Clifford Iverson, 94
Clifford Deloid Iverson, 94, died Friday, March 14, 2014 at Knute Nelson in Alexandria.
Cliff was born January 8, 1920 near Brooten in Kandiyohi County, the son of Knute and Dathilda (Olson) Iverson. He attended school through the eighth grade and then helped various farmers in the area.
Cliff met Grace Glysen, his future wife, in Glenwood in the spring of 1942. They were united in marriage on October 31, 1942 in Alexandria. They lived on a farm by Lowry and then bought a home in 1948 in Alexandria where they raised their two children, Carol and Vernon.
Cliff owned his own auto mechanic shop for many years in Alexandria until he retired in 1982 at the age of 62. He continued to work on small engines like lawn mowers and snow blowers. Since he was a "jack of all trades," he fixed things around the house for Grace and his children. He was an honest, hardworking and good husband and dad. He will be missed by those who knew him.
He is survived by his loving wife of 71 years, Grace Iverson of Alexandria; daughter, Carol (Fred) Stueve of St. Cloud; son, Vernon (Mavis) Iverson of Alexandria; grandchildren, Scott (Sarah) Stueve of St. Cloud, Susan Stueve of St. Cloud, Roxanne (Scott) Riesselman of Alexandria and Chad (Crystal) Iverson of Alexandria; seven great-grandchildren; sisters, Doris (Harris) Gjerdingen of Willmar, Adeline Suter of Willmar, and Shirley Jacobson of Coon Rapids; many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Amy Hill; and brothers, Ivel Iverson and Oleander Iverson.
A funeral service was held Wednesday, March 19 at Anderson Funeral Home Chapel. Interment was at Rose Hill Cemetery near Holmes City. Casket bearers were Gary Glysen, Chad Iverson, Scott Stueve, Jay Stueve, Gage Riesselman and Wyatt Riesselman.
