Memories Timeline


  1. Detroit Lakes MN
    My sympathy to you on the death of Connie. I remember how excited my mom would get when Connie and Marcella would come to visit us in Pelican Rapids. I am the daughter of Sis Hanson Nelson, one of Connie’s cousins.

    Again please accept my sympathy.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you as you remember Connie and celebrate his life. May God’s peaceful arms wrap around you all at this time.

I have fond memories of visiting grandpa at his insurance office and him letting us “drive” around Hillsboro in his truck. I always thought he was pretty cool to let his very, very, young grandkids take a turn steering the wheel as we tootled around town.
    He will be missed.
    Love, Shannon
