Arlene Mann

May 23, 1948 - November 27, 2014


Arlene M. Mann, age 66, passed away on Thursday, November 27, 2014 peacefully at Sanford Health Center with family and friends at her side.

Arlene was born on May 23, 1948 the daughter of Gerald and Pauline (Bernardy) Ballweg. She grew up in the Loma – Langdon area and graduated from St. Alphonsus High School in 1966. She started her career as an x-ray tech and over the years she worked in the clerical field and currently was employed by Integrity Windows.

On October 12, 1968 she married Keith Mann in Langdon, ND. They started their journey in Minneapolis, MN and moved to Fargo in 1973, where they raised their family. When they became empty nesters, they were on the move with Keith’s employment to various cities in Minnesota, where Arlene always kept busy. They spent their past few years enjoying their retirement project…. building their lake home and spending time in Mesa, Arizona.

Arlene was a member of the Roamers 4-Wheel Drive Club. In her free time you could find her camping, shopping, decorating and having fun with her grandchildren. They were the apple of her eye!

Arlene is survived by her husband, Keith; son, Jade Mann of Fargo; daughter, Kara (Mike) Hendrickson of Mapleton, ND; and grandchildren, Evan and Emily Hendrickson. She is also survived by sisters, Sharon (Joe) Davidson of Bozeman, MT; Judy (Rick) Davidson of Thornton, CO; Linda (Ron) Tholkes of West Fargo, ND and Carrie (Mike) Eggleston of Erie, CO; brothers-in-law, Don (Laurie) Mann of Shoreview, MN; Jerry Mann of Grass Valley, CA; Larry (Beth) Mann of Lake Elmo, MN; and sister-in-law, Margaret (Dale) Johnson of Grass Valley, CA; and many nieces and nephews.

    Keith and Family,
    So sorry to hear about Arlene. What a shock!! You have my deepest sympathy. Arlene’s parents lived in the house in Langdon next to my parents Arvid and Nina Berggren. Keith, you and I went to Nekoma School together and I knew all of the Manns well. Hopefully a lot of your family will be able to come and be with you at this sad time. I will keep you in my prayers.

    I only knew Arlene for a short two years. In this time we became friends, we would talk about grandkids, and family, at times she did all the talking. LOL. She was one of the busiest ladies I knew. If she wasn’t taking her grandkids to the park, she would be doing yard work. Just a few days before her unfortunate accident, she told me that she could shop every day, didn’t bother her at all. She was on the hunt for a new purse and she was taking Keith with just in case she found one. That way he could go back the next day to pick it up, because it was on sale at two and she would still be working, so he would know exactly which one to get, LOL. I will miss Arlene, we worked together, she made working enjoyable. Arlene was a strong, and very kind lady. My thoughts and prayers for all the family and everyone that Arlene touched in her life.
    Rest in Peace sweet Lady I will miss you greatly Val Steinhaus
