Opal Una Turbenson, age 100, of Spring Valley, passed away Sunday afternoon, January 18, 2015, at the Spring Valley Care Center.

Opal was born to Emil and Anna (Gullickson) Dugstad on November 11, 1914, in Bristol, S.D. She graduated from Mankato High School in 1932. While spending the summer near Ostrander with her Gullickson grandparents, she met Hiram Turbenson at Luther League in church. They were married on April 15, 1934, in Cresco, Iowa, at the Lutheran church and were happily married for 65 years. They lived on a farm south of Spring Valley until 1972 when they moved into Spring Valley and built a house there. Hiram passed away in 1999. Opal continued to live in their home until she moved into the Spring Valley Care Center in 2010. She recently celebrated her 100th birthday with her family and friends.

Opal loved to sing and did so for many years at Bloomfield Lutheran Church in rural Ostrander. She also enjoyed playing the organ, gardening, reading and doing crossword puzzles. She was a great cook and made many huge meals on the farm during harvest time. She loved her coffee and especially liked going to the Branding Iron for dinner in her later years.

Opal is lovingly remembered by her three sons: Jim (Carol) of Golden Valley, Minn., Steve (Sue) of Andover Minn., and Ted (Jane) of Chino Valley, Ariz.; seven grandchildren: Kristen Turbenson, Tom (Suzanne) Turbenson, David (Gail) Turbenson, Amy (David) Vogel, Lori Turbenson, Tyler Turbenson and Mitchell Turbenson; and eight great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Hiram; one grandson, Erik; her parents; one brother, Richard; and one sister, Ruby.

The funeral was held 1 p.m., Saturday, January 24, 2015, at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Spring Valley with Rev. James Scaife officiating. Burial took place in the Bloomfield Lutheran Cemetery. Friends called at the church on Saturday from noon until the time of service.
