LaRae’s service will be livestreamed 2:00 PM Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at her site.
LaRae Irene Lindgren, 56, passed away after a courageous fight due to complications with Covid-19, November 26, 2020 surrounded by family at Sanford Medical Center, Fargo.
LaRae was welcomed to the family of Harold and Violet Lindgren on June 1, 1964. She was the youngest of 4 children, born to Violet and Harold. She was often described as growing up with nieces and nephews of her age as some of her fondest memories. Her face lit up talking about the closeness they had. LaRae grew up and attended Fargo South High School. She later went on to get her Diploma in 1989.
LaRae called many places home throughout the years: California, Texas, Iowa, Tennessee, and Minnesota but she always “came home”. She worked various jobs throughout her life, but some of her favorites where she always felt she belonged were: Mental Health Association, Rape and Abuse Crisis Center, Churches United, and recently taking care of her grandchildren and GG’s grandchildren.
LaRae loved to travel, garden, try new foods, old country music, and she was the most notorious bargain shopper. “Savers” will miss her.
Mom had the most contagious laugh. She found humor in every situation. She was the most outgoing, friendly person and could spark a conversation with even a stranger. She considered everyone “her friend”. Above all, LaRae loved her family, children, grandchildren, and 4 chihuahuas! She cherished them and never missed a birthday event if she could help it. We knew we could count on her coming with pride in the crowd and was always our greatest cheerleader.
LaRae exhibited this love most recently in the last 2 years as she fought her hardest battle. She had been on the waiting list for multiple organ transplants. She showed so much strength and perseverance, and never lost her witty humor through it all. We are so thankful for the additional time we got, even on the toughest days.
LaRae is survived by her children, Anna Lindgren of Fargo, Crystal (Adam) Walker of Frazee, MN, Michel Lindgren of Austin, TX, Jessica Lindgren of Fargo; grandchildren, Destiny, Aaliyah, Taylor, Greyson, Skylar, Ashton; sister, Karen (Fernando) Ochoa; brother in law, Juan Hernandez; her four fur babies, Milo, Max, Marley and Mario; and many nieces and nephews.
LaRae is preceded by her parents; sister, Judy Hernandez; and brother, Harold Jr. Lindgren.
