Obituary for Evelyn Iveland

EVELYN LEONA IVELAND was born to Charles and Anna (Kuper) Loger on April 14, 1922 on a farm in Kanaranzi Township, near Ellsworth, Minnesota. She attended country school through the eighth grade and then stayed home and helped out on the farm. The family later moved to Ash Creek, Minnesota and then settled in Luverne, Minnesota. In Luverne, she worked as a waitress and then took a job at AR Woods. She married Boyd Iveland on March 3, 1946 at the Stateline Church near Ellsworth. The couple lived on a farm east of Luverne and then made their home on a farm near Kenneth, Minnesota. Along with being a full-time homemaker, Evelyn waitressed at the VFW. In December of 1964, they moved into Luverne where she began babysitting. Following Boyd's death on October 7, 1972, Evelyn continued to reside in their home.
