Margaret was born on July 7, 1906, on a farm near Walton, NE to
William and Lydia (Gottula) Spatz. She attended rural grade school which was located next to the family farm. Margaret graduated from Walton High School in 1922, and the University of Nebraska in Lincoln in 1926 where she majored in Home Economics.
Margaret taught for two years- one year at Deshler, Nebraska High School and the second year at the rural school which she attended when she was a young girl.
On June 3, 1928, she married Arlin Bereuter, whom she met while both attended the University. They lived at Utica, NE where Arlin was in the auto, implement and hardware business with his father and brother.
Besides being a loving wife and mother, Margaret was involved in various community activities, including the Red Cross, The Utica Garden Club, and was also a 4-H leader. She belonged to various church activities at St. Paul Lutheran Church including choir, Ladies Aid, quilting, knitting, crocheting and ceramics.
After Arlin died, Margaret moved to Green Valley, AZ in 1990 where one of her daughters was living. She was an active member of the Lutheran Church of the Risen Savior, being involved with the quilters group and LWML.
In these last years she had been a resident of La Posada Retirement Complex, first in an apartment on campus, then at the assisted living, and the final year at the La Via Memory Care Unit.
Margaret is survived by two daughters and husbands, Margaret and Delmer Roth of Beaumont, TX and Dorothy and Willis Mundt of Green Valley AZ; six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren. Margaret was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Arlin Bereuter; sisters and husbands, Louise and Carl Lemke, Gertrude and Arthur Mehrens; two brothers who died in infancy; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Rupert and Evelyn Bereuter.
