Mary Burgard Obituary

   Mary Burgard, 88, died Friday January 5, 2024 at Kinder Care in West Fargo, ND.

   Mary (Fettig) Burgard was born November 20, 1935 in Selz, ND.  On November 25, 1952, Mary wed John Burgard, and together, they welcomed nine children into their lives. They moved to Fargo where Mary worked in the cafeteria at St. John’s Hospital. From there, they moved to Hunter where they worked for George Burchill. Later they moved back to Selz to work on the Fettig family farm (Mary’s folks). In 1960, Mary and John moved to Page. They bought the farm with the help of George Burchill and he helped them start their dairy farm.

   Mary was very active in the community at St. James Catholic Church with the Christian Mothers and taught religious education for many years. She served on the Page School board and was President of the Page Senior Center at one time. Dairy women meetings kept her very busy as well. Mary was Dairy Woman of the Year in 1986. Working on the dairy farm was more than a full-time job, but she found time to cook, bake, sew, crochet, garden, canning and kept the house clean.

   Mary is survived by her 9 children, Linda Thomas, Jim Burgard, Patty (Scott) Hoff, Karen (Roland) Priewe, Duane (Jo) Burgard, Brenda (Dexter) Demaray, Donna (Randy) Moen, Cindy Workman & Mary Jean (Mike) Cuffe. Mary was a grandma, great-grandma and great-great-grandma to many children. She is also survived by four siblings.

   Mary was preceded in death by her husband John; her parents, John’s parents, grandchildren, great grandchildren, 7 brothers and 2 sisters.
