Marlene Ann Kluver

Marlene Ann Kluver was born on May 16, 1947 in Alexandria, MN to Glenn and Jean (Carlson) Wilson. She attended and graduated from Glenwood High School in 1965. 

On December 18, 1965, Marlene was united in marriage to Dale Kluver. To this union two children were born: Jennifer and Steven. The couple lived in Alexandria until 1968, when they moved to Forada, MN. After she had raised her children, Marlene went to work at H & R Block as a tax preparer and at Torgy’s on the Lake until her retirement. Marlene’s biggest joy in life was her family, especially the time she got to spend with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her favorite memories were Sunday breakfasts at the Muddy Boot with her family and her breakfast of choice, the baby boot with one egg and toasted toast. 

Marlene was a member of several community groups over the years including the ladies’ fire department auxiliary. She spent her free time coloring, knitting, golfing and enjoyed watching and feeding her birds and squirrels most of all. 

Marlene died on Sunday, December 13, 2020 at St. Cloud Hospital at the age of 73 years. She is survived by her son: Steven (Jo) Kluver; her daughter/granddaughter: Kayla (Jonathon) Reigstad; grandchildren:Ethan (Tess) Favor-Jackson, Wyatt, and Savana Kluver; great grandchildren: Ellarie and Lennen Reigstad and Lewis, Franklin, and Charlotte Favor-Jackson; and special family friend: Chad Stoinski. 

She is preceded in death by her husband: Dale Kluver; her parents: Glenn and Jean Wilson; her daughter: Jennifer Kluver; her brother: Bobby Wilson; her sister: Valerie (Bill) Winters; and her in-laws: Edna and Harlan Kluver. 

Visitation will be held on Saturday, December 19, 2020, 2:00 – 4:00 PM at the Anderson Funeral Home with a prayer service at 4:00 PM. A celebration of Marlene’s life will be held later in the spring.
