Virginia Marie Horner, 84, of Fargo, ND formerly of Linton, ND died on February 25th, surrounded by her family, from complications of Alzheimer’s disease.
Virginia was born the fifth of seven children to Anton and Marcella (Burgad) Horner on October 12, 1936 in Linton, ND.
She attended Linton Public Schools and graduated in 1953. After high school, she was swept off her feet at a local wedding dance by a handsome Army veteran named John J. Horner. They were married at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Linton on May 20, 1956 and together they had five children.
Virginia’s most treasured job was that of raising her children and providing support to John on the farm. She also worked at JC Penney in Linton and Bismarck and later Rosenbluth Travel in Linton.
She loved being involved at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, where she was a member of Christian Mothers and Catholic Order of Forester’s. She also shared her beautiful gift of song as a cantor for weekly masses. Her fudge and divinity were hits at the yearly church festivals. She was also known for her beautifully crocheted Christmas stockings that she made for the newborns in Linton.
Virginia was preceded in death by her parents and siblings; Peter, Helen, Maggie, Michael and Leo. She is survived by her husband, John and children Lori (Rick) Flacksbarth, Perry (Elaine), Kevin (Jeanine), Paul (Kim), Julie (Jeff) Bretherton and sister Delores (Jim) Orler. She is also survived by 12 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Due to COVID restrictions, a private family only funeral Mass is scheduled for Wednesday at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Moorhead, MN. The service will be live streamed on Boulger Funeral Home’s website at www.boulgerfuneralhome.com.
All those that were touched by Virginia know she is already walking the heavenly streets paved with gold and making her delicious kuchen, fudge and divinity for the angels.
