Velma Viola Sauvageau, Fargo, ND passed away on Friday, January 9, 2015 at Bethany on 42nd.  She was born on March 3, 1927 in Sabin, MN to John and Erna (Rose) Paasch.  Velma grew up in Sabin where she attended school.

After schooling, she worked at home for a time before moving to Fargo where she did housework for various families.  She then worked for Fairmont Creamery for 4 ½ years.

On October 27, 1954 Velma was united in marriage to Guy Sauvageau at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Moorhead, MN and they remained married until his passing on December 31, 2000.  The couple made their home on the family farm near Horace, ND where they raised their children.  She was an active and longtime member of St. Benedict’s Church in Wild Rice, ND.

Velma was a member of the Horace Senior Citizens and volunteered at the Dakota Boy’s Ranch.  She was also a member of a whist club for 56 years.  Velma enjoyed the time she spent with her friends at her Homemaker’s Club.  She liked to do a lot of hand work such as crocheting, knitting, and working in her garden.

    Normal ilPlease accept our deepest sympathy on the passing of your Mother and know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. WeтАЩre truly saddened by your loss and that we are not able to make the trip north for the services. Velma always treated us like her own children when we would come to the farm to visit. Easy to talk to, always eager to listen, she possessed a tremendous amount of character and itтАЩs extremely sad to see her go. We will miss her dearly, but trust in God that she rests in peace now and know that one day we will all be joined together again for that great big reunion in the sky!
