Margaret was born April 27, 1942 to Jacob and Maggie (Zimmerman) Moser in Eureka, SD. She was raised in Ashley, ND where she attended school. As a young lady she moved in with her sister, Esther, and helped out watching Esther's children.
She married Elroy Scherbenske on March 8, 1963. They made their home on a farm near Leola, SD. They moved to Roscoe, SD where Elroy took a job as a mechanic. While in Roscoe, Margaret raised her family and eventually became the babysitter for her grandchildren.
Margaret's family and her faith were the center of her life. While she enjoyed travelling with Elroy, fishing and craftwork, it was her time spent with her family that she most treasured.
She centered her life on her faith. She had just recently joined the North Highland's United Methodist Church in Aberdeen after a being a long time member of the church in Roscoe. It was her faith that prepared her pass on to Jesus' arms on Saturday, November 6, 2010 at the Golden Living Center in Ipswich.
Thankful for having shared in her life are her husband, Elroy, of Roscoe; her sons, Ernest (Gail) Scherbenske of Roscoe and Eric Scherbenske of Huron, SD; three sisters, Esther Buchholz of Jamestown, ND, Betty (Darvin) Goebel of Wishek, ND and Mary Wick of Plains, MT; two grandchildren, Adrianne (Bo) Hochhalter of Tulare, SD and Jamie Scherbenske of Roscoe and two great-grandchildren, Addyson and Emery.
Her parents, one brother, Rubin Moser and two brothers-in-law, Leonard Buchholz and Daniel Wick preceded her in death.
