Selmer Storseth, 88, of Williston, ND, died Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at the Eastern Montana Veteran’s Home in Glendive, MT.

Selmer “Sam” Storseth, son of Carl and Martha (Lund) Storseth, was born April 28, 1922 at Fertile Valley Township, Divide County, North Dakota. Selmer was raised on the family homestead farm and attended Fertile Valley Township School through the eighth grade. He then attended and graduated from Grenora High School in 1941. He played basketball and baseball during and after high school. He also learned to cut meat at a local grocery store in Grenora during high school.

Selmer entered the US Army in the fall of 1942. He was honorably discharged due to medical reasons in the fall of 1943.

On June 15, 1944 Selmer married Isabelle Olson in Plentywood, Montana. He purchased the Olson homestead farm in 1945. The couple raised small grain crops and cattle. They also milked cows and raised chickens. In 1965 they received the Williams County Soil Conservation Award and an aerial picture of the farm. They provided for and raised five children on the family farm, Merriel, Emelie, Audrey, Craig and Calvin. In 1987 Selmer and Isabelle retired from farming and moved to Williston for the winter months. Selmer’s interest in farming never left him. The farm was his real home-a special place.

Even more important to Selmer were his grandchildren. They were his pride and joy, especially in his later years. He treasured each moment with them. He would take them hunting and would watch them play basketball, baseball and swim. He gave them driving lessons at the farm, and would show his love for them in many ways. Each child had a special place in his heart. They were his joy and inspiration. Selmer was a special grandpa that cannot be replaced.

Selmer was a member of St. Petri Lutheran Church in Bonetrail. While living in Williston, he also attended Lutheran Brethren Fellowship Church and Our Redeemer’s Lutheran Church. God had touched him, especially in his later years.

Selmer’s wife, Isabelle loved and cared for him endlessly, especially in the later years of his life. Selmer entered the Eastern Montana Veteran’s Home in Glendive, Montana in September 2010.

He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Isabelle of Williston, ND; sons, Merriel of Los Angeles, CA, Craig (Barb) of Minot, ND, Calvin (Patsy) of Bismarck, ND; daughters, Emelie (Rick) Woodall of Star, ID and Audrey (Peter) Pinney of Miami, FL; ten grandchildren, Shawn and Tyler Storseth, Carissa, Colton and Jared Storseth, Andy (Lisa) Spencer and Sarah (Mike) Lee, Armando (Vanessa) Benitez and Rachel Benitez, and Brock (Erica) Melland; seven great-grandchildren; brothers, Casper of Minot, ND, and Harold of Casselton, ND; and sisters, Alma English and Mary Chance both of Seattle, WA.

He was preceded in death by his parents; son, David; brothers, Morris and John; and sisters, Olga and Myrtle.
