Marguerite Pircer Harms, a self-described “city girl” from Detroit, MI is married to Keith a “farm boy” from Bristow, IA. Their family consists of two daughters Alex Pircer and Erin Colwell and a son, Josh Harms. Marguerite is currently working as a realtor at Century 21 LSB RE and is also a blogger and workshop facilitator. Keith is a teacher and football coach at Hudson High School.
Marguerite loves the quaintness of the Cedar Valley community and its people, in particular, the bike trails and local events that make this area appealing. Her favorite place to shop is downtown Cedar Falls, especially Cup of Joe. This is the place where she and her husband first met on March 5, 2000 and were married exactly ten years later. She also enjoys Vintage Iron, Montage and has made many donations to St. Vincent de Paul.
In their free time, Marguerite and Keith love to go biking, travel and just being out with their two dogs. Their favorite season is fall, where they find the leaves and crisp clean air to be very refreshing. They enjoy connecting with friends and helping with the Cedar Falls Food Co-op when they’re able to. Marguerite also mentors a women’s center for change and runs a networking group. In addition, she loves to cook and enjoys fresh, homemade meals.
As a Cedar Falls Food Co-op member, she says that she “is excited to belong to a community that is dedicated to local, fresh and organic”. Marguerite describes the Co-op as “an electrifying hub with classes, fresh food and a deli where you can meet up with friends and family”. Another benefit she adds is that Co-op members are also given the opportunity to save at local businesses.
