Mavis Westergaard, age 82 of Oakland, passed away at home surrounded by family on August 14, 2022.
Mavis had a very strong faith and was a proud family woman, but her love of their family farm was not far behind. Her family called her daily life on the farm, “her living her dream”, which she spent raising their five children, working, gardening, riding the golf cart, caring for her horse, and admiring the birds and other wildlife. Her parents and siblings meant the world to her as well.

Survived by loving husband of 61 years, Eldar Westergaard; children, Carol (Greg) Pearse, Linda (Wayne) Fett, Julie (Keith) Osmonson, Cindi (Fred) Friedl, Jason Westergaard; grandchildren, Brittany Pearse, Briana (Erik) Dillon, Nathan (Kenzie) Fett, Kristi Fett (Dylan Gooder), Rachael, Tyler, Kristina, & Courtney Osmonson, Alex, Eric, & Andrew Friedl; great-grandchildren, Maylin, Caiden, Carson, Ella; siblings, Darlene (Richard) Jordahl, Lorraine (Bill) Goette, Glorian (Jerry) Hamson, Connie (Jan) Engebretson; and many other loving relatives and friends.
