Carleton, Marguerite King (Mac)
Passed away peacefully on July 8, 2017 after a bout of pneumonia. She was a happy resident of Friendship Village for many years where she enjoyed her neighbors and friends. She is survived by her two daughters, Candice Carleton and Catherine (Don) Hamm; three grandsons, Nick and Andrew Hamm, and Ben Carleton; and one granddaughter, Kelly Carleton; and three great-grandchildren. Mac graduated from the University of Minnesota in Home Economics and worked for the Minneapolis Gas Company before marrying Edward Carleton. She was a marvelous cook and after school snacks were always a treat, not to mention those dill and bread and butter pickles. She also tested early freeze dried foods for the YWCA camps. She was a great walker and exercised around Centennial Lakes and walked to Byerly's for groceries when she lived in the neighborhood. Memorial service will be Thursday, July 20th, 2017 ~ 11 AM at Friendship Village, 8100 Highwood Drive, Bloomington, MN 55438. Private interment ~ Oak Hill Cemetery.
