Margaret Steinbrueck

May 6, 1922 — November 16, 2014

Margaret Marcia Steinbrueck, nee. Byerly, died on November 16, 2014. "Dolly", as she was known by family and friends, was born in 1922, in Mobridge, SD. When she was about two years old, her family moved Mandan, ND, where she attended grade school and Mandan High School. After graduating from high school, she did secretarial work at the capitol in Bismarck, at the Navy Department in Washington DC during the war, and finally, at Ryan Aeronautical in San Diego, CA where she married her high school sweetheart, Robert T. Steinbrueck and their first child was born. After the war, the family returned to Mandan where she had two more children. Although primarily a home maker, she occasionally did secretarial work.

In 1959, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, transferred the family to Salt Lake City and Bountiful, UT, where Bob helped design the power grid from Glen Canyon Dam, AZ. They lived there for five years before he was transferred to Reno, NV, with the bureau. After he died on the job in 1967, she moved to Northglenn, CO, to be closer to her brothers and their families. She resided in the Northglenn/Westminster areas until her death. Dolly felt her greatest achievements in life were being a wife and mother; the first Miss North Dakota in 1939 for the state's Golden Jubilee celebrating fifty years of statehood; winning the "Mrs. Mandan" title and the prize, a Mrs. America stove; and getting the lead role in her high school's operatic plays during her sophomore through senior years. She loved to sing and wished she could have trained and performed in light operatic plays. Her interests included designing and sewing clothes, hats, classical music, writing, and reading.

She is survived in death by her daughters, Marcia Goss of Westminster, CO, and Gretchen Steinbrueck of Broomfield, CO; her daughter-in-law, Donis of Springfield, CO; and grandson, Travis Goss & family of Cheyenne, WY; sisters-in-law, Fran Byerly, Centennial, CO; and Irene Steinbrueck, Detroit Lakes, MN; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert T Steinbrueck; son, Terrance E. Steinbrueck; her father and mother, Clyde and Alma Byerly; her sister, Vava; and brothers, Sterling, John, and Bob. She will be buried in the Mandan Union Cemetery in Mandan, ND.
