Vivian Marie Gilsdorf, 71, of Alamogordo, N.M., formerly of Lanesboro, died March 25, 2003, in Alamogordo.
Vivian Marie Kulsrud was born Aug. 6, 1931, on the family farm near Lanesboro, grew up there and attended Preston schools. She graduated from Beauty College in Winona and was a beauty operator until her marriage to Ron Gilsdorf on May 2, 1953. During her husband's Army career they lived in various locations around the country. After his military retirement in 1969 they moved to Alamogordo, where he flew helicopters for four years. The couple then started Holiday Cycles, which they operated for more than 20 years. Mrs. Gilsdorf volunteered at the Toy Train Depot for several years and enjoyed making dolls and square dancing. Survivors include her husband; a daughter, Sandy (Joe) Ferguson of Colorado Springs, Colo.; a son, Mike (Sharon) of Alamogordo; five grandchildren; one great-grandchild; three brothers, George (Esther) Kulsrud, Roger (Julie) Kulsrud and Virgil (Muriel) Kulsrud; and five sisters, Vienna Kulsrud, Helen Klingsporn, Kitty (Chuck) Barry, Lois (Jack) Stachowitz and Marian (Carroll) Hoff. A sister preceded her in death. The funeral was March 29 at Sears Alamogordo Funeral Home Chapel in Alamogordo, N.M., with the Rev. Bryant Hausfield officiating. Burial was in Monte Vista Cemetery.
