Posted in Lanesboro Obituaries

Junice Rein Stork Severson, age 98, passed away peacefully at the Gunderson Harmony Care Center on November 7, 2014.

Junice Myrle Rein was born June 1, 1916 to John and Geneva (Lindelien) Rein on the family farm in Highland township, rural Lanesboro, Minn. She attended Elstad country school and graduated from Lanesboro High School in 1934. She then graduated from Preston Normal Teacher Training School the following year and then taught at Elstad country school. On November 28, 1936 she married William Beverly Stork of Harmony, Minn. They made their home on the Stork family farm one mile north of Harmony. There were born eight Stork children; Colleen, Patricia, Janet, Kathryn, William, Julie, Edwin and Micheal. While on the farm Junice raised her children, helped with the farm chores, sewed the kids’ clothes, grew a huge garden, canned fruits and vegetables and entertained family and friends tirelessly. In 1957, due to ill health of her husband, they moved into Harmony, where she worked for Ruth Benson’s “Five and Dime” and was one of the first employees of HECO, sewing ice fishing shelters and pop-up campers until her retirement.

William Beverly Stork died October 14, 1961. On September 16, 1971, Junice married Orville Severson of Harmony, Minn. With that union Junice acquired two step-sons, Tom and Rob Severson and their families, who she grew to love deeply. Orville passed away April 26, 1983.

Junice got great pleasure from tending to her flower gardens, reading books, watching sports of all kinds, being especially supportive of the Vikings, and playing cards, especially whist. Her greatest joy though was family gatherings, whether immediate or extended families.

Junice is survived by her eight children: Colleen Arch of Davie, Fla., Patricia Stork of Golden Valley, Minn., Janet (Jay) Fedder of Wickenberg, Ariz., Kathryn (Roger) Hollman of Lake City, Minn., William B. (Bill) Stork, Jr. of Urbandale, Iowa, Julie (Jim) Mosier of Littleton, Colo., Edwin Stork of Harmony, Minn. and Micheal (Mick) Stork of Caledonia, Minn.; two stepsons: Tom (Mary Ann) Severson of Winona, Minn. and Robert (Judy) Severson of Deephaven, Minn.; twelve grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren, six step grandchildren and four great-step grandchildren; a sister, Elaine Moe Stavast of Ft. Collins, Colo., and a sister-in-law, Evelyn Rein of Preston, Minn. She was preceded in death by her husbands, William Beverly S .....
