Florence (Flo) Alvina Tingum, 91, Moorhead, MN died Friday, January 21, at Eventide Lutheran Home, Moorhead.
Florence Alvina Hegseth, daughter of Fredrik and Annie (Sylte) Hegseth, was born April 17, 1919 on their home place near Wyndmere, ND. The youngest child, she attended a country school through the eighth grade. Florence married Oscar Tingum October 1, 1938, in Minneapolis, MN and they farmed near Wyndmere, ND. In 1940 they purchased a farm near Walcott, ND where they raised their seven children. They moved into Walcott in 1972. Her husband Oscar passed away March 22, 1990. Florence remained in Walcott until 2004, when she moved into assisted care, and later to Serenity Home.
Florence loved her family dearly. Her greatest enjoyment was being surrounded by family and friends, always welcoming them into her home, making sure no one left hungry. Florence was a member of the Walcott Ladies Aid. She had a passion for reading and was very appreciative of all the cards and letters sent her way. She also looked forward to playing cards with her nieces, nephew, and grandchildren.
Florence is survived by her children, Orvin Tingum, Walcott, ND; Alice Gowin, Breckenridge, MN; Maynard (Darlene) Tingum, Federal Way, WA; Inez (James) Dawson, Boise, ID; Nancy Tingum, Federal Way, WA; 8 grandchildren, 1 step-grandson, 16 great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and her dear friends Lois and Robbi. The family is very appreciative of the wonderful care she received from her friends at The Hospice of the Red River Valley.
She was preceded in death by her husband Oscar, her daughters Lorraine and Ione, brothers Olaf, Lars, Ragnvald, Anders, and Andrew Hegseth, sisters Inga (Hegseth) Jordheim, Molly (Hegseth) Syverson, Gina (Hegseth) Syverson, and step-grandson Patrick O’Flaherty.
