    • Janet Serfling, age 62, of Huron, died Thursday, June 1, 2017, at her home. Her funeral service was held at 10:30 AM, Thursday, June 8th, at the Our Savior's Lutheran Church. Burial was in the Restlawn Memory Gardens Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made to James Valley Christian School, Beadle County Humane Society or a charity of the donor's choice.

      Janet Marie Skrogstad was born November 17, 1954, to Melvin and Mary (Stabo) Skrogstad at Princeton, Minnesota.
      She graduated from Fargo North High School in 1972.
      On November 17, 1973, she married her true love, Murray Serfling at Peace Lutheran Church in Fargo.

      Janet faced many health concerns over the years. After nearly 20 years of living with diabetes, she received a pancreas transplant 15 years ago, from an anonymous donor. The following year she received a kidney transplant, with the kidney donor being her husband. The transplant gave Janet a new lease on life.

      Over the years, Janet has enjoyed babysitting, shopping, spending time with family, and coffee dates with her church friends. Janet loved baking, reading mystery novels or cookbooks, and watching mystery shows and old TV programs. Most of all, Janet relished the role of Grandma. She never missed an opportunity to spend time with her grandkids. She could often be found playing dress up or silly made up games with them.

      In 2016, Janet and her husband purchased the company where he had been employed for the previous 44 years. They renamed it Easi Pour, and were very proud of this recent milestone.

      Janet is survived by her husband, Murray Serfling of Huron; their children, Megan Serfling, Holly (Darric) O'Brian and Gregory Serfling, all of Huron; her beloved grandchildren, Wyatt, Sofia and Maddigan. She is also survived by her mother, Mary Skrogstad; her sisters, Margaret (Lyle) Heinle, Barbara (Jeff) Perreault and Julie (Cameron) Merkel; her brothers, Will (Dawn) Skrogstad, Michael Skrogstad and Jeffrey (Peggy) Skrogstad, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, two aunts and her in-laws.

      She was preceded in death by her grandparents, father and a great niece.
