies and lefse. Larry died on August 3, 2014 after 61 years of marriage.

Marjorie enjoyed riding horse especially with her best friend Mavis.

She also enjoyed gardening and raising beautiful flowers, especially roses and orchids. Her favorite color was purple and in the last few years she found enjoyment in watching the dogs on the farm as well as spending time with her kitty.

Time spent with her family meant the world to her.

She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Canby. Grateful for having shared Marjorie’s life is her son, Bryce (Wendy) Kosmalski of Porter; her three grandchildren: Sara Verschelde of Mankato, MN, Shawn Kosmalski of Clarkfield, MN and Taylor (LeAnn) Kosmalski of Taunton, MN; four great-grandchildren: Jon and Jack Verschelde and Madden and Brooklyn Kosmalski; one brother, Nils “Dick” (Rose) Anderson of Porter, MN and nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents and her husband.
