Services for Maxine Langved

Maxine Langved passed away Wednesday, January 06, 2021, under the loving care of the staff at Fair Meadow Nursing Home, Fertile, MN. 
Maxine Christine Sorenson was born September 9, 1933 to Edgar and Lillian Sorenson in Moorhead, MN.  She has one sister, Shirley Lee of Bemidji.  As a child, they lived in many areas, finally settling back home in Gonvick.  She attended Windsor Country School and graduated from Gonvick High School in 1952.  
Maxine went to nurses training and became an LPN.  She worked at Fosston Hospital and Bethesda Hospital in Crookston before marrying Jimmy Langved on August 11, 1956.  
When the children started coming, she stayed home to raise her boys.  She gardened and helped with the cattle, canned and baked, along with the day to day responsibilities of raising boys and trying to keep them from killing each other.  (They can all tell the stories of Craig and the blue paint, or the bees, Jeff and the water trough, or about the day the same window was broken three times!)
Jimmy passed away in 2004 and soon after Maxine sold the farm to her son, Jeff and moved to Fair Meadow Assisted Living.  She moved to Fair Meadow Nursing Home in February of 2020.  
Maxine is survived by her sister, Shirley, her four sons: Mark (Kristy), Craig (Brenda), Jeff and Jon, seven grandchildren: Jessie (Kevin) Nephew, Doda (Carter) Nolte, Hannah (Jason) Chisholm, Brook (Cody) Nuernberg, Stephen Langved (Kimberly Bear), Garth Langved, and Toni (Brandon) Langved-Kelley, and eight great-grandchildren: Ivan Nephew, Hailey and Stella Nolte, Russell, Ryder and Eden Chisholm, KeneDee and Grayson Nuernberg, brother-in-law: Harold Halvorson, and several nieces, nephews and cousins. 
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law: Kathleen and Vernon Fahey, Donna and Otto Kvasager, June and Albin Larson, Alpha Halvorson, Don Lee and Louis Anderson.
