   Margaret Mary, daughter of Henry and Catherine (Steffes) Starman, was born November 3, 1919, near Raeville, NE. Shortly after her birth they moved back to Iowa. Margaret attended school at Holy Angels in Roselle. During her last year in school she worked at home quite a lot as her mother was not well.  After completing her schooling, she ‘worked out’ doing housework and helping families with new babies.    On October 1, 1940, Margaret was united in marriage with Jerome Kasperbauer at St. John’s Catholic Church in Adair, her parents’ parish. Margaret and Jerome lived on a farm near Manning and were the parents of three children.  Margaret was a homemaker and also helped with farm work, gardened, raised chickens and babysat over the years. She was a member of Sacred Heart Parish, Altar Society, and Catholic Daughters of the Americas. Margaret was a member of the Chat and Sew Club, enjoyed playing bingo and playing cards with family and friends.   After retiring, Margaret and Jerome moved into the Lamp Apartments in Manning in 2002. Jerome died on March 11, 2006 and Margaret continued to live in their apartment until she moved to Char-Mac Assisted Living in Manning in June 2016.  She died there on Sunday, March 5, 2017 at the age of 97 years, 4 months and 2 days.    Margaret is preceded in death by her parents; husband; daughter Judy, as a baby; granddaughter Amy Kasperbauer; sisters Rose Starman, Theresa Mayer and Sophie Rees; brothers Anton, Bernard and Tony Starman; brothers-in-law: Paul Mayer; Don, Ray, and Francis Kasperbauer; Orville Kerkhoff; Henry Handlos; and John Kahler; sisters-in-law Lorraine Starman, Eunice Starman, Genevieve Handlos and Bonita Kahler; and parents-in-law Boniface and Bernadine Kasperbauer.    She is survived by her children David Kasperbauer and wife Deb of Manning and Mary and husband Dwight Hazen of Crescent; 8 grandchildren: Michael (Erika) Kasperbauer; Jeremy Kasperbauer; Brandon (Lindsey) Kasperbauer; Mark (Stacy) Hazen; Sarah (Greg) Rodenburg; Jennifer (Chris) Weber; Scott (Ashley) Hazen and Laura Hazen (friend Kyle Suder); 17 great-grandchildren; 2 great-great grandchildren; brother Louis Starman of Carroll; sisters-in-law Dorothy Kerkhoff of Audubon and Marie O’Gorman of Greeley, NE; brother-in-law Milo Rees of Guthrie Center; other relatives and friends.
