Cathy Ericson, 64 of Fergus Falls passed away Wednesday, July 28, 2021, at Sanford Health in Fargo.
Cathy Lynn Ericson was born on May 27, 1957, in Powers Lake, North Dakota the daughter of Walter and Mary Lou (Nygaard) Hoff. She was baptized and confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church in Columbus, North Dakota. Cathy attended Columbus Public School and later the Fergus Falls Community College becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN).
Cathy and Daniel Ericson were married on September 28, 1974, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Columbus. They spent many of their 50 loving years together in western North Dakota before moving to Fergus Falls, Minnesota in 1990.
Cathy was a dedicated nurse and caregiver for over 25 years. She took great pride in co-owning Harmony Home Health Care with her daughters for the last 16 years. Throughout her nursing career, she also provided foster care for medically fragile children along with her never-ending devotion for caring for her own medically fragile daughter.
She enjoyed reading, flower gardening, flea markets, and spending time with friends and family at the lake. Cathy spent many hours spoiling her grandchildren, and just knew how to make every moment special from popcorn & movies to playing a board game of Monopoly. Cathy was immensely proud of her family, and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories.
