Obituary for Dennis Arthur Selberg

Dennis Arthur Selberg, age 76, was born on October 2, 1942, in Worthington, MN, the son of Arthur and Margaret (Reese) Selberg. He attended country school through grade 6 and then attended Worthington Public Schools, graduating from high school in 1960. Dennis attended Worthington Junior College and South Dakota State University, graduating with a BS in Agriculture Education. After completing active duty training with the Army National Guard, he taught vocational agriculture in Winona, MN for the remainder of the school year. Dennis then was an associate county agent in Glencoe, MN for three years. It was during that time that he married Judith Lillian Rients on May 27, 1967. They moved back to Worthington in June of 1969. Dennis worked for Production Credit Association (later called Farm Credit Services) until December of 1989 as a loan officer/farm records specialist and later VP of Credit. He spent seven years in commercial bank lending followed by seven years as a Farm Management Instructor for Minnesota West Community College.
Dennis was active in the community serving on the United Way Board, was Secretary/Treasurer of the Nobles County Fairboard for twelve years, was a member of the Early Risers Kiwanis, and was active on various committees and church council as well as Treasurer of First Lutheran Church. He was a member of the Army and Air Force National Guards from February of 1965 through June of 1975. Dennis was a ten gallon Red Cross bloodmobile donor. He and Judy enjoyed camping along with biking, hiking, fishing, pickleball, and woodworking. But the most enjoyment was the time spent with the grandchildren and families and friends. Dennis passed away on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, at his residence in Worthington, MN.
Dennis is survived by his wife, Judy of Worthington, MN; three children, Darren (Joan) Selberg of Minneapolis, MN, Gail (John) Graupman of Mankato, MN, and Renee Eaton of Blacksburg, VA; seven grandchildren, Malachi, Benjamin, Lillian, and Maggie Graupman, Lillian and Paige Selberg, and Leah Eaton, and a sister, Joyce (Walter) Wilson of St. Cloud, MN.
