Mrs. Hurt was born on March 7, 1919, on a farm northwest of Ravenna, the daughter of Ignes and Anna (Seifert) Schroll. Her husband, Arnold E. Hurt preceded her in death on Feb. 12, 1984. She is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Carolyn and Dennis Kresha of Columbus and Rosemarie and Tom Mrkvicka of Farwell; and two sons and one daughter-in-law, Michael and Rosalie Hurt of Seward and Alfred Hurt and special friend, Janice Sintek of Johnson Lake; and a sister, Marie Kusek of Loup City. She also leaves to cherish her memory 13 grandchildren and spouses, Ron and Wendy Kresha, Jeff and Kerin Kresha, Terri and Chad Stuart, Jennifer and Matt Mestl, Marty and Jeana Mrkvicka, Monty and Nancy Mrkvicka, Chris and Jeff Harvey, Michelle and Paul Gardner, Natalie and Bill Nitzsche, Nate and Tina Hurt, Matt and Mikayla Hurt, Crystal Hurt and Dustin Hurt and 30 great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Rosanda Schroll of Ravenna, Dorothy Goc and Margie and Ernie Kuszak, all of Loup City, Lorraine Wahl of Oro Valley, AZ, Bob and Marilyn Hurt and Maxine Hurt, all of Ashton. Marguerite grew up on the family farm and attended Sherman County rural schools and graduated from Ravenna High School in 1936. She then attended Kearney Teachers College for two years. She taught at various country schools in the Ravenna, Ashton and Litchfield areas. She was united in marriage to Arnold E. Hurt on June 28, 1943, at Ravenna. While Arnold served in the military, Marguerite lived with his parents and continued to teach school until his return. The couple farmed 14 miles west of Loup City the remainder of their married life together. After Arnold’s death she moved into Loup City where she worked at Janda’s Café and later for the Loup City Drive Inn. Marguerite was an active member of St. Josaphat’s Catholic Church, Council of Catholic Women, Rosary Sodality, St. Ann’s Quilters, Servites of Mary, Religious Education teacher, Lector, Eucharistic Minister, Quest group, Healing Minister and parish representative for the DCCW, and initiated honoring couples of the parish on their special wedding anniversaries every Valentine’s Day; she was also a member of the American Legion Auxiliary, Hospital Auxiliary and was awarded the 2002 Volunteer of the year by the Sherman County Community Foundation. She was an accomplished seamstress, and enjoyed reading, quilting and crocheting. She enjoyed her volunteer time of being a “servant to all” for many people – young and old in the community. Marguerite was important to her community but even more important to her family. She was not only the matriarch of her family; she was their loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. They will miss her dearly. In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; two grandchildren, Thomas Hurt and Delphie Mrkvicka; and two brothers, Ferdinand and David Schroll. In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Evergreen Cemetery, St. Josaphat’s Catholic Church, Loup City Senior Center or the family’s choice.

Dear Hurt Family, we are so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved mother. She was so sweet and caring to my Mom when they were roomates. I am sure they are up in Heaven now, reminiscing about the good times they had., With love and prayers, Gene & Ellen (Augustyn) Wood
