Liz Christianson, 55,

Minot, died Sunday, July

Liz was born on January

17, 1965 in Fargo ND,

daughter of Howard and

Barb Fjeld (Schieve).

She was raised and edu-

cated in Burlington gra-

duating from Des Lacs

Burlington in 1983. Fol-

lowing graduation she

married, shortly after she

was blessed with the birth

of her son. They moved to

Oregon with then hus-

band and she was blessed

with her daughter. They

lived there for a brief time

before she and her two

children moved back to

Minot. She was employed

at her mother’s restaurant

located in the bowling al-

ley where she met the

love of her life Wade

Christianson. They were

married on December 23,

1994 and made their

home in NW Minot and

grew their family with

two more kids. Liz

worked for Food Manage-

ment Investors (FMI). In

January, she had just re-

ceived her 25 years of ser-

vice. FMI was more than a

job to Liz, they were part

of the family.

Liz was a strong, hard-

working and fiercely dedi-

cated woman in all as-

pects of her life. Some of

her accomplishments

started at the young age of

12 where she won

numerous awards and

medals for her rifle shoot-

ing abilities including ND

State Champion Sub-

Junior Small Bore at age

14. She was involved with

many sports in high

school including drill

team, basketball and track

where she excelled. Liz

was a member of a bowl-

ing league with her moth-

er and grandmother in

which they attended

weekly league nights and

won many tournaments.

There was no denying

her love and passion for

horses. On any given day,

after work, you would

find her out in the pasture

or down in the barn. The

barn was her heaven here

on earth. She was a

member of Minot Trail

Riders for 20 plus years

where she served as a

board member and

President for the last 6

years. She attended many

horse shows and events

with her horse family. Her

love for horses will live

on through her daughters,

grandkids and the village.
