Margaret "Maggie" Franklin

Margaret Ann “Maggie” Franklin, age 82 of Sauk Centre, formerly of St. Paul, died Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at the CentraCare Hospital in Sauk Centre, Minnesota.

Maggie was born in Minot, North Dakota on July 20, 1937 to George A. and Marie (McIsaac) Cuffe.

In 1960, the couple moved to Saint Paul, Minnesota, where Maggie worked as a mail room supervisor at the Federal Land Bank for six years. They later worked together to run Sunset Resort in Backus, Minnesota.

Maggie was a woman true to her heritage and possessed a great love of Irish music. When she wasn’t singing or humming, she could be found cooking a delicious meal or engrossed in a book. Maggie was a prolific reader with a fondness for a good story.
