SENTINEL TRIBUNE ON RECORD Wednesday, August 10, 2011 Page 2 OBITUARIES Clarissa Elizabeth (Sherbon) Holm A celebration of Life for Clarissa Elizabeth Holm was held at the Highland Park United Methodist, Seattle, WA August 6, 2011. Chris died unexpectedly Sunday, July 31, 2011. Chris was born in Thief River Falls, MN, and spent her childhood in Walnut Grove, MN. She lived the quintessential "Little House on the Prairie" life, growing up in the famous Olesen Store, working hard on the farm, and spending any free time playing on the banks of Plum Creek. She moved to Seattle during WWII, and worked hard at Boeing as one of the famous Rosie the Riveters. Duke Holm and Chris were married. Throughout her entire life, Chris was always in motion. She brought boundless energy to her every pursuit. She loved dancing and working in her garden, proudly tended to the largest urban garden in all of West Seattle, and perhaps beyond. She was an organist at her church for more than 60 years; was an active mem- ber of the West Seattle Woman's Democratic Club; and regularly attended TOPS meetings. Always available and generous with her time - she raised her kids, played an active role in raising their kids, and often helped take care of neighborhood kids. Chris had a famous laugh, quick wit and her smile sparkled. Perhaps most of all, she was a depend- able and loyal family woman, and will always be remembered as "Grandma Chris." Survivors include her sister, Alice Dobson; sons: Terry and Justus (Jan Hosler); and daughter, Vickie Mercer (Gary); 9 grand- children; 1 great grandson; step daughter Candace Burek (John), many nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death were her husband Duke; brothers: Royal, Levi, Robert Sherbon; sister, Ruth Lathrop; special friend, John Evans. Orval Bondhus Funeral Services for Orval Bondhus was held at Saturday, August 6, 2011 at Amo Lutheran Church, rural Storden. Burial was in the church cemetery. Online condolences may be sent via www.stephensfuneralser- Orval, 89, of Storden died Monday August 1, 2011 at Sogge Good Samaritan Care Center in Windom. Orval Le Roy Bondhus was born January 4, 1922 in Sioux City, IA to Herman and Eldora (Valen) Bondhus. He was baptized and confirmed at Amo Lutheran Church, rural Storden. He attended country school Districts #76 and #24, and graduated from Storden High School in 1940. Orval was united in marriage to Yvonne Schollian on December 5, 1947. Orval married Carolyn Sheldon on March 29, 1969. Orval was a farmer, and continued to farm up until the last years of his life. During WWII, he served his country by staying on the farm as he and his father, Herman, were deemed so proficient at farm production. Orval's favorite activity was his passion - farm- ing. Other favorite activities of Orval's were reading, tracking family and land records, following his genealogy, and corre- sponding with family members all over the U.S. and Norway. In keeping with the strong ties to his heritage, he was a longtime member of the Sons of Norway and Vestlandslag. Orval was a lifelong member of Amo Lutheran Church, active on the church council, and served as Treasurer for the Amo Lutheran Cemetery Association for over 30 years. Survivors include his wife Carolyn, Storden; children: Bruce (Karen Hall), Storden, Linda (Charles) Becker, Lincoln, NE, Barry (Jan Wilson), Storden, Dawn (Quinton) Bondhus Mueller, St. Lawrence, WI; 3 grandchildren; 6 great grandchildren; 1 niece; 2 nephews; brother-in-law Vernon Grinde, Tracy. Preceding him in death were his parents, first wife Yvonne, May 23, 1964, sister Ruth Grinde, and infant sister Eunice. 77/62 Partly cloudy.

This project represents something that is needed continually on the course, and something that can't be done effectively by simply digging up saplings and transplanting them.

Arnold Palmer Keep your head down, and we'll see you on the course!! It hardly seems possible that we should be talking of the "dog days" of August already, and I suppose it's a sign of age to comment on how the years seem to fly by, but however you cut it, we're there again. The golf course is only one small reflection of how our local economy is functioning, but it is also a sign of how we might be somewhat insulated from the larger financial problems that currently beset much of the state and nation. Our ability to attract volun- teers, and a continual local support network seem to make us very fortunate in this regard. Certainly Rolling Hills has seen its ups and downs, but we are very fortu- nate to be able to continue operating at a time when many similar venues are struggling, at best. Along these same lines, the board is currently initiating a campaign to secure and plant new trees at the course. There will be a signup sheet avail- able in the clubhouse for donations toward this project, or you may simply contact a board member to make pledg- Area news briefs Fulda Free Press - Pastor Rachel Wrenn joined the staff of Prairie Star Ministries on June 30.
