Mehri was born Sept 29th, 1989 at Divine Redeemer Hospital in South St. Paul MN. She attended elementary school in Sioux Falls South Dakota until the 4th grade her family then moved to Fosston, MN. She attended elementary school and high school in Fosston, she enjoyed volleyball, basketball, cheerleading, and her french class.
After high school, Mehri achieved her CNA license and worked at a few different nursing homes in the Fosston area. In that time period, she started dating Brad and had 2 children, Peyton, and Allison. In 2014 they moved from the Fosston area to Moorhead, MN and she worked for Sandford Health in the ER. Brad took a job working in the elevator industry and Mehri opted to stay home to care for their children while Brad worked out of town. Brad and Mehri were married on April 10th 2015 in Las Vegas, NV and eventually moved to Minot, ND to support Brad and his career in the elevator trade. Mehri started part-time at Marketplace Grocery store and worked her way up the ranks to the Liquor store manager and eventually transferred to Frontend Manager of the grocery department. Mehri enjoyed spending time with family at the lakes, race track, and down time at home.
Mehri was a one of kind spirit, with a bubbly personality, a contagious laugh, a bright wide smile and a generous heart. She LOVED to cook, whether it was a quick breakfast of biscuits and gravy, or a long term commitment of smoking brisket, ribs, chicken, etc. A favorite food was crab legs, and she could out eat her husband if crab was on the menu! She loved new experiences, albeit trying blackjack at the casino down the road, checking out the new restaurant in town, or dancing the night away with friends. If she was there, she was up for it and always wanted to “boujee” things up. You’d be remised to find her without some sort of bling, or a trendy outfit. Mehri loved the book, Gone with Wind, and read this book repeatedly. A pure hearted romantic she could win over hearts of strangers with her smile. She cared for her family and also her furry friends Charlie, their gigantic dog (aka baby horse), and Porky the cat. She never had enough pets, and would always be on the lookout for more if they only had the room. With a Coca-Cola in hand, and smile on her lips, some bling in her hair, she truly was luxurious in life, and humble in character. She will be missed by so many.
Survivors include her husband Brad, children; Elijah, Peyton, and Allison. Mother, Pamela Quamme (Roy), Brother, Lance Hagen (Roberta), Grandmother, Lorraine Hagen, brother-in-law, Paul Munter (Krystal), many aunts and uncles, several nieces and nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her brother-in-law, Ethan Munter, Grandfather Robert Hagen.
