    Beverly Ann Fragodt (Shirley) was born to Gilmen and Mable (Larson) Shirley on April 24, 1929. She was baptized and confirmed at Viking Lutheran Church, rural Maddock. Beverly attended the Arne School, rural Maddock, for eight years and graduated from the Benson County Agricultural School in Maddock in 1948. She worked for the bank in Maddock and for Alvin Neumann, DDS, prior to her marriage. Beverly married Harold Fragodt on November 22, 1953, at Viking Church. The couple made their home on the family farm where Harold grew up.
    As a member of the St. Petri Lutheran Church, rural York, Beverly was involved with the Ladies Aid and taught Sunday School and Bible School. She loved children and especially enjoyed the opportunity to share God’s love with them. Her passion was her faith and she passed it on to her children, grandchildren, friends and neighbors through her works and words.
    She spent many hours with her grandchildren sharing the traditions of baking buns, lefsa, and pies as well as reading books and Bible stories. She was a loving and devoted wife, supporting Harold with farm and other activities.
    Beverly is survived by a son, James (Marie) Fragodt of Harlow, ND; two daughters, Jean (Keith) Johnson of Grand Forks, ND and Julie (Marco) Tollefson of Devils Lake; six grandchildren, Laura Nichols, Travis Johnson, Aaron Tollefson, Mindy Johnson, Kelly Fragodt and Rachael Tollefson.
