Stacie Gail Rinde passed away on October 27, 2023, at the age of 38 after a long, hard fought battle against cancer.
Stacie was born on July 22, 1985, in Park River, ND to Joan Stevens and Charles Bachmeier. She was raised and educated in Grand Forks until the flood of 1997 when her family moved to Park River, ND. In 2004, she moved to Fargo after her mom became ill and required nursing home care. Stacie worked as a server, sous-chef, and chef while attending college. She graduated from Rasmussen College with her associate degree in accounting in 2011 and worked at FM mortgage for several years until she took a job as a mail carrier with the United States Postal Service. She was active in the union, even holding the position of treasurer of the postal union. Stacie will always be remembered for her dedication and passion for her work.
Stacie became a mother in 2008 to her daughter Kara. Stacie was united in marriage to Travis Rinde on September 4, 2015. They made their home in Casselton, ND. Their family of three grew to five when they welcomed Caleb in 2016 and Collin in 2018. Stacie was a devoted mother, and her children were her entire world. She always put her kids first and worked hard every day to make sure they had everything they needed. She fought especially hard against her cancer to have time with her kids on earth and watch them grow.
Stacie was an avid crocheter. She crocheted prayer shawls for her church and various items for her family and friends. She was an amazing cook and loved cooking and baking for her family. She also enjoyed puzzles, reading, and spending time at the lake in the summer. She was an animal lover and always enjoyed having pets.
Though she was dealt a tough road with cancer, she made the best of every single trial or tribulation, she always kept her head up and her faith remained strong and kept her going. She lived her faith daily, really teaching her family how to treasure the simple things with her zest for life. Stacie spent the last couple of years working on her bucket list, making the most of every moment, taking amazing trips with family to Las Vegas and Florida. Stacie will be most remembered for her warm heart, fun positive energy, her contagious smile, and laughter. She showed us that life isn’t always easy, but it always goes on, be strong (#staciestrong).
