Doris Husbyn

March 12, 1921 — February 17, 2016

Doris V. (Berg) Husbyn a longtime resident of Cannon Falls MN passed away on February 17, 2016. She was 94. Doris was greatly loved in the community of Cannon Falls. She was born on March 12, 1921 in Dennison, MN to Mens and Edna Berg. The Berg family attended Wangen Prairie church. Doris was one of 7 children. She grew up on a farm, where there was one room for the boys and one room for the girls. She shared a bed with her sisters all her growing up years. In 1935 Doris made her way off the farm and into Cannon Falls where she attended high school for 4 years. She would live in town during the week and back home on the farm during the weekends. For a woman during this time, this was a major decision for her family to make. In 1943 Doris met Harold Husbyn. Harold was from Dennison also. During WWII Doris worked "up in the cities" of Minneapolis as a "Rosie Riveter". Doris was always proud of her work there, working the night shift, putting together airplane engines, helping the war effort. On July 15, 1944 Doris married Harold. Their daughter Natalie was born May 16, 1946. A few years later in 1952 Doris, Harold and Natalie moved from the farm in Dennison into a house that Harold built on Oak Street in Cannon Falls. Natalie had many happy memories of her childhood there. Doris was a regular baker and was known to always have a special something to go with coffee for every person who came through her door. Harold would often comment, "Some might have a wife as good as Doris; but none has any better." Doris lost Harold in 1987. Doris cared for Harold in their home for 13 years after his hip surgeries did not go as planned. People commented to her how amazed they were that she could do it. Doris would remark that she didn't understand their amazement. Those were some of the best years. They could sit and be together and she loved that. After Harold's passing, Doris continued to live on Oak Street until December, 2009. At some point between 1979 and 2009 you may have seen Doris driving through Cannon Falls in her 1979 green Chevy Caprice Classic on her way to the Cannon Falls Bakery or perhaps Country Kitchen or Wangen Prairie church. Doris loved Cannon Falls. Doris spoke lovingly of every friend she had and every new person she met. It was often said that rarely had anyone heard a negative word come from her lips. Doris loved God and loved people. She will be greatly missed. Doris is survived by her sister, Ardis Wilson of Morton, Illinois; her brother, Dallas (Millie) Berg of Northfield; her daughter, Natalie (Husbyn) Carlson and husband John Carlson; her grandchildren, Elizabeth, Joshua (Amanda) and their children Nardos, Netsanet, Hana, Micah, Boone, and Rhett, and John-Mark (Shantelle) and their children Zachariah and Sophia; also many nieces and nephews whom she dearly loved.
