Arline Sebring, 60

Arline Mary Sebring (Vogel), 60, of Cokato, MN, passed away Sept. 10, 2022, peacefully at her home in Cokato.

Arline was born June 5, 1962, to Bernadine and Melvin Vogel in Staples, MN, where she lived on the farm until she graduated.

After graduating from Motley High School in 1980, she married her high school sweetheart, Michael Sebring. Michael enlisted in the army, and they moved around with each duty station he was assigned to, including Texas and Alaska.

They had four kids together, and with every kid they grew deeper and deeper in love. The oldest, Amanda Lee Sebring; their set of identical twins, Jason Michael Sebring and Jarod Melvin Sebring; and youngest son, Travis Hal Sebring.

Eventually, Arline landed in Cokato with her family, and her and Michael started setting down roots. Once the children were old enough, she started working outside the home at various manufacturing plants, and made her way to 3M in Hutchinson, MN, were she worked there for 30 years.

When both of her parents passed away, Arline and Michael bought half the family farm, and had plans to retire and build their forever home. They were almost done moving and ready to start building.

Arline enjoyed being surrounded by friends and family and playing family games together such as Taboo. She also enjoyed being around a camp fire surrounded with friends and family sharing stories, music, and laughing, maybe even having a cocktail or two.

Arline had a big heart, and cared about others more than they cared about themselves sometimes. She will always be remembered for how much she cared about everything, including the little things.

Arline is preceded in death by her parents, Bernadine and Melvin Vogel; her brothers, Ed Vogel, and Donald Vogel; her father-in-law, Gerald Sebring; and Dennis Caouette.

Arline is survived by her husband, Michael Sebring; children, Amanda Sebring (Eric Brubaker), Jason Sebring (Lucynda Sebring), Jarod Sebring (Sara Sebring), and Travis Sebring (Julie Wagner); and 15 grandchildren.
