Barbara "Barb" Mueller, 66, received the biggest angel wings on Friday, July 12, 2019 after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. Barb was born on April 29, 1953 in Watford City, ND to Norman and Evelyn Berg. She graduated from Watford City High School in 1971 and went on to attend UND-Williston. In 1972, Barb, along with her best friend, Lora Wehrung, packed up and moved to Fargo, ND. Soon after, she met Ron Mueller and they were united in marriage on November 24, 1973. In 1978 they purchased their new home in Mapleton, ND where they raised their two daughters, Kelly and Kayla. Throughout Barb's life, she worked at Graybar Electric, Fargo, ND. Raymond Cossette Trucking, Fargo, ND and worked 29 years at Nash Finch, now Spartan Nash, where she had great relationships with so many people she met through the years. She loved taking care of "her stores" and whenever she was in the area, she'd make sure to stop and visit. Barb retired on January 11, 2019. In 2002, her grandson Jaden was born and immediately became the light of her life. For 16 years, the strong bond between them grew to be unbreakable. In 2006, Barb and Ron moved to Fargo, ND and in time bought a condo with her favorite view of a sitting park with large, beautiful trees. She came to love her bird feeder and watching the birds bathe in her birdbath that Kayla and Kelly got for her this past Mother's Day. All the prayers and kind words these past few years meant the world to her. She had a huge support team cheering her on throughout her courageous battle. She was so loved by everyone she knew. Barb is survived by her husband, Ron; her daughters, Kelly (Isaac Johnson) Mueller, Kayla (Brandon Pekas) Mueller and her forever favorite, her grandson, Jaden Mueller; her siblings, Gloria (Mark) Sanford, Joanne (late W. Gordon) Christianson, Kenneth (Milana) Berg, Gordon (Ladonna) Berg, Darrell (Evelyn) Berg, Wayne (Connie Beal) Berg, David (Celeste) Berg, Arden Berg and James (Kimberlye) Berg; and several cousins, nieces and nephews. Barb was preceded in death by her mother, Evelyn Froholm; father, Norman Berg; brother, Bradley Berg; step-father, Orvin Froholm; and her nephew, Michael Berg. A very special thank you to Dr. Howard Russell, Dr. Amit Panwalkar, Dr. Rohit Mahajan, Dr. Robert Sticca, and all of the staff at Roger Maris Cancer Center and Sanford Pain Clinic.

The memorial service will be at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 18, at Olivet Lutheran Church in Fargo, with a visitation one hour prior.

I will always remember her fondly and the fun we used to have when she used to hang out with Lora “Janie”, Maxine, & me, Katie LaPointe. We would be driving around Watford City in that big white convertible with the top down on warm summer evenings back in 1965. She will be missed.

  5. I am so sad to hear of Barb’s passing. It’s been several years that I have seen her, but have often thought of her. We bowled together years ago in West Fargo. The picture of her you put in this notice is exactly how I remember her. She always ALWAYS had that smile on her face. I did see her with her grandson once and she proudly introduced him to me. Heaven has a new angel. God bless you all.
