Marian Gertrude Wagner was born on Thursday May 21, 1925 to Matt and Margaret (Monzel) Wagner at Webster, South Dakota. She was baptized and confirmed at St. Otto’s Catholic Church in Webster. The family made their home on a farm in Morton Township, southwest of Webster, South Dakota. She attended country school near her home and St. Otto’s Catholic School in Webster, graduating from Webster High School in 1943. After graduation, she worked at the Pacific Grain Elevator.
On June 29, 1948, she married Theodore Joseph Breske at St. Otto’s Catholic Church in Webster. The couple made their home in Racine Township and farmed until 1963. The family then moved to Waubay for a short time, and then to Webster in 1971. Marian was a very hard worker, working outside the home most of her adult life. She worked for Pilgrim Cleaners until 1975, when the couple opened Breske’s Café on Main Street. Mr. Breske passed away in 1982. Marian continued to operate the café for 17 years, serving the community her renowned pancakes, caramel and cinnamon rolls, hash browns and other great food! She sold the business in 1992. (The cafe was recently transferred to its fourth owner and operates today as The Diner on Main.) Marian then worked part-time for the soil conservation office until she fully retired in 1999.
Marian was a member at Christ the King Catholic Church where she was active in the Altar Society. She enjoyed time spent at her lake cabin on Enemy Swim Lake where she was known as “Grandma Jet Ski”!
