Obituary

Myrna L. Jordahl (Boese), age 84 of Stockton, passed away on Saturday, July 17 at Gundersen Lutheran Health Services in La Crosse due to complications following a stroke. Myrna was born on April 4, 1937 in Mora, MN, the daughter of Carl and Lena (Helmke) Boese. She lived in the Lake Wilson area until she was 5 and then relocated to Rushford with her parents and brothers.

Myrna graduated from Rushford High School and immediately began working for their school district as a secretary; she also held a secretary position at the Hart Creamery. On April 12, 1962, she was united in marriage to the love of her life, Donald Jordahl, and their union was blessed with four children. Donald and Myrna tended to a family farm together for over 35 years and the deer hunting season was their only preferred 'vacation' from it.

In her spare time, Myrna cultivated both vegetable and flower gardens, played countless card games with friends and family, and was a staple in the St. John's Hart Kitchen Band for many years. She was also immensely proud of her kids and grandchildren, especially at their sporting events.

Myrna will always be remembered by her husband of 57 years, Don Jordahl; children, Scott Jordahl, Stephen (Jody) Jordahl, Sue (Alan) Bahler, Sharon (Corey Leff) Wood; grandchildren, Robert, Austin, and Logan Bahler, Lucas and Gavin Jordahl, Jeremy (Harlea) Wood, Jecob Wood, as well as Jolene, Nathan and Hudson Jordahl, and the Lucas family; great-grandson, Silas William Wood; sisters-in-law, Helen and Myrtle Boese; as well as many nieces, nephews, other extended family, and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Carl and Lena Boese; and brothers, Wayne and Virgil Boese.

There will be a Memorial Celebration of Myrna's Life held at 11:00AM on Saturday, July 24 at the St. John's Lutheran Church of Hart. Visitation will be held for two hours prior to the services at church from 9:00 to 11:00 AM. Burial will be held at the Minnesota State Veteran's Cemetery in Preston at a later date. The Hoff Funeral Home of Lewiston is assisting Myrna's family with arrangements.
