Lillian Gauderman, Fargo, ND, died February 17, 2020.
Lillian was born on December 14, 1919 in Luverne, ND, the daughter of Thomas & Theodora(Egge) Vigesaa. Lillian married Ed Gauderman on January 8, 1944, in Jamestown, ND. They farmed in the Kensal area until their retirement in 1977. They resided in Jamestown, ND and Oshkosh, WI for some of their retirement years. She has resided in Fargo since 1998.
Lillian learned early of the importance of God in her life; she committed her life to God in 1934 and remained true to that promise.
Lillian and Ed enjoyed the privilege of having fellowship meetings in their home for over 50 years. A highlight of their retirement years was having the opportunity of taking our ministers to special meetings and conventions in both US and Canada. Their home was always open and welcoming to family, friends and our ministers. Each visit was very special to them.
Lillian and Ed were advocates for the less privileged. They looked for opportunities to help anyone in need and considered it a privilege. Lillian spoke often in her later days of all the people in their lifetime that they had the opportunity of showing love and kindness. It was very dear to her heart.
Lillian is survived by four children: James(Audrey) Grafton, ND, Jerry(Vonnie) Shell Lake, WI, Marianne(Hartley) Daku, White City, SK, and Diana(James) Lemmer, Oshkosh, WI; 10 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death her husband; parents; five brothers and four sisters.
Our family would like to express our appreciation to all who showed so much love and care to mom. Thanks to Red River Valley Hospice for their exceptional care and compassion in her last days.
