Miriam Louise Hallock, 78, Sturgis, died unexpectedly Thursday, January 31, 2013, at Sturgis Regional Hospital. This tragic loss is immeasurable for her family, her friends, and her community.
Miriam was born in St. Cloud, Minn. on January 15, 1935, to Newton and Louise (Howe) Olson, but she was a South Dakota girl through and through. She graduated from Rapid City Central in 1952, and after a brief stint trying out the "big city" life in Minneapolis, she returned to Philip, S.D. in the summer of 1954 where she met and married Morris Gene Hallock.
