Emilie Mae Schossow

January 1, 1938 — January 11, 2024

Emilie Mae Schossow, passed away peacefully at her daughter's residence in San Tan Valley, Arizona on January 11, 2024. She was born on January 1, 1938, in Fargo, North Dakota, the daughter of Eugene and Mary Loberg. Emilie later graduated from West Fargo High School as well as Interstate Business College.

She married her soulmate on August 23, 1963. Emilie dedicated her career to serving others, having worked at the Veterans Administration for a few years before joining Branick Industries of Fargo, ND, where she diligently handled payroll and accounting for an impressive 43 years. Her commitment to her work and colleagues left a lasting impact on all who had the pleasure of knowing her. In 1998 they fulfilled their dream of building a beautiful lake home on Prairie Lake, near Pelican Rapids, MN. After Emilie and Maynard retired, they became snowbirds spending winters in Tacna, AZ. 

Outside of her professional life, Emilie was known for her love of horses, everything from raising colts to training and riding for years when lived on the farm in Horace, North Dakota. She took care of Maynard and her little Yorkie, Java, which now lives with Susan in Arizona. 
She enjoyed reading and completing puzzle books, and most importantly, her cherished moments spent with family and friends. Her radiant personality shone brightest in her role as a grandmother; often described as a "wonderful grandmother" by those who knew and loved her.

Emilie will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. She is survived by her loving daughters: LeAnn (Perry) Dreyer and Susan Nokleby, as well as her 7 grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren; and sister Claudia Miller.  She is now reunited in heaven with her parents and husband Maynard.

A 10:00 a.m. graveside service to honor Emilie's life will be held on April 29, 2024, at the Fargo National Cemetery in Harwood, North Dakota.
