Marvin Lundeby

February 14, 1930 — October 28, 2023

Osnabrock, ND

Marvin Lundeby, 93, of Osnabrock, ND, passed away Saturday, October 28, 2023, at Osnabrock Community Living Center in Osnabrock.

Marvin Earl Lundeby was born February 14, 1930, to Henry and Janetta (Baker) Lundeby of Osnabrock, ND. He attended school in Osnabrock and graduated in 1948. After completing school, he enlisted in the Air Force from 1951 to 1955, during the Korean War where he attained the rank of Airman-First Class, and then went on to attend NDSSS in Wahpeton, ND. Upon returning to Osnabrock, Marvin joined the family farm with two of his brothers. He was united in marriage to Jeannette Jacobson on November 18, 1961, and they made their home in Osnabrock and raised their two sons.

Farming was Marvin’s life. After farming with his brothers, his sons began farming with him as they got older. His grandsons also joined when they were old enough. Even after he retired, he was still part of the farm from giving rides to and from the field or bringing out pop and cookies for a visit to see how things were going. The farm meant everything to him. Marvin was also a member of the Knights of Pythias where he served as Chancellor Commander and as the Grand Chancellor of the Domain of North Dakota. He served the Dovre Lutheran Church as secretary and trustee and sang in the church choir and men’s choir. He was also on the board of directors for the North Dakota State Barley Show for many years.

Marvin and Jeannette moved into the Osnabrock Community Living Center in the spring of 2016 where they made new friends and enjoyed visits from old friends and family.

Surviving Marvin are his wife, Jeannette; two sons: Steven and David (Kristine) of Osnabrock, ND; grandchildren: Luke and Christopher of Osnabrock, ND, and Hannah of Grand Forks, ND; brother Curt (Pat) of Sioux Falls, SD; and sister Eileen Fahnlander of Fargo, ND. Preceding him in death are his parents and siblings: Cecil, Arnold, Kenneth, Vivian, Adelene, and Evelyn.

A memorial service for Marvin will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 2, 2023, at the Osnabrock Community Living Center in Osnabrock, ND.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Osnabrock Community Living Center or Union Cemetery – both in Osnabrock, ND.
