Wendy Kay Oberg of Shelly, MN passed away on December 25, 2018. She was born in Frankfurt, Germany on February 18, 1959 to Earl and Edrie Oberg. As part of a military family, she lived in a variety of places during the early part of her life. At nine, she and her family moved to East Grand Forks from San Angelo, TX.
Wendy graduated from East Grand Forks Senior High in 1978. Afterward, she earned a four-year degree with honors at Mayville State University. She was very proud of her business and accounting degree.
Wendy was always a kind soul and loved arts and crafts. She also loved her pets—mostly dogs, adopting many during her lifetime.
Wendy battled various medical conditions for nearly her entire life. Despite these challenges, she always tried to put her best foot forward and never gave up. Her ability to maintain a positive attitude would have not been possible without the medical professionals who helped her along the way. The Oberg family would also like to thank Linda Hoover for being a tireless advocate for Wendy.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Edrie Oberg. She is survived by her significant other, Craig Swenson, her son, Wayne Oberg (Megan), her half-sister, Nancy Wendt, and her brother, Wayne Oberg.
A memorial service for Wendy will be held on Saturday, January 12, at 2:00 p.m. at Boulger Funeral Home (123 10th St S, Fargo, ND 58103).
