Edna Lila Iverson was born on February 27, 1927, in Thief River Falls, MN, the daughter of Iver and Anna (Berg) Iverson.  She was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith in St. Pauli Lutheran Church, rural Thief River Falls.  She attended elementary school at Cheerville School in Rocksbury Township.  She went to St. Hilaire High School for three years, and when that school closed, she graduated from Lincoln High School in Thief River Falls.  In 1945, she attended a teacher’s training class in Thief River Falls and taught for five years in the rural schools of Pennington County.

In 1949, Edna was united in marriage to her lifelong friend Eugene Rondorf.  They farmed in Rocksbury Township in Pennington County all their married life.  To this union, five children were born: Dennis, Neil, LouAnn, Wallace, and Jim.  In 1971, Edna received her B.S. degree from Bemidji State University and taught in Franklin Middle School in Thief River Falls until retirement in 1988.  She then worked at the public library as a volunteer for eight years.

Edna was a member of St. Pauli Lutheran Church and served on various church offices and taught Sunday School.  She also served on the board of the Public Library and the Heritage Center.  Edna’s favorite thing was being with Eugene and their children.  She loved her roses, bluebirds, playing cards, doing puzzles, reading, and going out to lunch with friends.

Survivors include five children: Dennis Rondorf, Husum, WA; Neil (Cheryl) Rondorf, Virginia Beach, VA; Louann (Michael) Klym, Wilsonville, OR; Wallace (Sherry) Rondorf, Thief River Falls, MN; and James (Roxane) Rondorf, Thief River Falls, MN; 10 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren; one sister, Gail (Gary) Fitch, Brainard, MN; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousin, and friends.
