Nicole G. Landsem

August 25, 1998 ~ October 21, 2022 (age 24)


Nicole G. Landsem, age 24, resident of Edmore, ND, died Friday, October 21, 2022 near Edmore.

Nicole was born August 25, 1998 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the daughter of Debbie Strid and David Landsem.  She was raised and educated in Hettinger and Edmore, ND, graduating from Hettinger High School in 2017.  In high school she was involved with FBLA, Science Olympiad, OWLS, FCCLA, Student Council, Drama, Yearbook, Basketball, Volleyball, Band, National Honor Society, and Track while also waitressing at Scruffy’s in Hettinger, ND.  After graduating with honors, she attended college in Gillette, WY to pursue a degree in psychiatry.  In the fall of 2019 Nicole moved to Bismarck to attend BSC while also working at Johnny Carino’s, 40 Steak and Seafood, Powerhouse, and The Rice Bowl.  In the fall of 2021 she moved to the farm near Edmore and was working full time at Superpumper in Langdon, where customers said she was always smiling and helpful.  While there, she met her very special friend, Aaron.  Her spirit shone so bright and now it was even brighter.  Family and friends were extremely important to her and she would never want to see anyone sad, so she took the time and made the effort to let everyone know that they were important in her life.  Her friends say that she brought joy into every single room and always had a beautiful smile on her face.  She could connect to any person she met and would dance to any song that was playing.  Nicole loved the summer activities of longboarding with friends by the Missouri River, boating, waterskiing, and tubing at her Grandpa’s cottage at Lake Metigoshe, Manitoba.  She travelled to many provinces in Canada, many of the States and even Mexico.  Nicole and Aaron were planning on new adventures which included New York City, Vancouver, British Columbia, and Louisiana.  Travelling was one of her passions and she enjoyed seeing all the beauty the world had to offer.  Events such as “Luau at the Lake” and the “Black Sheep Festival” were just a couple of the places where her amazing ability to meet the people really shone through, and she was always welcoming new friends into her life.  She was very compassionate and generous in helping anyone in need, had a love for all animals, enjoyed rock and coin collecting, and fell in love with creating art.  Everywhere she went, her best friend Gypsy the cat, whom she could never live without, was right there beside her.  She wrote many poems, all in her own artful handwriting and was exceptional with her insight into the Universe around us.  Nicole was well versed in astrology and recently began the study of Numerology, offering readings to all her friends.  Her vivacious personality was matched only by her gorgeous red hair, beauty, infectious laugh, and loving soul.

Nicole will be deeply missed by all who knew her.  All of us are so very fortunate to have her in our lives.  Her memories will live on and she will be honored forevermore by her father, David Landsem of Edmore; mother, Debbie Strid and step-father Leo Strid of Hettinger, ND; step-mother, Kari Agotness of Langdon, ND; siblings, Isabelle Strid, Kayla Strid, and Nathan (Amanda) Strid, all of Hettinger, Brittany Myrvik of Grafton, ND, Megan Agotness of Lankin, ND, Colton Agotness of Grafton, and Logan Landsem of Langdon; grandmother, Helen A.

Landsem of Edmore and Duane (Keri) Gray of Calgary, Alberta; cousins, Emma, Cullen, and Xander Gray, all of Calgary; and her most special friend, Aaron Girodat of Langdon.
