OVIDIA MATHILDA FLOREN NESET

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM.

Born: January 12, 1907. 108 years ago. In Baltic, South Dakota. Died: July 27, 2000. Almost 15 years ago. In Northome, Minnesota.

I think about her and miss her every single day. She is frequently in my dreams. Often I’m searching for her and I find her. I fall asleep every night  facing a wall where mom and dad and their moms and dads share space and images and stories. It’s nice. Reminds me I am just part of the flow.

Ovidia Mathilda Floren Neset was a wife and mother; a believer in a kind god who intended people to love and care for each other; a naturalist;  farmer; animal lover; baker; florist; bird-lover; a loyal caring friend and a very special mom. Wish I could call her and wish her happy birthday.

Mom loved birds and sheep especially. So we have this bird to sing for her. I intended to publish a whole series of mom’s life with her sheep from the time until she was a little girl until shortly before she died. I couldn’t get the files to open so that album will be along in a few days.

For now…I love you mom.

I WILL BE UP FOR MEMORIAL DAY. NICE TO SIT AND VISIT A LITTLE WHILE.

  1. Marjorie, your tribute to your mother was moving and brought me nearly to tears. How we miss them. I hope I can print this off, otherwise I would like a copy, and with the pictures.
