Christine Louise Feldhaus (Brogunier) was born on January 21st, 1942 in Hagerstown, MD to Russell and Helen Brogunier. She was one of four children. She attended high school at North Hagerstown High and graduated from there in 1960. She then enrolled at Hagerstown Junior College with plans of becoming a nurse. She remained there for two years before transferring to the University of Minnesota to complete her nursing degree. There, she met James G. Feldhaus and they were married on December 24th, 1966.
She lived in Minnesota with James (Jim) for many years and worked at Lakeview Hospital and Greeley Street Nursing home, before moving back to Hagerstown with their daughter, Theresa, in 1978. They lived there while Theresa finished high school and enrolled in college, before relocating again to Sioux Falls, SD in 1990. Christine and James lived in Sioux Falls until 1994 when they settled in Canistota, SD.
Christine worked as a nurse at the Canistota Good Samaritan nursing home and also worked part-time as a Teacher’s Assistant at the Canistota School. In both her work and in caring for her family, Christine lived the values of compassion, self-sacrifice, empathy, generosity, and service to others. She was also an active member of the United Methodist Church while living in Canistota, and enjoyed growing in her faith there, and sharing her love of singing during the worship services.
During her youth, Christine enjoyed many hobbies and shared many talents with the world including equestrian events such as competitive dressage and show-jumping through the American Horse Show Association, and showing purebred Standard Poodles and Afghan hounds through the American Kennel Club. She remained active in her community as a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Maryland Symphony Guild. She was a lover of all animals and often had a menagerie of pets, including many dogs of all shapes and sizes. She loved to cook, especially for her family, and she always made sure no one left her house hungry. She was also an avid reader, favoring mystery novels and thrillers.
Christine passed away on June 24th, 2016 at the Lake Norden Golden Living Center in Lake Norden, SD. She was blessed to be cared for her during her time there by thoughtful and supportive staff, and her family wishes to thank her entire care team for their wonderful service and kindness during her years there.

Patricia Lynn “Pat” DeVries-Weber - Print this obit
Patricia Lynn “Pat” DeVries-Weber, wife, mom, grandma, sister, friend, passed away June 20 after a repeated battle with cancer. Pat was born on St. Patrick's Day to Lila and Herman DeVries who diverted from their pre-planned name to the one more fitting for the occasion! She loved life from March 17, 1952-2016 to June 20. The dash in between was made up of action as Pat used her multiple talents to make life special for her son, Corey, husband Ralph, daughter-in- law Sarah (Wiebersick), granddaughters Avery and Ella, sisters Shirley, Bonnie, Barb, and Marilyn, brother Mike, Ralph's daughter Amanda (Chris) Raney, their son Ian, and everyone else she met.
As an avid cook and baker Pat had her personal recipe for life: Pat's Dash in 1952-2016: Ingredients: 1 part family; loads of traditions; 1 special dog, Jessie; 100,000 days of baking; a gallon of cross stitch; a team of Packers; many, many friends; and at least 1 cozy quilt.
Cream together traditions of the past with family and new customs. Gently add a puppy or baby. Stir in threads of cross stitch masterpieces to be treasured gifts.
Next, beat the Packers to the "GO PACKERS GO" stage; fold in her "jelly beans" Avery and Ella. Meanwhile, chill a perfect cheese cake to share with friends. Finally, mark with a new found rock and tuck a family quilt around it all.
Reserve recipe into handwritten recipe books made specially for granddaughters!
Finally look it over and say "it is what it is!" and smile that beautiful smile.
Pat spent her last days thinking of others just as she always did. She went to work. She made jelly to leave with family. She gathered the makings for German Chocolate cupcakes for Father's Day surprises. She wouldn't want others to be sad but would say her oft repeated slogan: "slap a little lipstick on and you'll be just fine!” Her wish for each of you would be to be busy, happy, together, and to smile as you remember her.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 25, 2016, at the Montrose United Methodist Church 109 S 2nd Ave., Montrose, South Dakota, at 10:30 am. With family present starting at 9:30.It will be a celebration of Pat's life followed by internment at the Montrose Cemetery and fellowship at the church hall.
