Nan Louise Yager of Devils Lake passed away on Sunday, January 9, 2022 at Altru Medical Center in Grand Forks at the age of 74 surrounded by her family.

She was an avid animal lover and along with her own animals would take care of any stray she came across. She was known to carry around treats for the dogs she encountered during the many walks she would take during the day.

Nan enjoyed reading, spending time with her friends and family and was an active member of St. Olaf Lutheran Church. Her favorite pastime was riding on the back of the motorcycle with Joe.  They enjoyed many hours on the road both by themselves and with their amazing friends visiting many beautiful places around the country.
