A sister, Mrs. Tillie Nordeen of Odebolt and two brothers, August and Ed Lundblad, four children proceded her in death. Seventeen grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren and a host of other relatives and innumerable friends will mourn her passing.
She was a member of the Kiron Baptist church while living here. She truly loved the Lord with all her heart. Her prayers ascended as a sweet savior to the Lord for her own and for his servants. Truly a prayer warrior, with faith to remove mountains. We believe that her prayers continue for all of us. She lived a long and useful life. She now rests with the Saviour she loved and served.
