Sedonia Gabrielle Lahren, age 36, passed away on Saturday, September 25, 2021 surrounded by family.
Sedonia was born on Christmas Day, 1984 in Bemidji, MN. She was the fifth of six children born to Connie and Tim Lahren. The family moved to Fargo, ND when Sedonia was young, where she attended Fargo Catholic Schools and then graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in 2003. After graduation she began her career at Elim Nursing Home. She started as a CNA, and worked her way through nursing school and she received her LPN in 2013. On October 23, 2008, Sedonia became a mom to Alivia Lou Heller, who was the light of her life.
Sedonia was known for her caring heart, kind spirit, and bright smile. She would go out of her way to help anyone in need, and there was nothing she wouldn’t do for those she loved. Sedonia loved being a nurse, and her residents were more than a job to her; they became her second family. She loved to spend time with them while she was working, and on her days off she could often be found taking one or more of her residents to the park, to the movies, or out to lunch. She also loved spending time with Alivia, her family and many friends, who will miss her forever.
Sedonia is survived by her daughter, Alivia Heller, her brothers Rich (Kristie) Lahren, Chris (Sandy) Lahren, and Josh (Libbi) Adair, and her sisters Bobbie (Jeff) Grob, and Savannah (Chad) Lewis, and many nieces and nephews, whom she loved very much. She was preceded in death by her grandparents John and Betty Locke and Will and Marjorie Lahren, and her parents Tim and Connie Lahren.
Sedonia found shelter and a community of people at the Gladys Ray Shelter in downtown Fargo. Even when she was doing well, she still spent time at the shelter where she was always a big help to the staff. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Gladys Ray Shelter.
Funeral services will be held at Boulger Funeral Home in Fargo on Thursday, October 7, 2021. Visitation will be at 1:00, followed by the funeral service at 2:00. Burial will be at Holy Cross Cemetery in Fargo, ND.
Sedonia, we miss you dearly, and you will always be loved and remembered for the beautiful girl you were, even when you couldn’t see it yourself.
