I was very sorry to learn of Edla's death. She was such a sweet person and very kind. I remember visiting their farm when I was young as I often stayed with an aunt and uncle who were neighbors. Several of my relatives are buried in the Trondhjem church cemetery near Volin, and we were always invited to the Aune's after the funerals for something to eat. Evelyn Kamback

I want to extend my condolences to your family for Edla. Edla was a neighbor of my parents, Luvern and Eilene Swensen and she was a 4-H leader to me. I remember going to Art and Edla's house on occasion with my parents. She had a great outlook on life and a positive way about her. I spoke with her on the phone years later. She still had the same great way about her. I want to thank you for her influence on me as a young person and I wish her the best in eternal life. Robin Swensen Nashville, TN

Our condolences to all of the family. It was enjoyable having a cup of coffee with Edla and listening to the history of the area. She was a very intelligent, warm hearted lady and will be missed.
