Dagmar A. Everson, 99, Minot, passed away Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012, at the Souris Valley Care Center in Velva.
Dagmar was born to Carl and Otilie (Berntsen) Berg, on Sept. 24, 1913, in Kongsvinger, Norway. Dagmar came from Norway with her family at age three. She lived and attended school at Bergen and Ryder. She was confirmed in the Lutheran faith at Ryder. She worked as a young adult at the Ryder Hotel, learning many cooking and baking skills. She became an expert in pie-making.
Dagmar married Earl Everson June 7, 1936, at Oak Valley Lutheran Church, Velva. They were engaged in farming in the Granville area. She took an active part in farming, working side by side with Earl. Earl passed away on Feb. 6, 1997.
She was a member of Stenkjaer Lutheran Church, Simcoe, and participated in ladies aid and choir. Obtaining her U.S. Citizenship made her very proud. She valued her Scandinavian hertitage. Earl and Dagmar enjoyed a trip to Norway to meet and visit many relatives. In following years, she entertained many visitors from Norway.
