Ramona Swenson, age 83 of Harmony, Minn., passed away on Sunday, December 2, 2012, at Unity Hospital, Fridley, Minn. Ramona Elise Swenson was born on June 11, 1929, in Cresco, Iowa to Frederick and Marguerite (Seekatz) Radechel. She was baptized in Big Springs Lutheran Church, rural Harmony, and confirmed in Immanuel Lutheran Church, Cresco, Iowa. She went to country school and then was a graduate of Cresco High School in 1947. She worked as a waitress at Elms Cafe and at National Cash Dime Store. After high school she worked as a secretary in the high school, and also as a clerk and bookkeeper at Goodyear Service Store, all in Cresco. She also worked a short time at Heco in Harmony.

On June 27, 1950, she married Stanley Swenson in Cresco, Iowa. They farmed together on a farm near Fountain then in York Township for 34 years, during this time raising their family. They retired on an acreage then moved to Harmony, Minn. in 2000. Stanley passed in 2001.

Ramona prided herself in being a “farmer’s wife.” She enjoyed sewing, reading, crossword puzzels, crocheting, painting scenes, refinishing furniture, flower gardens, collecting glassware and dishes. She loved cats and had a special fondness for Elvis. She held offices in Ladies Aid in Saetersdal and taught Sunday school and Bible study.

Survivors include three daughters, Laura (Dave) Lynch of Waucoma, Iowa; Deb Swenson of Harmony, and Kari (Steve) Schroeder of Harmony, Minn.; one son Mark (Jean) Swenson of Ramsey, Minn.; 11 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother, Cyrrel, son Carlton and granddaughter, Angela.

While her family will miss her, they trust that she is now with God and all of the family that passed before her.

Memorial service was held at Saetersdal Lutheran Church, rural York Township, Minn. on Saturday, December 8, 2012, officiated by Pastor Maureen Hagen.
