Avery Lynn Obrigewitch, 3 days old. Due to an untreatable condition, Avery went home to be with the Lord and into the loving arms of Grandma Cecelia on Feb. 1, 2014 at St. Alexius Hospital in Bismarck. She passed away peacefully in the arms of her Mom and Dad.
Avery Lynn Obrigewitch was born premature at 32 weeks, 5 days on Jan. 29, 2014, the daughter of Mike and Diana Obrigewitch.
She joined her big sister Mikayla and her big brothers, Braden and Noah.
Avery was a beautiful baby girl with a strong will and a very special heart. She loved it when her Daddy kissed her forehead and would open her eyes to peek at him. She snuggled in close when her Mommy got to hold her for the first time. Avery loved to hold her parents and siblings fingers and would always respond to their touch; especially when Mikayla and Braden would touch her hands and feet. Noah thought she was pretty cool. Avery was a blessing from God and graced everyone that was around her. She was a fighter all along.
She was preceded in death by her grandmother, Cecelia Obrigewtich; and great-grandparents, Tauno and Betsy Suomala, Antone and Bertha Obrigewitch and Sam and Antoinette Kessler.
