Judy A. Martinson, 83, West Fargo, ND and formerly of Emerado, ND, passed away Monday, November 1, 2021 in Fargo.

Judith Ann Bergsrud was born July 23, 1938 in Emerado, the daughter of Willard and Edith (King) Bergsrud. She was raised in Emerado and graduated from Emerado High School. Judy moved to Grand Forks to attend Aaker’s Business College where she studied accounting and shorthand writing.

Judy married Allen Rheaume on October 25, 1956 in Larimore. Due to Allen’s military service, the couple lived in several places before returning to Larimore. Allen passed away in December of 1964.
