Audrey "Lovesy the Clown" (Boe) Steuck of Moorhead, MN, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on November 17, 2021.
Audrey was born on June 27, 1937, in Kenmare, ND, to John and Alma (LaCaille) Boe. She graduated from Minot High School in 1955 and attended Minot State College and NDSU, graduating from NDSU in 1992 after having gone back for her degree later in life.
She was united in marriage to her college sweetheart Gary L. Steuck, on June 13, 1959, in Minneapolis, MN.
As a girl she had a love for skating and was a professional figure skater with Holiday on Ice. She also directed and choreographed the Bottineau (ND) Ice Show and helped direct and skated in Crookston (MN) Ice Show.
In 1990, God called her to be a clown for Him. She went back to NDSU for training in theatre to become a clown. She spent many happy days clowning for children young and old throughout the area as a member of Plain People Entertainment and was the founder and director of The Funny Company Clowns for Christ, where her character "Lovesy the Clown" was born. She taught clowning and puppetry classes at Trinity Bible College in Ellendale, ND, and trained many children and adults in the art of clowning and puppetry in her church, Fargo Assembly of God (Northview Church), and several churches in the area. Her two grandchildren, Jordan and Kelsey, were the love of her life and they also clowned with her. A memorable clowning event was participating in a children's crusade with The Funny Company for The Billy Graham Association in Fergus Falls, MN.
For many years she was involved in the Shaklee business and worked out of her home while also raising her three children. She also worked for Kelly Services and Noridian Administration Services where she was a mail claims specialist. Later, she was with Tahitian Noni and never stopped drinking her Noni juice.
She wrote two versions of a children's book, Metamorpha Who? (secular) and I'm a Whole Brand New Me (Christian) and wrote a Christmas musical, The Toymakers Barn.
She was active in church all her life in many different capacities. Later in her life, she became a member of the Red Hat Ladies Society and the Prime Time Choir.
She enjoyed crafts of all kinds and sold her one-of-a-kind jewelry, Heirlooms from the Heart, by Audrey, and balloon art in the area.
She is survived by her children, Timothy Steuck, Moorhead, and Michelle Bishoff, Fargo, ND; brother, Gerald Boe, San Antonio, TX; and grandchildren, Jordan Bishoff, Denver, CO, and Kelsey (Matthew) Schuster, Fargo.
She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Alma Boe; brothers, Johnny, Dennis, and Terry Boe; and son Jeffery Steuck.
Audrey once told her granddaughter, Kelsey, that you should wear bright and fun colors to a funeral as they are a celebration of life. Audrey's family would love for you to join them in the celebration of her life.
A Visitation for Audrey will begin at 10:00 AM, Tuesday, November 23, 2021, followed by her Funeral Service at 11:00 AM, in Northview Church, Fargo, ND. Burial will be in Riverside Cemetery, Moorhead, MN.
