Obituary

Harriett Alice Iverson, age 90 of Austin, Minnesota, passed away peacefully surrounded by family Wednesday, August 22, 2018 at St. Mark’s Living in Austin where she resided for nine years. Harriett was born June 9, 1928 in “Brown Place Farm”, LeRoy Township, Mower County, Minnesota to Harry and Alida (Engerud) Rudlong. She attended “Hembright” country school in LeRoy Township, Minnesota. On November 9, 1946, Harriett was united in marriage to Kenneth Iverson in Grand Meadow, Minnesota. Ken and Harriett resided in the Austin area, where they raised their family of eight. Harriett had various jobs over the years, including the LeRoy Produce Company, St. Olaf Hospital as a nurse’s aide, Owatonna Canning Company, Libby Canning Company, and loved her role as a homemaker. She was a devoted and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Harriett was a hardworking, generous, and frugal woman who did her best to live and promote those values in her family. She was a long-time member of the First United Methodist Church in Austin. Harriett enjoyed word search, reading, and loved traveling, including several trips out west, one to Norway, and several bus trips. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Those left to cherish Harriett’s memory are her children Kenneth ‘Duane’ (Charlotte) Iverson of St. Paul, MN, Gary (Nancy Jo) Iverson of Albert Lea, MN, Linda (Larry) Wilson of St. Charles, MN, Barbara (Dean) Sheely of Austin, MN, Nancy Dickerson of Owatonna, MN, Debra (Bill) Smith of Plains, MT, Michael (Sana) Iverson of Jordan, MN, Thomas (Barbara) Iverson of Austin, MN; 18 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren with one on the way; sisters, Belva (Doug) Heine of Austin, MN, Shirley Foster of Grand Meadow, MN, Myrtle Rudlong of Grand Meadow, MN; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.  She was preceded in death by her parents Harry and Alida Rudlong; her husband Kenneth Iverson in 2015; her brothers Tillman Rudlong and Lester Rudlong; and her brother-in-law Louis Foster.

Funeral services will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 25, 2018 at the Worlein Funeral Home Chapel in Austin with Pastor Dennis Tamke Officiating. Visitation will be held from 10:00-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 25, at the Worlein Funeral Home in Austin. Interment will be in Rose Creek Enterprise Cemetery, Austin, Minnesota.
