Agnes Liudahl

July 03, 1919 - October 02, 2020


Agnes Liudahl, age 101, peacefully went home to be with our Lord on Friday, October 2, 2020, as her dear friend, Jen Swenson, was holding Agnes’ hand while talking on the telephone to Agnes’ sister, Carolyn, who lives in Texas.

As written by Agnes:

Agnes Robertsdahl Liudahl was born July 3, 1919, to Eddie and Christine Robertsdahl on a farm near Christine, ND. She was baptized and confirmed in the North Pleasant Church rural Hickson, ND. She had been an active member of Norman Lutheran Church, rural Kindred, since 1971.

Agnes graduated from Pleasant Consolidated School rural Walcott, ND and then went on to further her education at Interstate Business College and North Dakota State School of Science. She worked in various jobs: Selective Service Office in Wahpeton, West Fargo High School, Burroughs Corporation and West Fargo State Bank. She was president for three years of the Bethany Auxiliary, was a Sunday School teacher, superintendent and wedding coordinator for many years at Faith Lutheran Church in West Fargo. She was also a den mother and 4-H leader. She did volunteer work at Bethany Homes and the Sons of Norway.

Agnes and Melford Gylland were married April 1943; he passed away in 1955. Two children were born to this marriage: Karen (1946-1973) and John Paul (1947-1958).

Agnes and Norman Liudahl were married February 12, 1971. They lived on a farm near Davenport, ND where they farmed until retirement. In 1996 they left the farm and moved to West Fargo and then in 2007 they moved to Sheyenne Crossings in West Fargo. Norman passed away August 14, 2009.

Agnes was preceded in death by her parents Eddie and Christine Robertsdahl; husband Melford Gylland and children Karen Bisgrove and John Paul Gylland; husband Norman Liudahl; brothers Clarence and Ellsworth and sisters Edith Nord and Arleen Funseth; brothers-in-law Carlott Funseth, DeRoyal Nord, Hilbert Baumgarten and Wally Freeman and sister-in-law Adeline Robertsdahl; special friend Orlan Swenson; and nieces and nephews.

A special thanks to Agnes’ extended family Orlan and Elaine Swenson, Derek and Jen Swenson, Karl, Jorgen, Kylan and Asher for all their help and support and kindness shown during the years since 1971.

    Agnes and Norman were wonderful friends and neighbors. We got to know them in 1973 and have visited them many times and played many game’s over the years. She will be missed. May God give her peace.

    I grew up near Norman & Agnes, they were great neighbors to us kids!! I would ride my bike over to borrow a cup of sugar or flour, help with chores, play on the piano and play games with them. I have tried to visit Agnes every time I came home. Sending prayers and sympathy to all of her friends and family!!!

  4. Cary Rummel says:

    I met Agnes at Sheyenne Crossings as I’m an employee with Eventide. She was an inspiration and a friend to me in the most difficult time of my life, when my son was battling brain cancer. Unfortunately she dealt with the same heartache in her life as I, also losing her son. She will forever be someone of great strength and character to me. My heart goes out to Agnes’ family and friends. Heaven just gained a special lady.

  5. Janelle Muscha says:

    God Bless Agnes and God Bless the Swenson family who brought Agnes so much joy when I worked at Sheyenne Crossings.

    It was good to hear that Agnes had lived a fulfilling life after our family contacts had discontinued. We lived next door to the Gyllands in Wahpeton on 9th ST until 1951. Then moved to Bismarck. Later, learning that their family was going to Star Lake, MN for vacation where, coincidently, my Dad had already made lakeside reservations during 1955, we planned to get together. They joined us for supper while there where, sadly, Mel passed away. Tragically, John Paul passed away a few years later and then Karen at a very young age. Agnes had more heart breaks than most people can handle yet she persevered and continued living a fulfilling life. May she rest in Peace.

    I knew Agnes & Norman when I was the Activity Director at Sheyenne Crossings. They were one of my favorite couples! Agnes was always so busy & full of life! I will always remember her smile and laugh! She knew so much grief in her life, however she never let sorrow take her down. She found strength in her faith. She had such a wonderful life. I am blessed to have known her. Love you Gilly!!

  8. Donna Dahlgren says:

    Agnes was a beautiful, kind, loving and Christian lady who looked to our Lord for comfort and peace
    in her many sorrows. She truly lived her life to His glory. My parents were good friends of Agnes and Melford, and two of my uncles were married to Melford’s sisters. I will miss her big smile and hugs. God bless and
    welcome an angel.

  9. Judy, Warren & Tanya Ausk says:

    Agnes, I will truly miss making Rosette’s for you ever other week.    
    It was worth seeing your smile and hearing how much you loved them.
    We will all truly miss you, but so Happy your with Norman and all your love ones. We Love You and Will Miss You!!!

    Agnes Liudahl was such a special and kind lady! I first met her and Norman in Norway and got to visit with them many times while Studying at Concordia College and at ASU in Arizona! And later, they came to Norway to my weeding! Such a nice wedding-present! I have so many good memories from Agnes, and she was often on my mind. My heart goes out to her family and friends – with love from Norway . Thank you so much Jen Swenson for letting me know about Agnes passing away.
