Maria established deep friendships and spiritual comraderies by sharing many cultural traditions with others.
She loved cultural dances and brought her enthusiasm to many gatherings and events.
She grew up in Fargo, ND and graduated in 1991 from West Fargo High School. She previously had been an active member of Nativity Catholic Church and choir. She was a baker by profession and was employed by Hornbachers’s Supermarket for over 20 years.
Her friends and family were eager to indulge in her excellent culinary and baking skills.
Incidentally, you younger folks may not know that John Myhre owned and operated Myhre’s Dept store, right next to the Red Owl Store.
My Uncle Thobve Landsverk built and operated that store untill he died suddenly during surgery at a Bottineau hospital.
She is survived by parents Gregory and Katherin La Croix (Nerpel), grandmother, Eleanor Nerpel, brothers, Eric and Gabriel, sister, Gina, nephews Zachary, Ethan, and Mathew, nieces Morgan, Nichole, Vanessa and Marissa, plus many cousins, aunts and uncles.
Visitation Prayer Service: Boulger Funeral Home, Fargo Sunday March 26, 2017, 2PM – 4 PM followed by prayer service at 4 PM.
I am sure Lloyd Awalt remembers Myhre’s Dept Store.
Gary Metcalfe mentioned my uncle Halvor a few days earlier, about his poetry and journalistic skills, all i can say is that uncle Halvor had an aversion to heavy physical work and only did so when there were no other options.
Erling, We are excited to hear your report after you talk to Janice.
