Patricia “Pattie” Stock

Patricia “Pattie” Stock, age 79, of Carrington, ND passed away in her sleep Thursday, January 25, 2024, at Golden Acres Manor, Carrington, ND.

Pattie was born June 24, 1944, in Bottineau, ND, the second daughter of Arnold and Marian Berg.  She graduated from Fessenden High School in 1962. Pattie attended Fargo Business College before becoming employed full-time in Fargo.

Pattie married Allen Stock on October 5, 1963, in Fessenden, ND. Last October they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.  Together they were blessed with four children, Susette, Shelly, Tim, and Tony.  In 1976, Pattie and Allen purchased the Foster County Independent and moved their family to Carrington, ND. Together they operated their business until Pattie retired in 2015.

Pattie was a stay-at-home mom until Susette, Shelly, and Tim were school-age. She enjoyed sewing, making many outfits, Halloween costumes, Barbie and baby doll clothing.

Pattie was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church and the Carrington Senior Citizen Center. Her hobbies included puzzles, crocheting, reading, iPad games, camping, and playing cards. Pattie was also very busy attending grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s activities.  She was so proud of all of them.

Pattie is survived by her sister, Linda (Curt) Meth, Edmond, OK; children: Susette (Linus) Allmaras, New Rockford, ND; Shelly (Brad) Skytland, Carrington, ND; Tim (Amy) Stock, Waconia, MN; and Tony (Tami) Stock, Frazee, MN. Grandchildren: Rachel Allmaras, Renelle Allmaras, Rebecca (Alex) Jarrett, Teddy Allmaras, Jordan (Kelsey) Skytland, Taylor (Josey) Skytland, Brenna Skytland, Morgan Stock, Mason Stock, Rylee Stock and Harlee Stock.  Great-grandchildren: Myles Thompson, Motley Skytland, River, Rhen and Amelia Skytland and Luca Littlefield.

Pattie was preceded in death by her husband, Allen; her sister, Sheila Krueger, brother-in-law, Larry Krueger and her parents.

  2. Suzette, Tim, Shelly, Tony,

    We are so sorry to hear of Pattie’s passing, especially so close to your dad’s. We remember the wonderful dinner with Pattie and Allen this summer at The View (I think we talked at least two hours).
    Blessings to your families during this time of sadness.

    Russ and Joan Miller

  6. Stock family, so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. You have had quite the winter losing them both so close. Now they can be together forever. Our thoughts are with all of you.

  7. Would’ve never dreamed this pair would be gone so soon after seeing them at the casino last time. I was hoping these newspaper icons were finding enjoyment in a long-deserved retirement. I enjoyed working with Pattie and send my condolences to her family of which she thought so highly. Remember the good times and hold those close! God bless!

  8. I am so sorry to hear about your mom. She was such a special person in so many ways. The many bridge games kept us all happy. I know this is a hard time for all of you, I have been keeping your parents in my prayers and now I will pray for the family who has suffered this loss 🙏

  9. We are so sorry for the loss of your Mother, may the memories of her stay in your hearts forever. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  11. Suzette, Shelly, Tim and Tony:

    So very sorry to hear this sad news. I have nothing but fond memories of both your mom and dad (actually the whole family) from working alongside them for so many years. Keep the memories in your hearts forever.

  12. Stock family,

    I’m so sorry that you have to experience such great a loss AGAIN.

    Pattie was like a second mom to me from the day you moved to town (in second grade). I spent as much time at your house as I did at mine and I loved being part of your family as well. Pattie was such a loving, caring person and I know you will miss her deeply.

    I will keep your family in my prayers as you walk through this valley.

    Hugs, Mary (Steinman)
