Corrine Sylvia Hovdenes was born on January 26, 1927, the daughter of Berndt and Petra (Elgin) Hovdenes. She grew up in rural Hamar, attending a country school through the 8th grade. She was a baptized, confirmed and life member of Sigdal Lutheran Church. Besides helping on the family farm, she also worked for a number of years at the Tolna Café.

Corrine was united in marriage to August Vick on January 10, 1948, in Devils Lake and they established their home at rural Hamar. She was the devoted farm wife, working along side her husband through the years and a loving, nurturing, mother to their children. She was always there to do whatever needed to be done. She had a large garden she tended to each year, from planting to canning and processing the produce. She also canned many jars of fruits and berries. August died January 7, 1981. Corrine remained on the farm a number of years.

Corrine was blessed to meet and marry Reuben Zabel in April of 1984 and they eventually established their home in Jamestown ND. They shared 19 years of marriage and happy years of retirement together. Reuben passed away on November 6, 2003. In 2015, Corrine moved to Bismarck due to increasing health issues.

Corrine embraced her Norwegian heritage full throttle. She was a life-long member of the Sons of Norway and a Dancer well into her 80’s. The dancers traveled throughout the state and beyond. She was a talented artist including Scandinavian arts and crafts and certified number one lefse and doughnut maker. She was an avid reader and enjoyed watching all kinds of sports with her son-in-law Rod. She always tuned in to the local sports tournaments, cheering for the hometown teams. She was a strong, independent woman, caring for herself, her home (mowing her own grass and cutting down trees), and for family and friends. She loved to travel to see grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Corrine was a woman of strong faith, determination, pride in her heritage and unconditional love for her family. Love forever to our dear mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great great grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.

Corrine’s loving family include her children Garry (Lori Stevenson) Vick, Devils Lake and Patty (Rod) Frey, Bismarck ND; grandchildren Missy (Dominic) Vick-Ebertz, Kim (Mike) Daniels, all of Devils Lake, Tracy (Irik) Borrowman, Denver CO; Steve (Briana) Frey, Omaha NE, Laurie (Dave) Frey Spickler, Bismarck, Rob (Karley) Frey, Duluth MN; great grandchildren Ashley (Ryan), Shayla, Dominic Jr., Nolan, Ethan, Alyssa, Niki, Dylan, Brook, Maris, Tiffany, Sofie, Maliah, Gideon, Madeline, Elizabeth, Theodore, Luke and Collins; great great grandson Liam; sister Bernice Christiansen of Athena OR and many nieces and nephews and their families.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husbands August and Reuben and brother Jerome Hovdenes.
