Horpedahl

Lorna Jean (Jordahl) Horpedahl died peacefully at home in Fargo on Monday, January 6, 2014, surrounded by her family. She was born August 8, 1954, in Aurora, CO, to Jerome and Nona Jordahl during a trip across the country. She grew up and attended school in Velva, ND, before moving to Lake Park, MN, where she graduated from high school. Lorna then continued her education at Hutchinson Vocational Tech, where she received her Associate Degree. On March 10, 1990, she married Ron Horpedahl in Lake Park, and together they made their home in Fargo. Lorna had a special love for care giving which encompassed both her personal and professional life. She cared for many children throughout her 20 years of running a daycare and even took a year to take care of the elderly at a local assisted living facility. She had been an active member of Pontoppidan Lutheran Church in Fargo and enjoyed spending time with her family, her “lake family,” knitting, doing crossword puzzles and scrapbooking.
