Horace, ND – On Wednesday, January 29, Victoria Charlotte Dosland, age 62, passed away peacefully in her sleep. She will be forever remembered by her husband of 26 years, Bob Ramsett and daughters, Catherine Dosland, Elizbeth Kleinke (Jonathan), stepdaughters Beth Ramsett and Michelle Hesse, and stepsons Shawn Ramsett (Erin), Jesse Ramsett (Kandra). She will be lovingly remembered by grandchildren Andrew, Ciana, Ryleigh, Max, Toby, MaryKathryn, Samantha, Blake, Lauren, Evan great-grandchild, MaryRuth, and numerous siblings, nieces and nephews.
Vicki was born June 5, 1957, in Moorhead, MN to John Peter Dosland and Barbara Ziegelman and was raised in Alexandria, MN. She graduated from Jefferson Senior High and completed her associate degree in computer programming at Alexandria Technical College.
In 1984, Vicki gave birth to twin girls, Catherine Joanne and Elizbeth Valerie naming them after her twin sisters, Joanne and Valerie. She then moved to the Fargo area to work at Blue Cross Blue Shield and began to make the area her home. On October 30, 1993, she married Bob Ramsett and the two settled and raised their family in Horace, ND.
Vicki loved spending time at her family cabin on Sugar Lake, near Annandale, MN and her cousin’s cabin on Lake Ida, near Lake Audubon. She also loved to travel, camp and delve intensely into her love of reading and true crime cases.
She loved her family deeply and was a proud and dedicated mother. A common refrain to her kids was “I love you to Pluto and back infinity times.” An avid follower of her children’s and grandchildren’s extracurricular activities, no distance was too far to cheer them on during their games and track meets.
Vicki was lovingly referred to as “Elf” for her propensity to make sure her family had things they didn’t know they needed but became indispensable in their day-to-day life. She loved to plan celebrations and poured her heart into making sure significant events like graduations and weddings were events not to be forgotten. Vicki was a smart, witty, fun, and thoughtful woman with a generous heart. She will be missed deeply by her family and friends.
Celebration of life to be arranged at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please pay it forward and be an “elf” in someone’s life with your gift of kindness.
