Beverley Jeanne Sechser of Pine River passed away at St. Joseph’s Medical Center on Sunday, October 4, 2020 at the age of 81. She was born to Raymond and Barbara Bair on April 20, 1939 in Swanburg, Minnesota. She married Robert Sechser on November 29, 1958 and together they raised nine children in rural Pine River.
Bev loved life and enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She loved to laugh and had a great sense of humor. She spent a lot of time in the kitchen cooking and baking. She sometimes cooked enough to feed the entire block and her pies were a special request at all family gatherings.
Bev had a generous heart. She would often be found sewing for kids and grandkids and knitting hats, mittens and prayer shawls for anyone who needed them.
Bev is survived by her children: Gary (Laura), Patricia Seidel, Michael (Carol), Mary Seidel (Warren), Paul (Sheila), Joe (Amber), Barb Bergquist (Mark), Chuck (Paka), Julie Nordstrom (Kurt); her siblings: Charles Bair (Terry), Karen Riley, Betty Schlapkohl (Craig), John Gearns, Jr. (Jessie); 26 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.
Funeral services will be held at 11 AM on Friday, October 9th at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Pine River. Visitation will also be held at the church on Thursday, October 8th from 5 to 7 PM and one hour prior to the funeral on Friday. Arrangements are with Kline Funeral Home, Pine River.
