Marjorie Helen Black-Fehlberg, a 1953 graduate of Havre High School and
wife of late Borrego Springs Fire Chief Allen F. Fehlberg, died from cancer
Friday, May 26, 2006, at her home in San Diego.
At 16 years of age, she worked at the stockyards in Havre. She met Allen
F. Fehlberg when she worked at Bob's Drive In, and they were married on Aug.
Black-Fehlberg's greatest joy, besides her family, was being one of the
few women stock car racers in 1963 and 1964. After surviving two brain
surjeries in 1980, she ran a contract post office from her home in Crest,
Calif. A few years later, they moved to Borrego Springs, Calif., when my dad
bacame the fire chief. When he died in 1995 from congestive heart failure,
she lived with her daughter, Laurie Matthews, in El Cajon, Calif. Last
August she attended the Fossil Festival in Havre.
She loved to laugh and was full of humor
