    I was very privileged to have gotten to know Nancy 4 years ago when my parents moved in next door to her at trollwood Village in North Fargo. They got to be great friends and Nancy would be able to pop in just like she did in the old days in Edinburg for coffee and cookies. She was a great neighbor and would always stop by and see that they made it to lunch down in the dining room as my parents had memory problems. They needed a little reminder. However their memory problems never bothered her because they enjoyed life in the moment and enjoyed other’s company very much. She taught me how to say “sleep well” in Norwegian and also reminded my parents of their Norwegian heritage when she would tell them “sov godt” every night before she went back to her apartment. It has become a treasured saying that I also say to my mom when I tell her goodnight. I got to take her along on some adventures with my folks and another friend Yvonne as we would go out to eat, to lutefisk dinners, the Maplewood State Park, to the lake, spa day at k nails and even drove up to County 20 see the Texas Longhorns. She was a wonderful Christian lady who had a lot of joy in her heart and happily shared it with others. I will miss you Nancy.
    Sov Godt

    My deepest sympathy to all who loved Nancy.

    My mother, Alice, was her cousin. They were more than cousins; they were friends. Whenever we visited North Dakota, spending time with Nancy and her family was a priority. Nancy would visit over at my aunt Eva Johnson’s or at my grandma Agnes Peterson’s. I still can hear Nancy’s voice, and see her sipping her coffee.

    Mom passed away in 1981. It pleases my heart to know that Nancy and my mother are reunited again with Jesus!

    Blessings to you.

    Nancy and Stanley,
    What a truly beautiful family you have :}

  12. Sandy Sandvik says:

    A legacy of love!
    As cousins growing up in same rural area, we would hear the old stories of our relatives and our folk’s early days. Making memories together as we would visit at each other’s farm, picnics at Homme Dam, roller skating, special occasions. Now we are hearing our brother’s retell their stories of youth! Even though siblings branched out to various states…we are blessed to have connection with family. I always enjoyed visiting with Nancy…loved her jovial laughter. Embrace her legacy of love. Prayers to all family and friends for God’s peace.
