Monica June Langer was born June 4th, 1952 at St. John’s in Fargo, North Dakota. She was likely delivered by her future mother-in-law who was the head nurse of the delivery room. She was raised in Alice, North Dakota and spoke lovingly of her hometown throughout her life. She moved to Fargo at age four. She graduated from Shanley in 1970 and then entered nursing school.
She met Michael Schloesser in 1970 and married him July 27, 1973 at Holy Spirit. They spent the remainder of their youth as self-described hippies which ended with the birth of their first child.
She worked for twenty years as a nurse at Dakota Hospital on 4-North.
She got a degree in social work in 1988 and did her homework on the same table as her children. She enjoyed working with the geriatric population and started Silver Follies as a project for her degree.
Monica enjoyed rock and roll music and travelling with her husband and kids. She went to London, Rome, Istanbul, Greece, Prague, and Puerto Rico, and countless family vacations.
Monica died peacefully in her home surrounded by family. She is survived by her husband Michael Schloesser, three children Erin Schloesser, Erika Lovaas, Neil Schloesser, two grandkids Madison and Hunter Lovaas, and brother Gary Langer.
She is preceded in death by her parents Ernest and Beatrice Langer, brother Ron, and half- sister Pauline into heaven. Her final adventure began February 17.
Happy trails Mom.
