Evelyn Moe

July 31, 1922-April 29, 2011

Former Lake Park resident Evelyn I. Moe, 88, of Detroit Lakes, died Friday, April 29, 2011 at Emmanuel Nursing Home in Detroit Lakes.

Evelyn was born the daughter of Arnold and Anna (Bullert) Kaiser on July 31, 1922 in Fargo. In 1923, she moved with her family to Ogema, where she was raised and educated.

Evelyn married Carsten Moe on January 26, 1943 in Audubon. They farmed north of Lake Park, where they resided for 36 years. She was an active member of Atlanta Lutheran Church with Sunday school, ladies aide, circle, and was also active with 4-H. Evelyn enjoyed sewing, needle point, quilting, gardening of both vegetables and flowers.

Together, Evelyn and Carsten won farmer and homemaker awards, conservation and tree planting awards, working side by side. No job or chore was too small or to hard for Evelyn.

After Carsten's death on September 2, 1998, Evelyn moved into assisted living in Detroit Lakes. There was no greater joy to Evelyn than when her family came to visit, one or all, even just for a meal. She was extremely proud of her grandchildren and in 2011, to become a great grandmother. To her, family was all there is and was. She loved one and all equally. We will miss her and her love for us.

Surviving Evelyn are her children, Carol Moe of Burnsville, Minn., Curtis (Rose) Moe of Princeton, Minn., Jacquelyn (Jim) Lien of Nevis and Nancy (Doug) Fern of Detroit Lakes; eight grandchildren, Bryan (Molly) Fern, Michelle Orcutt, Jennifer (Reed) Engel, Chris (Alejandra) Orcutt, Matthew Lien, Charles Moe, Kirsten Moe and Jacques Lien; great grandson, Carter Engel; three brothers, Arvid (Edith) Kaiser of Detroit Lakes, Donald Kaiser and Eugene Kaiser, both of Ogema; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Preceding Evelyn in death were her parents; husband, Carsten; sister, Deloris Zurn; and brother, Ivan Kaiser.

Funeral services are set for at 11 a.m. Tuesday, May 3 in Trinity Lutheran Church, Detroit Lakes, with visitation for one hour prior to services. Interment will be in Lake Park Lutheran Cemetery, Lake Park.
