Marie Harris Folkestad, 96, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, September 13, 2021, while at home with family by her side. Marie was born on June 4, 1925 to Charles E. Harris and Florence (Carter) Harris in Hewitt, MN, the second of six children. She graduated from Hewitt High School in 1943. On June 7, 1946, Marie married Roger Folkestad of Wadena. She devoted her life to her family and was a wonderful mother to their six children. Marie was a member and very involved in the Wadena Alliance Church. She enjoyed gardening, ceramics, sewing, needlework, and especially cooking and baking. She enjoyed spending time with friends and family, playing Rook, and was a faithful fan of the Timberwolves and Lynx. Marie and Roger were blessed to celebrate their marriage of 75 years this past June. Marie was always kind, loving, and caring to all and will be greatly missed. We look forward to reuniting with her again one day. Marie is survived by her husband, Roger; children, Connie (Dave) Steiner of Menahga, Chuck (Becky) Folkestad of Park Rapids, Curt (Deb) Folkestad of Wadena, Craig (Eve) Folkestad of Wadena, Cheri (Rick) Klemond of Duluth, and Christi (Dave) Nelson of Wadena; 25 grandchildren, 41 great grandchildren with 3 on the way; sisters-in-law Jeanette Harris, Gerry Harris, and Sharlene Harris; and many nieces and nephews. Marie was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Marjorie (Herb) Nelson; brothers, Mervin, Lauren (Ardy), Ivan, and Glenn; and granddaughter Lori Klemond. Marie’s family extends heartfelt appreciation to those that cared for her in her home over the past 3 years and to the compassionate care recently given by Knute Nelson Hospice. The family suggests memorials be directed to the Historical Society, or Missions. Arrangements are with the Schuller Family Funeral Homes & Cremation Services, Johnson-Schuller Chapel, Wadena, MN.
