Lindy Herberg

February 13, 1928 — September 26, 2017

Lindy Clayton Herberg, 89, of Crookston, MN passed away Tuesday morning, September 26, 2017 at Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, ND.

Lindy Clayton Herberg was born on February 13, 1928, in Crookston, MN, and was one of fourteen children, to Harry and Anna Herberg.  Lindy grew up and for all of his life called Crookston, MN home.  There he would attend local school though the 8th grade.  Later in life Lindy would meet his beautiful wife Rose, where the two would later then be united in marriage on June 26, 1954, at St. Ann’s Catholic Church, in Crookston, MN.  Together as a couple, Lindy and Rose would make their home near Crookston, where they would spend all of their married lives until Rose passed away on October 3, 2005, at their home with Lindy right there by her side. Throughout his life, Lindy held many different jobs, some of which included, working for the Red River Alfalfa Plant, a house builder, and mostly notably, excavation, and snow removal. It wasn’t until 2013, when Lindy decided it was time to retire and enjoy some time off.  Lindy was a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church, in Crookston, MN, as well as the Crookston American Legion.   Some of Lindy’s favorite hobbies included, going to his cabin on Pine Lake and fishing, watching sports, especially, the Minnesota Vikings, traveling the country with his dog Buzzy, and most importantly, spending time with his grand kids, and great-grand kids.  Lindy will be missed dearly by all whom he has had the blessing to meet.

Lindy is survived in passing by his daughter Julie (Michael) Dodge of Fargo, ND; a son, Jason Herberg of Crookston, MN; grandchildren, Katarina Helley, Nigel Helley, Christian Dodge, Brandon Dodge, and Jade Dodge; and a great grand-daughter, Karmen Hingst.  Also surviving Lindy is his brother Lloyd Herberg of Babbit, MN; brother in-law Boyd Larson of Chaska, MN; sister in-laws, Delores Herberg, Delores Page, and Leona Braaten; as well as many, many nieces and nephews. Preceding Lindy in passing was his loving wife, Rose; parents Harry and Anna; brothers Raymond, Walter, Robert, Roger (Sandra), and Kenneth.  Also preceding Lindy in passing were his three sisters, Lavonne Larson, Harriet (Harold) Bangen, and Doris Krause; infant siblings, Donald, Milo, Gerald, and Emil; as well as a sister in-law Joyce Herberg.

A funeral service will be held to celebrate Lindy's life at Trinity Lutheran Church in Crookston, MN, on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 10:00am.  A visitation will be held the night before, Friday September 29, 2017 from 5:00-7:00pm, with a prayer service to follow at 7:00pm, at Stenshoel-Houske Funeral Home in Crookston, MN.  Burial will take place at Oakdale Cemetery in Crookston, MN, following the funeral service on Saturday.
