My mom grew up in Peterson too and I remember stories of Alta and Clenora when they were all young girls. Clair and Clenora were good neighbors and kind people. God bless and rest her soul.
I'm sorry for the loss of this distant relative of mine, a relative through my Mother's side the family, the Hjelle's. Blessings to her daughter and extended family as they grieve this loss. Fergus Presbye, Kent, WA
Sorry about your loss. You will not remember me but my mother (Evelyn Stedje Haag) was a cousin of Clenora and I remember as a kid visiting all the relatives in Minnesota and remember so plainly having a meal with your parents! I thank Louise Kjosa for forwarding the obit. to me. I live in Missoula, MT at this time. God Bless you at this time.
