Michael Maurice Jorgenson was born December 10, 1933 in Hutchinson, Minnesota to Irving and Mary (Scanlon) Jorgenson. Mike attended school in Hutchinson where he graduated with the Class of 1952. He furthered his education at South Dakota State University where he obtained a pharmacy degree in 1959. On September 25, 1954 Mike was united in marriage to Joan Mary Filk in Glencoe, Minnesota. Mike worked at pharmacies in Marshall and Sleepy Eye before opening Mike’s Rexall Drug in Annandale in 1962. He sold the pharmacy in 1971 when he purchased a different pharmacy out in Idaho. After a short time, Mike and Joan returned to Minnesota where they purchased Hogan Drug in Foley.
