Debbie Severson, 68, of Fargo, passed away peacefully on May 10, 2017 at Sanford Health in Fargo. Her entire family was present. The best wife, mother, grandmother, and friend there ever was, is now with her parents and grandparents in Heaven.
Deborah Kay Osborn was born on January 21, 1949 in Edgeley, N.D. to Marilyn and Don Osborn. She was raised by her mother and step-father, Warren Vernon, whom she considered “Dad.” She graduated from West Fargo High School in 1967 and had many life-long friends among her classmates. She married her best friend, Stan Severson, on August 24, 1985 and they spent their entire marriage living in Fargo in the home she loved.
She spent most of her working life as a customer service representative, the last 24 years with Food Services of America in Fargo. Many past and present employees were her friends and continued to be after her retirement. She had a bright smile, a dynamic personality, a sense of humor, and a gift of gab which made her the ideal person for the job she had. She loved it and did not consider it work.
She was a member of Holy Spirit Church in Fargo. She believed a church was the people in the building not the building itself. She was a “Do unto others” type person and treated everyone with love and respect and easily made friends with hundreds of people. Her favorite quotes were: “I’d rather have a hundred friends than 100 pennies” and “I have more loving family and friends than any loving woman could ask for.” She loved bowling, traveling, rummage sales and meeting new people.
She is survived by her husband, Stan, her daughters; Debra Steen, Angela Suda (Blair), Roberta Monsrud (Garett), her brothers; Dennis (Lucinda), Don (Marsha) and Todd (Rose) and her grandchildren; Alec and Ethan as well as numerous nephews, nieces, cousins, and hundreds of friends. She was preceded in death by her grandparents, her parents and her brother, Duane Osborn.
Prayer Service: 7:00 P.M. Friday, May 19, 2017 at Boulger Funeral Home, Fargo with visitation starting at 5:00 P.M.
Memorial Service: 2:00 P.M. Saturday, May 20, 2017 at Boulger Funeral Home, Fargo with visitation starting at 1:00 P.M.
Burial: Sunset Memorial Gardens, Fargo at a later date.
Instead of flowers, Debbie wanted memorials sent to the animal shelter or animal rescue organization of your choosing. She had a way with animals and she loved them all.
Many thanks to Dr. Panwalker, and Sanford Health for Debbie’s care, especially CNA, Bri, on the 7th floor. “Babyface” is gone but will never be forgotten. She is now with her Lord.
