Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Around Christmas, we carried a story about a delightful Fargo woman named Donna Carlson. We called her the "Krumkake Queen" because even at the age of 87, Donna cranked out hundreds of the holiday treats.

Over the weekend, Donna passed away. She had been diagnosed with cancer just days ago.

Despite her debilitating Rheumatoid Arthritis and against doctors' orders, Donna continued to sit and make Krumkake to fill the many requests she received during the holidays year.

Her funeral is set for this Wednesday at Bethel Church in south Fargo.
