Mayme Ann Jurgens was born on August 31, 1911 to Frank and Anna (DeGreef) Kockx in Milbank, South Dakota. Her early years were spent on a farm near Hartford Beach and later the family moved to Big Stone City.

Mayme married Albert Jurgens on June 23, 1933 and they made their home in Ortonville. Mayme was a devoted wife and mother to their three children. Much later in her life she worked for three years for her son, Slim, in his local Sears store.

Mayme was a member of St. John's Catholic Church. She was also active in her neighborhood Birthday Club for many, many years.

Mayme found pleasure in crocheting, baking, and cooking – and was especially fond of cooking for her children and grandchildren. She was a homemaker through and through. Mayme was known for the love and warmth she gave to all who came in contact with her – always viewing others in a positive light.

Mayme passed away on Friday, March 8, 2013 at Northridge Residence in Ortonville, having reached the age of 101.

Left with her loving memory are her children: Beverly (Eugene) Cloos of Big Stone City, SD; Francis "Slim" (Marylin) Jurgens of Ortonville, MN: and Susan (Steve) Roggenbuck of Blaine, MN; nine grandchildren; 13 great grandchildren; and 4 great-great grandchildren.

Mayme was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Albert, in 1988; her two sisters: Elnora Hirmer and Virginia Tuscherer; and her brother, Phil Kockx.
