Mabel Fanny (Andresen) Tingberg
Mabel Tingberg, Arvilla, ND, died Saturday, June 11th, 2011, at Valley 4000, Grand Forks, N.D.
Mabel Fanny Andresen was born December 18th, 1915, in Oslo, Norway, to Anna (Bentsen) and Oscar Andresen. She was raised by an aunt and her grandmother because her mother and father performed world-wide with the Ringling Bros, Barnum, & Bailey Circus.
Mabel's education included schooling and training as a hairdresser and beautician, becoming a certified Master Beautician and Master Hairdresser. She married Roy Tingberg in 1939. After the war, she and Roy owned and operated a unisex Barber and Beauty Salon in downtown Oslo. In 1950, Roy, worried about the outbreak of another war in Europe, immigrated to the United States to establish a business, settling in Chicago. Mabel followed in 1951, along with their two sons, Peter and Erik. Roy became a Naturalized Citizen in 1955, with Mabel, Erik, and Peter becoming naturalized in 1956.
They spent the next thirty years raising a family and operating their separate Beauty and Barber shops. Roy and Mabel retired and moved to Tampa, Florida, in 1983, where they enjoyed some of their later years with friends from Chicago who had retired to the same area. In 2001, Roy and Mabel moved to North Dakota to live with Erik and his wife Mary in Arvilla.
Mabel is survived by her two sons, Erik (Mary) Tingberg (Arvilla, ND) and Peter Tingberg (Austin, TX), four grandchildren (Keith, J. Erik, Sean, and Troy) and four great-grandchildren (Zachary, Noah, Trystan, and Alexis).
Mable was preceded in death by her husband Roy on November 22, 2010
