Margarete C. Molidor passed peacefully away at home on November 27, 2020. Born in Chicago in 1936 to first generation Dutch immigrants, Jacob and Elsie Stob, she moved to Lake County (Ingleside) in 1944. Maggie graduated from Grant High School in 1953, and in 1954, married Gerald C. Molidor, Sr. They were married 56 years, and raised five ‘spirited’ children—Marcie M.

In 1969, Jerry and Maggie moved in to the homestead on Fish Lake Road which has been the site of many happy weddings and large family gatherings for nearly 52 years. After her first career as a busy mother of five, she became the Treasurer of the Village of Round Lake in 1990, a post she held until 2007. She had many wonderful life-long friends, many who traveled together to golf and gamble. There were many exciting trips to Hawaii and Europe with family and friends as well.

(Lois) Stob of Peoria, Arizona, brother-in law, Joel (Patti) Molidor, sisters-in-law Janet (Ted) Stefaniak, Jeanne Kristan of Round Lake, IL, and Mary Jo (Tom) Lucas of Cheyenne, Wyoming.
