Services will take place on Saturday, Sept. 30, at Blase-Strauser Memorial Chapel in Gothenburg at 1 p.m.
Engberg was born on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, 1985. The excitement of that particular Thanksgiving and the sentiment behind the holiday stayed with her all of her life, according to family members. She loved for things to be exciting, often saying things, telling stories or jokes, and playing little tricks.
She was known to have a generous soul and she loved to give gifts, always showing up with something and sending care packages to family as well as spoiling nieces and nephews, the family said. No occasion was too small to give someone a little piece of happiness and a reason to give was never necessary. It was who she was. She created a feeling of thanksgiving to all who were fortunate to know her.
Engberg lived without fear, she loved without guard and laughed with ease, stated family. She loved camping and traveling, especially with those she loved, shopping and spending time with friends and family.
?She leaves behind a legacy of love, where those who knew her will love more deeply because of their time with her, stated the family.
?Engberg was preceded in death by: her father, Robert (Pete) Tinlin.
