Mary Duphorn

Published: Wednesday, August 1, 2007 12:54 PM CDT

Mary Patricia Duphorn, 58, a lifelong Crookston, Minnesota resident, died Monday evening, July 30, 2007, in the Riverview Hospital in Crookston. Mary was born in Crookston on May 3, 1949, the daughter of Paul and Josephine (Hogan) Vaudrin. She was baptized and confirmed at St. Anne's Catholic Church and graduated from St. Joseph's Academy in 1967. She then worked for a year as bookkeeper for Tuseth Sand and Gravel before moving to Moorhead, Minnesota to attend the Moorhead Area Vocational-Technical Institute. On June 9, 1969 Mary was united in marriage to Gerald A. Duphorn at St. Anne's. Later that year she received her Associate Degree in Accounting and Data Processing from the AVTI. During the early years of her working career Mary was employed in the Crookston offices of Emerson Insurance, Anderson Beverages Inc., and the Swanson Law Office. In 1987 she went to work for Crookston Welding and NAPA, and then in 1995 began doing the bookkeeping and accounting for Crookston Fuel Company/Ampride. Throughout the years she also worked with her husband, Jerry, performing office duties for Jerry Duphorn and Associates. Due to ill-health Mary retired in October of 2006.

She was a member of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception parish and the Crookston Eagles Auxiliary. Mary was also an avid bowler and longtime member and officer in the local WIBC. For many years she was active in the leadership of YABA, a youth bowling program. As time during her busy life allowed, Mary liked to read and had become a real NASCAR fan. She would watch the races on television with family and friends, and a special highlight for her was a trip to the race at Talledega (Alabama) with several girlfriends. Mary will be very lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her family and friends.

Family members include her husband of thirty-eight years, Jerry; two sons and daughters-in-law, Troy and Sara Duphorn of East Grand Forks, MN, and Darin and Kara Duphorn of Bloomington, MN; two step-granddaughters, Ashley and Cassandra; her mother, Jo Vaudrin of Crookston; four brothers, James Vaudrin of Twin Falls, ID, John (Diane) Vaudrin of Denver, CO, Robert (Jerri) Vaudrin of Fargo, ND, and David of Ft. Worth, TX; two sisters, Rosemary Vaudrin of Fargo, and Maureen (James) Laughery of Crookston; and many nieces, nephews, and other relatives. Mary was preceded in death by her father, Paul, who died on March 31, 2001.

The funeral service for Mary Duphorn will be held at 10:00AM, Saturday, August 4, 2007, in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Crookston with the Rev. Mario Prada, presiding. Visitation will be at the Cathedral on Friday from 5-7PM, with a 7PM prayer service, and also for one hour before the funeral. Interment will be in the Calvary Cemetery in Crookston. The Stenshoel-Houske Funeral Home is in charge of funeral arrangements.
