Lynette Karboviak

December 19, 1960 — March 14, 2018

Lynette “Lyn” A. R. Karboviak (LARK), 57, of Moorhead, MN, formerly of Crookston, MN, passed away peacefully in her home Wednesday morning, March 14, 2018, with family at her side. She had been valiantly battling cancer for two years.

Lynette was born at Hallock, MN on December 19, 1960, the daughter of Edmund and Lillian (Miksatko) Karboviak. She was baptized and confirmed in the Catholic faith and grew up at Lancaster where she received her early years of education. At the age of 14 she moved with her family to Crookston and graduated from Mount St. Benedict High School in 1979. Lynette had most recently been employed by the American Crystal Sugar Company in Moorhead, working in the lab.

Lynette loved to travel and was always ready for an adventure. She was a devout Catholic and a member of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Moorhead. During her lifetime she made four mission trips to various cities in the United States, wherever help was needed the most, and had also made a mission trip to Jamaica.

Lynette will be very lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her 3 siblings: Karen Pietrusinski of Chicago, IL, and Cindy (Bruce) Altepeter and Loren Karboviak of Crookston, MN; her 8 nieces and nephews: Michael Pietrusinski, Alexis (Tom) Mann, Brian Pietrusinski, Kristin Altepeter, Brad (Sarah) Altepeter, Barry (Margaret) Altepeter, Alan (Kayla) Altepeter, and Erika Altepeter, her  great-nieces and nephews: Jenny (Bob) Manias, Andrew Nelson, Kaitlin, Jacob, Hailey, Aspen, Johnny, and Aaron Altepeter, and Kryton Mesrour; and many other relatives and friends. Lynette was preceded in death by her parents, Edmund and Lillian Karboviak; an infant brother, Jerry, who died at birth; a beloved nephew, Adam Altepeter, who died on August 23, 2004; and brother-in-law, John Pietrusinski, who died on January 22, 2005. May God richly bless Lynette’s memory.
