Obituaries

When a death occurs, we assist families with the timely distribution of death notices and obituaries.

As a courtesy to the families we serve, the online obituary page is designed for those family and friends who are unable to attend services. The obituaries and floral arrangement photos will be placed on our web page according to the month of death. We invite family and friends to sign and write a message of sympathy to the family using the online guest book. We will print and present the messages to the family. Lastly, in order to view the floral arrangements link, visitors must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on their computer to download the document.

This page will inform you of the time and date of those currently in our care. Our search page will help you find past services for obituary and flower information. If you would like any further information regarding the service arrangements, please feel free to call us at 1-800-228-3588 or 701-838-2832 or you can email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

We also have a facebook page in which many families use to efficiently share obituary and service information with their family and friends. To access the Thomas Family Funeral Home facebook page, click the facebook icon above. There are two easy ways to share: 

  • From our website, simply copy and paste the link of your loved one's obituary to your personal facebook page or 
  • Click the share option on our facebook page to post your loved one's obituary to your personal facebook page (you must be logged into your facebook account)
