Eunice Rustad, 93, Fargo, formerly of Kindred, passed away on Sunday, July 9, 2017 at Villa Maria in Fargo. She was born on July 4, 1924 on the family farm north of Kindred, to Harvey and Annie (Swenson) Laidlaw. After her father passed away, they moved into Kindred where she graduated high school. Eunice then worked for Standard Oil for many years.

Eunice worked for Peterson’s Fairway in Kindred for almost 20 years. Eugene passed away in 1971 and in 1980, Eunice moved to Fargo.

She was a member of Olivet Lutheran Church for 37 years. Eunice was an avid reader, who always had a stack of books nearby. She loved playing games, watching the Twins, and going to her grandson’s sporting events.

She is survived by her sons, Scott of Fargo; and Ross (Candi) of Red Wing, MN; grandson, Ryan (Mya) Rustad, of Perham, MN; 3 great-grandchildren, Lauryn, Nathan, and Blaize Rustad; and many other relatives and friends.

    Eunice was the sister of my former co-worker Harriet Laidlaw. My mother Mary Flewell also lived in the same high rise as Eunice and Harriet. Eunice was such a nice lady, as was Harriet. Scott, I think you worked with my old boyfriend Roger Pederson at Fargo Glass & Paint? I am so sorry for your loss. Condolences to your whole family.

    Ross, Wow! 93 years old. What a long life. I remember your mom so well from frequent visits to Peterson’s and because you and I were friends, in the doorway at your house and at functions. She was always a grounded person, never calling attention to herself, but I also remember her as strong and confident.

    Scott & Ross, I have fine memories of your warm & friendly mom! Be comforted knowing that hundreds of people knew and loved her.

    Scott and Ross, Prayers to you and your families. I didn’t realize that our moms were so close in age. Remember spending many hours at your house and your mom was always a hoot.

    I remember many great times at the Rustad household growing up. Eunice was a great cook, and when we came over to play basketball with Scott and Ross or just to visit, Eunice always made sure we were well fed! She was always a pleasure to be around, and was like another mom to all of us.
