Obituary for Gloria Sylvia Bakke

Gloria S. Bakke of Fargo, ND, passed away on Saturday, November 23, 2013, at Sanford Hospital in Fargo.

Gloria Sylvia (Mohn) Bakke was born January 7, 1924, in Fairbault, MN, to Ernest and Malfred Mohn. After moving many times with her family, she graduated from high school in Lake Park, MN, in 1943.

She married Milfred T. Bakke in Fargo October 22, 1946. They resided in Fargo until his death in June of 2000. She then moved to south Fargo.

Gloria worked for Internal Revenue for 30 years and won the Business and Professional Women (BPW) woman of the year award in the 70’s. She thoroughly enjoyed working on her knitting machine and all the friends she gained through the years. Many may remember her from weekends at the Battle Lake Flea Market where she set up her tables to sell her dishcloths and baby afghans. Her treasured companion was Fluffy, her cat. She always looked forward to Bible studies at Immanuel Lutheran Church of Fargo, and family fishing trips were always a highlight for her. 

She is survived by her daughter, Carol (Larry) Mikkelson of Fergus Falls, MN; her sons, Richard (Karen Ann), Raymond (Karen Marie) both of Fargo; eight grandchildren; six great-grandchildren and her special friend, Warren Melby of Moorhead, MN.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Milfred, her brothers, Erwin, Helmer, Reuben, and Carlyn and her sister, Charlotte Dokken.
