Tork has asked that we share the passing of Norma Baranick, wife for 65 years of Dan Baranick, on June 6th, 2020 in Minot North Dakota. She grew up in Regan and graduated nursing school in 1953. She moved to Minneapolis and worked at Northwestern Hospital after beginning her career at Hazen Memorial Hospital.
In 1955, she married Dan who was a pharmacy student at NDSU. He graduated in 1958 and was a pharmacist at Osco in St Cloud Minnesota. Dan’s career took them to Illinois and then to Minot where they currently live.
She had an abundance of hobbies including travel she was not ashamed to voice her opinion on political matters.....that would have been something to sit in on!
