Maurice Daniel Soberg was born to Harry and Jennie (Anderson) Soberg on April 27, 1926 in Farwell, MN. He was baptized by immersion, in Jesus’ name, around 8 years old in Farwell, MN. He attended country school until the 8th grade. Maurice attended and graduated from Apostolic Bible Institute in St. Paul, MN, before earning his mastery in carpentry. Following his schooling, Maurice worked in construction in St. Paul.
On June 14, 1952, Maurice married the love of his life Alice Meyerson in Minneapolis, MN. After their marriage the couple continued to live in work in the area until 1973. They moved to Kensington and bought a farmhouse where they could enjoy raising their growing family. The last several years, Maurice and Alice loved spending the winters in Western North Dakota with their daughter and her family.
Maurice could be described as many things, but what comes to mind first is his hardworking spirit, loving heart, and giving personality. He adored his family more than anything and gave selflessly wherever he could. Maurice never stopped working and often made the joke that he would die in his working boots. As he predicted, Maurice spent his days working on projects until his time of passing.
