Connie R. Versdahl, age 63, of Moorhead, MN, died Thursday, January 8, 2009, in her home under the care of Hospice of the Red River Valley.
Connie Rae Kronbeck was born on March 24, 1945 to Alfred and Hyacinth (Blakeway) Kronbeck in Moorhead, MN. She grew up and attended school in Moorhead, graduating from Moorhead High School in 1963. In 1964 she married Hans Versdahl in Moorhead. Together they had one son, Barry. Connie worked at St. Luke’s Hospital as a nurses aid for several years.
In Connie’s younger years, she was a dare devil who was willing to do anything. Connie enjoyed animals, spending time at the lakes, helping her dad overhaul cars and playing cards. Connie had battled Multiple Sclerosis for the last 38 years. Through her struggles, she always had a great sense of joy and was more concerned about others than herself.
She is survived by her parents, Alfred and Hyacinth Kronbeck of Moorhead, MN; a son, Barry Versdahl of Redding, CA; one sister, Joyce (Paul) Motchenbacher of Perham, MN; several aunts and uncles; several nieces and nephews; and very special friends, Diane and Gary Wagner of Buffalo, MN.
