Lorie Elizabeth Linstaedt
On Sunday, November 1st, Lorie Linstaedt passed away peacefully surrounded by family at Sanford Health in Fargo, North Dakota. A flood of support was received by family from those who loved and cared about her.
Lorie was born on January 28th, 1960 to Jack and Catherine Roper in Fargo, ND. She graduated from Fargo South High School in 1978 and then attended North Dakota State University. In 1990, Lorie married the love of her life Michael J. Linstaedt and would birth one child, a son, Gunnar J. Linstaedt. Lorie and Michael would spend their entire lives together in Fargo. Lorie was known as a caregiver, and loved her son, husband, and family more than anything in the world.
She would find her time in healthcare as she would spend nearly 40 years at Meritcare Southpointe, The Roger Maris Cancer Center, and The Fargo VA. Lorie developed countless relationships and was known by her colleagues as the “sweetest woman with the kindest heart.”
Lorie absolutely loved lawn care and gardening. Every summer, she would groom her massive garden with the most vibrant, colorful flowers. She also loved watching her son play and coach baseball at all levels, but specifically for Fargo Post 2. She loved Jack Williams Stadium, but mostly because she loved her son and watching him do what he loves.
She will forever be in the hearts of family and friends. Lorie is survived by her husband of 30 years, Michael; son, Gunnar, sister, Jackie (Richard) Lampe of North Branch, MN, brother, Jeff (Mary) Roper of Kalispell, MT, brother, Guy Roper of Fargo, ND, brother, Jerome (Karen) Roper of Minneapolis, MN, and Keith (Tesa) Roper of West Fargo, ND, father and mother in law Dennis & Vonnie Linstaedt, brother in law Steven (Cindy) Linstaedt, brother in law James (Julie) Linstaedt, brother in law Mark Volesky, and numerous nieces and nephews whom she thought of as her own and loved dearly. She was preceded in death by her parents Jack and Catherine Roper, sister, Victoria Volesky, and brother in law Douglas Linstaedt.
In lieu of flowers, Lorie would want all donations to be made to Fargo Post 2 Baseball of Fargo, ND.
