Clifford Stenslie

June 26, 1927 - February 01, 2018


Clifford Oberlin Stenslie, better known as “Cliff” was born on June 26, 1927, the son of Oscar and Pauline Stenslie in Pekin, ND. Cliff was proud of his service for the military during WWII. As part of his time in the Navy, he served on the USS Eichenberger. Cliff retired from Robert Gibb and Sons after working there for many, many years.

Cliff was united in marriage to Mildred Bender on May 22, 1949 and in 1961, they welcomed their son, Ronald. They were lifetime members of Peace Lutheran Church. Cliff loved family, playing cards with friends, golfing, bowling, fishing, and participating with Volksport. Millie passed to heaven in 2016 – I’m sure they are happy to be back together now.

Cliff is survived by his son, Ronald (Julie) Stenslie; his sister-in-law, Elsie (Lorenz) Sackmann; his nieces – Peg (Wayne) Struble and Mary Pat (Randy) Kallod and their children – Ashley, James (Tiffany) and Annaliese (Carson Rickbeil); Pam (Peter) Neumann and Linda Vail; and his nephew, Larry Stenslie.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to Peace Lutheran Church in Fargo.

    Ron, Sorry about the passing of your father. Sounds like a wonderful guy and great Dad. Hope all is well with you. Take care.

    “Uncle” Cliff was a kind and generous man, full of wit and humor who always had a funny story or joke to share. He and aunt Millie have been a huge part our family’s lives and their passing leaves such a void in hearts. Many prayers and hugs, Ron and Julie.

  3. Elliot and Pauline Johnson says:

    Our sincere sympathy Ron, Cliff was a good friend and a great guy to work with. I grew up around Pekin also and he knew my folks and all the people around the area, it was good talking with him about the earlier times back then. I enjoyed golfing with him; your mom and dad will be truly missed.

    Cliff and I worked together at Gibb & Sons for many years. He was such a nice, gentle, and kind man. I don’t think I ever heard him say a cross word in all the years I knew him. He and Millie were both wonderful people and are now together once again. My deepest sympathy to their son, Ron, and the rest of the family.

    Ron, my heart goes out to you and your extended family. Your mom and dad were always some of my favorites in our church family – they always had a ready smile and a kind and gentle nature. How very difficult it is to have our parents leave us, and you have suffered the 2 losses so close together. Peace and comfort to you as you mourn the loss of your father.
