Lynne Marie Besser died Tuesday, March 27, 2012, at her home, Signe and Olivia’s Assisted Living, at the age of 59. She was born on September 24, 1952, to Lorraine (Norrgard) and Morris Besser in Princeton, Minnesota, and lived in the Ogilvie area her entire life. In October of 2009 she moved to Signe and Olivia’s, where she resided until her death.
Lynne started her school years at Ogilvie Elementary School, and from there began attending Brighter Day Activity Center in Mora, known today as Industries Incorporated. She thoroughly enjoyed her many years there, along with the many opportunities and friendships that were so important to her. She was among the first individuals with disabilities to be served by BDAC and only recently retired from Industries Inc.
What mattered most to Lynne were her faith and her family. She was baptized on October 12, 1952, and confirmed her Christian faith on April 4, 1968, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Ogilvie, where she was a member her entire life. She cared deeply about her spiritual life and lived her faith everyday. She looked forward to weekly worship and all church activities. Also special were Sunday dinners with her family, including her nieces and nephews, whom she loved and enjoyed. Her other interests included watching sports, especially football; Country Music and music in general; and quiet time spent reading or watching television. She was fortunate to have a wonderful social life and anyone who knew Lynne loved and enjoyed her as well.
She was preceded in death by her parents and grandparents. Lynne is survived by brothers Brent and wife Pattie Besser, and Brian Besser, all of Ogilvie; sister Karen and husband Jim Danielson of Mora; nephews and nieces Brooke (Jeremy) Stulc, Benji Besser, Brandon (Mary) Besser, Blaine (Melissa) Besser, Katie (Nate) Koenings, Nathan (Jessica) Kirschner, and Jordan Kirschner.
