Carol Abrahamson

September 02, 1936 - December 08, 2017


Carol Marie Abrahamson, 81, of Fargo, ND passed away on Friday, December 8, 2017 at Sanford Hospital as a result of suffering a four month electrolyte disorder.

Carol was born September 2, 1936 at Binford, ND, the daughter of Chris and Pearl Overby. She graduated from Binford High School in 1954. In September of that year she married Henry (Hank) Abrahamson.

Hank and Carol owned and operated a meat business for over 30 years in Binford, Mayville, Aneta and Grand Forks. After retiring from the meat business in 1986, they entered into a partnership at Finley Motors in Finley, ND for 10 years.

Carol and Hank moved to Fargo in 1989 where Carol was employed for nearly 20 years at the dental office of Dr. Charles Klemz and Dr. Michael Joyce. In addition to her clerical work, a great joy to her was providing home baked goodies on a weekly basis for her beloved co-workers. Carol ‘re-retired’ and elected to do house cleaning for a few families in her spare time. She loved to be busy.

She is survived by a son Gerry (Donna) Abrahamson of Bismarck, ND, and a daughter Barbara (Darrell) Hennemann of Fargo, ND, three granddaughters; Katie (Chad) Hahn of Fargo, Stephanie (Ryan) Christopherson of Williston, ND, Dawn Williams of Hoople, ND ,and by seven great grandchildren; Sienna, Brittyn and Garrison Hahn and Leigh, Zoe and Justin Christopherson, and Emily Steinman. She is also survived by two brothers; Gordon of Binford, ND, Elton (Sylvia) Overby of Plentywood, MT, and one sister; Clarice (Richard) Kadry of West Fargo, ND.

She was preceded in death by her husband Henry in 2002, her parents, an older brother Kenneth and three sisters-in-law; Alma Overby, Myrtle Overby and Audrey Overby.

Carol will be remembered as a Godly woman with exemplary morals. All who knew Carol would agree that she was a model of selflessness, love, peace, kindness, goodness, generosity, faithfulness, and gentleness.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 AM Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at Bethel Evangelical Free Church in Fargo with a visitation from 10:00-11:00 AM at the church. A visitation will begin at 6:00 PM with a prayer service at 7:00 PM at Boulger Funeral Home in Fargo, ND.

    I want to wrap my arms around you, Barb and Gerry. I can’t start to tell you how very sorry I am. I feel the loss of your mom deeply as you all have been and continue to be such an important part of the Lian family. Her presence and kindness and support will be tremendously missed in the Aneta Community. She will be alive in my heart forever. May you find peace in knowing that for her there is no more suffering. Much love, Jacki.

    We are so shocked and saddened by the loss of a very good friend. We had the privilege of being their pastor for 4 years in Aneta, and Hank and Carol were two of the most faithful and enriching people we have ever known. Our memories are vivid of them and the influence they had on our lives and many others also. We know they will inspire many of the family and friends to follow their example.

    To Carol’s family our most sincere sympathy. We will miss Carol at Bethel as well as in AZ, where we would see her at church.We always enjoyed our visits and often sitting together. She was a very dear christian lady and a perfect example of Jesus’ love.
