April 30, 1932 - October 11, 2023


Margaret Katheryn (Moeller) Stenvers passed away at home in Bellingham on Wednesday morning October 11, 2023. “Maggie” was born on April 30, 1932, in Browns Valley, Minnesota. She was the firstborn to John L. Moeller and Nina Mae (Looby) Moeller and was the oldest of their seven children. Maggie is survived by her only living sibling Marie Neubauer, five children: Daniel J. Stenvers, Debora J, Morris (Robert), Dawn K. Stenvers, Darin M. Stenvers (Catrina), Theresa Diane Haas (Louis), seven grand-children, eight great-grand-children, and one great-great-grand-child.

During the Depression era, the Moeller family struggled in the mid-western town. They were members of the Catholic Church and the children attended public schools. Maggie graduated high school in 1950 as Valedictorian of her class and married Robert J. Stenvers on August 7, 1950. They moved to Bellingham and raised their family on seventeen acres near Lake Padden. Bob and Maggie sold most of the property for the South Hills development, keeping six acres, where they built their new home. During the early years spent on the property, the family stayed busy with the small farm raising a milk cow, beef steers, and sheep.

Maggie died peacefully in her home at 91 years and six months of age, which was true to her wishes as she vowed to stay in the home until she “turned up her toes”. Maggie was an avid reader and wrote daily in her journal. She loved gardening and tending to her flowering pots on her deck. She fed the squirrels and spoiled Mitzi, her little dog.

A gathering of family and friends will be held on Wednesday, October 18 at 2:00 p.m. at the Moles Bayview facility at Woburn and Lakeway.

  1. Stenvers family,
    I’m sorry for your loss and the loss of a member of the Yew Street family from so long ago. Seeing your moms name really took me back to when we knew just about everyone who lived on the street. I am hoping the rest of your family are doing well and are comforted by the memories.
    Robin (King) Youngquist.

    Maggie was a strong, wonderful person and Mother. She was like a second Mother to me while I was stationed in Washington. I will miss her Christmas cards and her letters to me throughout the years. My sympathy and condolences to the family and friends who knew her. Take care, Maggie. You are in heaven now.
