Bridget Chisaka passed away on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville, MN at the age of 35.

Bridget Nicole Blomberg was born on December 11, 1984, to Wallace and Carol (Bleken) Blomberg in Fargo, North Dakota. She grew up in Fargo and attended Fargo North High School where she was active in theater and various clubs and graduated in 2003. After High School, she attended Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU) where she majored in Elementary Education. During her time at both schools, she made many close friends, many of whom she had kept in close contact. SMSU is also where she met the love of her life, Saili. They were married in June of 2011.

She began her teaching career at Lynd Public Schools in Lynd, MN, in 2007 through 2012. She continued her teaching career at Hidden Valley Elementary in Savage, MN for the last eight years. Bridget’s greatest passion was teaching and shaping young minds. She was able to touch so many students’ lives throughout her career which was one of her biggest joys. Bridget was a favorite to many of her students. There wasn’t a student that she was not up for the challenge and she loved to make a difference in their lives.

Bridget will be remembered for her kind and generous soul. Patience was one of Bridget’s best virtues. She could always be counted on by family and friends for anything they needed. She was full of life and the most fun person to be around. Her laugh and smile were infectious. Besides teaching, Bridget loved a good girl’s weekend, shopping, relaxing at the lake, and a good date night and traveling with Saili.

Bridget is survived by her husband, Saili Chisaka of Savage, MN; her parents, Wally and Carol Blomberg of Fargo; and her brother, Brady (Amber) Blomberg of Fargo and their children Bentlee and Briella who were Bridget’s Goddaughters, her beloved dogs Piper and Hazel along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents Fern and Oscar Bleken, grandparents Floyd and Lillian Blomberg, Aunt and uncle Ted and Shellene Haugen, Aunt Carol Bartsch, Uncle Orin Bleken, and her beloved dog Dutchess.

    Wally, Carol, and Brady,

    Sending you love and prayers for comfort and this difficult time.
    My memories of Bridget are of the bubbly little girl running around the red house on the corner in Fargo.
    Little pigtails and smiles and so excited when daddy came home from work!
    I can only imagine she brought many smiles like that to the faces of the children she taught.

    I watched Bridget grow up. What a wonderful young lady. I’m so sorry. She always had a smile.

  22. Margaret, Jeremy, Jordan & Madeline Sundheim says:

    We are so deeply saddened. My sister Catherine was Bridget’s friend and coworker. We were lucky enough to get to know Bridget through the years. She was so supportive of my daughter’s theater “career”. Supporting Madeline through her many community, professional and then high school shows. She was always there with a huge smile and encouraging words. We loved having her in our lives. She truly was family and we will never forget her kind spirit and generosity.

  23. Mikayla Davis says:

    Sending my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I had only known Bridget for about a month, but in the month she made such an impact on my life. I came in as a first-year teacher in the room next to Bridget’s we had a connecting door to our rooms. She helped me set up my classroom and plan lessons. She always asked how I was doing and was there to support me even when she was busy trying to figure out this new way of teaching. She was like my mentor. If I had a question I knew to go to her. I was moved to virtual academy and even though we weren’t in the room next to each other’s anymore she was still supporting me. She was such a good person and we need more people like her in this world. I will miss her tips and the support she gave me. I will never forget the difference she made in a new teacher’s life.

    I can’t even begin to say how sorry I am for your loss of Bridget. There are no words. I knew her when she was a baby and through her childhood. What a character she was. Always such a good kiddo who grew into an amazing adult. Godspeed Bridget. A sweet, good and caring soul is gone and the world is emptier after she left…….

    So sorry to hear of your sudden loss. I went to Ben and North with Bridget and have been reflecting on fun memories with her from those times.. laughter and conversations in her red Beretta, school hallways and study halls. She certainly left all who knew her with a legacy of love. You are in my prayers.
