Rae R. Workman, 83, of Langdon, ND, passed away Thursday, March 12, 2020, at Valley Eldercare in Grand Forks, ND, with her daughter and good friend, Patricia, by her side.
Rae Rosella Gebur was born October 15, 1936, on her grandmother’s farm near Rock Lake, ND, to Michael and Dolores Gebur. She grew up and went to school in the Calvin area before attending college in Fargo for a short time. Rae moved to Zion, Illinois, and married Walter Workman. She worked as a secretary at the VA hospital in Waukegan, IL, for many years. Later, she returned to North Dakota and settled in Langdon where she lived with her mother, Dolores, until her passing in 2006. Rae was a resident at Osnabrock Living Center until moving to Valley Eldercare in Grand Forks in 2019. She enjoyed reading books, especially her Bible, and doing many kinds of crafts, which she liked to give to relative and friends. She looked forward to spending time at the Senior Center in Langdon, where she made cards and visited with her friends.
