Lucy Linda Miller, 84, Fargo, ND passed away on Thursday, July 30, 2020 at Rosewood on Broadway in Fargo. She was born on July 5, 1936 to Wendell and Cora (Dobbins) Coffing on the farm north of Mott, ND. She grew up near Mott where she attended country school.

On August 25, 1952 she was united in marriage to Patrick H. Miller in Mott, ND. The couple lived on the farm briefly before moving to California and then, Arizona. They returned to North Dakota in 1959 where they took over the family farm. They made their home and raised their three children south of Mott, ND. Lucy was an excellent homemaker and farm wife, taking care of the kids and many household chores.

After Patrick passed away in 1996, Lucy moved to Hettinger, ND.

In September of 2000 she was united in marriage to Delbert Wiesinger and continued to live in Hettinger.

After he passed away in 2010, Lucy moved to Riverview Place in Fargo. She enjoyed her time at Riverview for the next eight years.

Lucy was an extremely talented artist who made beautiful oil paintings, winning many awards. She also crocheted, sewed and quilted. Lucy made polka outfits for her and Patrick, as they loved to go to dances and polka festivals in the area. Gardening was another one of her favorite hobbies.

    Sending prayers to family and friends. Lucy Marlene and I all were born in July of 36 and have been friends ever since. We were all lucky to be together to celebrate our 80th birthdays. She was a wonderful lady. God bless.

    My heartfelt condolences go out to the family. Lucy and Pat were fun to watch on the dance floor!

    I haven’t been good at keeping in touch with family, but I just now found out that we lost my aunt Lucy. I remember her voice and laugh well. She was my dad, Joseph’s youngest brother, Patrick’s wife. May her memory be a blessing. And may the LORD comfort her family and friends.

  9. Delretta Halvorson says:

    So very sorry for your loss. I’m praying for comfort for all family members. While they were both still well, my Dad (Delbert Wiesinger) & Lucy had some wonderful times, travel & fun in their golden years! Precious memories!

    Cousin Greg Harbac shares deepest sorrow for your family. Mom (91 years old), Patrick Miller’s first cousin, still talks today about that there was hardly a square dance that Lucy and Patrick would pass up. AND Mom still finds time to chuckle about an event not completely unheard of at the time when after her father died and Patrick’s mother passed away Patrick’s father married her mother… making Patrick (Lucy’s husband) both her cousin and her brother. Sent with Love to my cousins.
