FARGO, N.D. — Odessa May Gietzen, in Fargo, was received in the arms of the Lord on June 2, 2014. She blessed those on Earth with her presence for only a few months, but will remain in the hearts of her family forever.
In Odessa’s short life, she faced many challenges, but with her family she fought courageously. She was an inspiration to many, especially her parents, who drew strength from her bravery and the calmness that she always had, even with her health issues.
Odessa loved to light up the room with her smile and always had a lot to say. Her siblings greatly enjoyed her smile and the time they spent entertaining her.
She will be greatly missed by her parents, Raphael and Nicole (Rieck) Gietzen; siblings, Aidric, Natalya, Ellianna, and Atticus; grandparents, Bonnie Rieck, Russell and Anh Gietzen; and many aunts, uncles, cousins — all who are anxiously awaiting to be reunited with their little princess.
There will be a funeral service at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 6, 2014 at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church, Fargo, with a visitation one hour prior.
