Nancy Brekke, 84, a lifelong resident of North Dakota, died peacefully on February 2, 2024, at Sheyenne Crossings in West Fargo.
A caring wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and friend, Nancy was preceded in death by her husband C. Dean Brekke and her eleven brothers and sisters. A homemaker until her children entered school, Nancy proudly served in West Fargo school cafeterias for over 20 years and was loved by students and staff alike.
Born Nancy Marie Stram on February 10, 1939, in Lisbon, ND, to Emil and Hazel Stram, she and C. Dean married on August 24, 1957, in Milnor, ND. She is survived by her daughter Melissa Bergeron Thomas of Surprise, AZ, son Gregg Brekke of Sykesville, MD, seven grandchildren and one great grandson. Her nephew Brian Ordahl of Kindred, his wife JoAnn, and their two daughters and grandchildren were especially close to Nancy.
A committal service celebrating Nancy’s life will be held at the Perhus Cemetery near Kindred where she will be interred next to C. Dean later this year. The date and time to be announced closer to the service.
