Everett Raymond Peterson, 87, Fargo, ND passed away on Friday, September 14, 2018 at Sanford Health in Fargo. He was born on January 15, 1931 in Woodworth, ND to Everett and Emma (Hausaur) Peterson. He grew up in Woodworth and graduated from Woodworth High School. Following graduation, Everett taught at the school before he moved to Jamestown where he worked at the music store. He also played the accordion for dances and gave lessons. Everett then moved to Fargo to attend Interstate Business College and Moorhead State University where he earned an accounting degree. He worked at Daveau Music Store in Fargo for a few years until he began his employment with Shirley-Onstad Plumbing and Heating as the controller. He worked there for the next 25 years. Everett then started his own accounting business, ER Enterprises. He owned and operated the company until his retirement in 2002. On November 11, 1955 Everett was united in marriage to Delores Herzog at First Lutheran Church in Fargo. The couple made their home Fargo where they raised their daughter. In 1968 they built a home on Lake Lizzie where they spent their summers for the next 40 years. Everett was a music lover who enjoyed playing music, but absolutely loved to dance. He also enjoyed the time he spent woodworking in his shop, aka “The Sawdust Factory.” Everett was a devoted family man who called his wife and daughter several times a day right up until the end. He is survived by his wife of almost 63 years, Delores; daughter, Tami (Dennis) Jones, Baltimore, MD; and his beloved dog, Bailey. He was preceded in death by his parents.

Memories Timeline


  1. Delores and Tami, my deepest sympathy to you both as you mourn the loss of Everett. Everett hired me while I was finishing up my degree at NDSU and helped me as I found my first full time job. I enjoyed working for him during that year and a half. I am very appreciative of the opportunity to know and learn from him during that time. My prayers are with you both.

  2. My condolences to you and your family on the loss of your dear loved one. Losing a loved one is a distressing and painful time. We have assurance from God’s word at Psalm 34:18 that he is near to those brokenhearted and he saves those crushed in spirit. It is my hope that your family will find strength to endure during the days ahead.
