Margaret was born in a sod house in Freeman, South Dakota, on January 29, 1930, the daughter of Jacob and Ruth (Mayer) Schorzman. She attended elementary schools in South Dakota and Texas and high school at Concordia High School, Seward, Nebraska. She attended college and earned degrees at Concordia University, Seward, Nebraska, and Benedictine College, Atchison, Kansas.

Margaret taught a total of 11 years in Lutheran Schools in Omaha, NE, Galena Park, TX, and Leavenworth, KS, and one year at the Atchison Catholic Elementary School in Atchison. She enjoyed voice, singing, and was an active soloist for many years. Additionally, she served as a substitute teacher in Atchison Public Schools and worked five years as a switchboard operator at the Benedictine College South Campus.

Margaret was a dedicated wife and deeply supportive of her husband Karl’s ministry in Lutheran schools. Her goals were to walk with Jesus, be a good Christian wife and mother, and a Christian example to her students. She was spiritually committed to share with and edify others on their journey to a better land, always striving to keep her life simple and wholesome.

On July 9, 1954, Margaret married Karl John Ohlmann in Woodland, CA, where they resided in California until moving to Atchison in July 1969. Margaret considered it a true privilege and great service to our Lord that she was able to care for Karl in their home for eight years after his stroke until his passing on September 25, 1998. Their marriage was blessed with five children.

This beautiful angel will be missed here on earth as she begins her eternity in God’s Kingdom. She awaits her two sons, Timothy Ohlmann, Holton, KS; and Paul (Carol) Ohlmann, Lakewood, CA; her daughters, Cynthia (Burdel) Welsh, Las Vegas, NV; Alison (Dan) Strubberg, Bloomington, IL; Susan (Tom) Nunn , China Grove, NC; and her four grandchildren, Jim (Zila) Welsh, Brian Welsh, Joshua (Amanda) Nunn, and Megan Gaboda. Her only sister, Doris Reith, Tempe, AZ, always had a special place in her heart and survives her, along with her nieces Theresa Leyes and Stephanie Reith, and nephew Chris Reith, and countless friends. She was preceded in death by her father, mother, and cherished stepmother, Josephine Schorzman.

Her children are genuinely thankful to special friends and neighbors for their loyal friendship and love to Margaret during the latter years of her earthly life, enabling her to remain in her home, which she loved and treasured, for as long as possible. They are equally as thankful to the Atchison Senior Village staff that provided her care with great concern and smiles during the last years.

I treasured my friendship with Margaret. She was as shining example of the "greatest generation"! God's peace to all of her family and friends. I fell confident she was greeted at Heaven's gate with the words "Well done, good and faithful servant"!
