Marvin Reitmeier

March 17, 1922 — June 14, 2016

Marvin Harold Reitmeier, age 94, of Crookston, Minnesota passed away at Riverview Hospital with his family by his side. Marvin was born on March 17, 1922 to Edward and Ida (Wentzel) Reitmeier, Sr. in rural Lowell Township. He attended country school. He was united in marriage to Aldores Jorgenson on July 14, 1946 in Fisher, Minnesota, and made their home on a farm south of Crookston, MN. Marvin spent his life farming raising grain and sugar beets. He was especially proud to have been recognized for having the highest sugar per acre for his beet crop in 1981 over the entire region.

He stayed connected with his brothers and nephews over the years by going fishing, and hunting at "deer camp". He was elected Polk County Commissioner and served 16 years in that capacity having a seat on various boards in the county. He was also a board member of the Association of Minnesota Counties, the Hammond Township Board, and served many years on the Crookston Farmers Co-op Elevator Board. Marvin spent many winters in Texas with his wife Aldores. He loved meeting his neighbors and friends at RBJ's for coffee and toast in the mornings where he rolled dice for the bill. He loved his family and joined in on many trips with them in his later years. He was an avid Minnesota Twins fan and even attended a game last summer ! Marvin's final years were spent living at the Summit Assisted Living apartments in Crookston where he thrived with the wonderful care he received there.
