Obituary

Mary “Jean” Wold passed from this life to her heavenly home August 7, 2012. Mary “Jean” Williams was born to James F. Williams and Gladys Forness Williams November 19, 1935 in Moorhead, MN. The family moved to Fargo in 1947 where Jean attended St. Anthony Elementary School. Jean graduated  from Shanley High School in 1953. Jean worked for Blue Cross/Blue Shield of North Dakota before going to work for North Dakota Agricultural College in the Botany Department.

Jean married the love of her life, James Wold, on June 15, 1957 at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, Fargo, Jean and Jim then moved to Rochester, MN where they lived for 12 years. During that time Jean worked as a dental assistant while raising their three children. The family moved to Arizona living there from 1970-1972. In 1972 the Wold family returned to Fargo, making this their home.

Jean was a member of Nativity Catholic Church , Fargo. Jean supported several charitable causes including United Way and Fargo Catholic Schools.  Jean loved spending time with family at their lake home. Her three grandchildren have been a  highlight in her life. Jean enjoyed cooking, reading, and gardening. She maintained a warm spot within her heart for the many dogs that became a part of her life.

Jean and Jim shared many of the same outdoor adventures. Together they enjoyed hunting, fishing, boating, and snowmobiling. One of Jean’s most exciting exploits was flying a plane solo. Jean and Jim spent ten winters in South Padre Island, TX enjoying the beach with family and friends.

Jean’s love of life, family and friends was evident in how she lived each day. Her quiet strength with her ability to take life as it comes is an inspiration to all. Jean is God’s beloved child surrounded by his Holy presence for eternity.

    Greensboro NCDear Uncle Jim and Jeff, Jay and Sara,

    We love you all and are thinking of you. Aunt Jean was so lovely and always so welcoming to this big “Williams” family we are all so lucky to have.

    Some of my fondest memories of all are at your lake cottage with the aunts on the deck catching up and the cousins all having the best fun ever “cousin fun”. Jean made it happen…summer after summer so lovingly!

    Much Much Love from your family here in North Carolina.

    Lora

    Murfreesboro TNDear Jim, Jeff, Jay, and Sarah,

    You are in my thoughts and prayers. Jean was one of my seven beautiful aunts that I admired from afar as I was growing up. I will always remember family times spent at the lake and her kind hospitality as our clan of seven members would spend a day enjoying your Pelican Lake home. As a child, I frollicked in her tangerine chiffon gown and felt like a prom queen myself! Later, as a teen, I recall one Christmas Eve at Grandma and Grandpa’s house when Jean sported a pair of leather pants…how I dreamed of looking as good as she did…(All of my aunts had a knack for classy dressing!). I enjoyed her visits to Arkansas with Grandma Gladys and family meals at the Holiday Inn in Fargo. Because we lived far away, our paths did not cross very often, but I cherish the memories I do have of my dad’s (Jim’s) kid sister and playmate. May the peace that only the Lord can give refresh you during this time of saying goodbye. His arms are everlasting…
    Love to you all,
    Julie
