Oriet Althoff

Oriet Althoff, 76, of Webster passed away Saturday April 11, 2020 at Prairie Lakes Hospital in Watertown. Private graveside services will be 2:00 P.M. Saturday April 18, 2020 at Fron Lutheran Cemetery with a live-stream video available at Fiksdal Funeral Service Facebook page. Oriet Ann Stadsklev was born on July 4, 1943 to Clarence and Eunice (Peterson) Stadsklev in Day County, South Dakota. She was baptized and confirmed at Lily Lutheran Church. She attended country school near the family farm west of Lily, South Dakota. She then went on to attend Webster High School for two years until her father fell ill and Oriet quit school to help take care of the family farm. Oriet moved around a lot living with different families throughout the years when her family fell on hard times. She was united in marriage to Eugene Althoff on October 2, 1961 in Wheaton, MN. The couple made their home on a farm southwest of Roslyn, SD. To this union four children were born, Myrna, Orrin, Robert, and Carol. The flooding of 1996 forced the couple to move off the farm and into Webster. Oriet worked various jobs in the Webster area, most recently at Perebooms in housekeeping. Eugene passed away in November 2019. Oriet enjoyed sewing, quilting, gardening, and canning. She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Oriet passed away April 11, 2020 at Prairie Lakes Hospital at the age of 76 years 9 months and 4 days. She will be greatly missed by her son, Orrin Althoff of Roslyn, SD; two daughters, Myrna (Raymond) Spaar of Webster, SD and Carol Althoff of Aberdeen, SD; four sisters, Carolyn Ellefson of Ham Lake, MN, Sherry (David) Belden of Dear Island, OR, Wanda (Dale) Strike of Isanti, MN, and Janet (LeRoy) Snyder of Otsago, MN. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, son Robert, two sisters, Marie and Carol, one grandson Michael, and one great-granddaughter Ally.

My sympathy to the Alhtoff and Stadsklev families. I attended eight years of school with Oriet...first at Wild Rose 193 and then in Lily. I enjoyed seeing her at Sunday services held once a year in our Lily Lutheran church. May Oriet rest in peace. Carmen Callsen Wika

Orient was married to my first cousin Eugene. I will always remember Oriet for being so kind and easy to talk with. I am very thankful to have been able to attend the Gramberg Family Reunion in 2019 as I live in California. I visited with both her and her husband Eugene who passed away in Nov. 2019 and will treasure the photo I took of them at the reunion. I will always remember their visit to Calif. when they came to visit their son Robert when he was in the Navy. They all came to our home for dinner and I had my entire family there so they could meet them. It is always sad to hear when family passes away but I take comfort that when she took her last breath on earth she took her next breath in heaven. My most heartfelt sympathy to her family/

We shared a name - an unusual name so we had that connection. We teased each other about who spelled their name incorrectly. Hers was Oriet, mine is Oriette. Blessings to her friends and family as they celebrate her life with memories
