Clarice Evelyn Haugrud

October 10, 1924 — December 5, 2020

Clarice Haugrud, age 96, a longtime resident of Pelican Rapids, MN passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 5, 2020, at Riverfront on Main. Clarice Evelyn (Aaberg) Haugrud was born on October 10, 1924, near Rothsay, MN to Charles and Clara (Juven) Aaberg. She was baptized and confirmed at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Rothsay and graduated from Rothsay High School. Following graduation, she worked at Wright Memorial Hospital in Fergus Falls, MN for several years. On September 14, 1946, Clarice was united in marriage to Marvin Haugrud at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Rothsay. They spent their lives together living on and working a farm in rural Pelican Rapids, MN. Marvin and Clarice were the proud parents of five children: Marlin, Gary, Eileen, Steven, and LeAnn. Faith was important to Clarice. She was a dedicated member of Grove Lake Lutheran Church, where she was active in congregational and community programs, including WELCA, Bible study, and circle. She taught Sunday School classes for almost 20 years. She was also a 4-H leader. Clarice was an avid gardener, growing and canning produce into her 80s. She also enjoyed and was renowned for her cooking and baking. For sixteen years Clarice and Marvin spent part of their winters in Orlando, FL, with their son Steven. Clarice lived on the family farm until she was 86, when she moved into Pelican Rapids. She was always dedicated to and proud of her family, and her greatest joy was spending time with her loved-ones. Clarice is survived by sons Marlin (Ellen) Haugrud of Sioux Falls, SD, Gary (Janel) Haugrud of Pelican Rapids, MN and Steven Haugrud of Orlando, FL; daughters Eileen (Geoff) Perry of Gig Harbor, WA and LeAnn (Brad) Atchison of Willmar, MN; eleven grandchildren, Tim Haugrud, Karen (Doug) Wiechmann, Laura (Chris) Lindquist, Dan (Allie) Haugrud, Jessica (Greg) Sjostrom, Lance (Penny) Haugrud, Brooke (Mac) Johnson, Michael Perry, Mark (Laura) Perry, Ben Atchison and Lindsey Atchison; and nineteen great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Obert Aaberg of Rothsay and her sister Gladys Boyum of Battle Lake, MN.
