Henrietta was born on July 27, 1931 in Mercer County, ND to Theodore and Johanna (Spier) Sailer. On June 25, 1950 she married her loving husband of 70 years, Herman Oestreich at Trinity Lutheran Church, Mannhaven, ND by Rev. Bultman. Herman passed away on August 10, 2020.
Henrietta loved to tend to her animals on the farm, especially her baby calves. She also raised chickens and grew a large garden every year. She enjoyed gardening and canning the goods that came from the garden. Henrietta loved to entertain company, as well as cook for them. No one, not family or even a salesman, ever left Henrietta’s home hungry. Henrietta also took the time to teach her grandchildren and great-grandchildren how to cook and bake many different recipes. When Henrietta wasn’t tending to life on the farm or cooking for her family, she enjoyed crocheting, always having a project in the works.
She is survived by her children, Jackie (Rudy) Tesky, Keith Oestreich and Kevin (Kim) Oestreich; five grandchildren, Travice (Stephanie) Tesky, Teresa Tesky, Tanya (Chad) Couture, Derek (Morgan) Oestreich and Stacy Oestreich; 12 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; one step-great-granddaughter; one brother, Nathaniel (Luella) Sailer; one brother-in-law, Vincent (Mary) Oestreich; and several nieces and nephews.
Henrietta was preceded in death by her husband, Herman; her parents and parents-in-law; and one brother, Ray Sailer.
