Obituary for Viola Klosterbuer

VIOLA HELEN KLOSTERBUER was born January 26, 1918 to Harm and Effie Garrels near George, Iowa. She was baptized July 14, 1918 at the First Presbyterian Church in George. She went to country school through the eighth grade. She lived with her family for a short while near Steen, Minnesota and Little Rock, Iowa. Vi was united in marriage to Martin Klosterbuer on January 4, 1940 in the church parsonage in Little Rock. The couple settled on a farm two miles east of Ash Creek, Minnesota. Vi was a homemaker all her life. As part of that role, she worked alongside her husband on the farm, wherever and whenever she was needed. She lived on the farm for 45 years. In September 2014 she became a resident at the Parkview Manor in Ellsworth, Minnesota. On Wednesday, November 9, 2016 Vi went to be with her Lord at the age of 98 years, 9 months and 14 days.

Vi was a member of State Line Church prior to joining the First Presbyterian Church in Luverne, Minnesota. She taught bible school and was a member of Martha Circle. She enjoyed volunteer work at the Minnesota Veteran’s Home and as a member of RSVP. She enjoyed gardening and her flowers. Vi loved to cook and will be remembered for her homemade breads and pies. She made many potholders throughout the years and enjoyed giving them away to family and friends.

Vi will be lovingly remembered by her children, Merle (Joyce) Klosterbuer of Worthington, Minnesota, Lois (Gordon) Mulder of Luverne, and Steven (Sandra) Klosterbuer of Luverne; six grandchildren, Chad (Mandy) Klosterbuer, Jason Klosterbuer (friend, Emily Bass), Jody (Samuel) Warren, Mike (Jennifer) Mulder, Katie Klosterbuer and Casey Klosterbuer; and a sister-in-law, Caroline Garrels of Urbandale, Iowa. She was preceded in death by her husband, Martin; and five siblings, Marvin Garrels, Loren Garrels, Lorraine Arends, Ivadelle Wiertzema and Leona Klosterbuer.

Blessed be her memory!
