Roma Jane Steffen of Braham, MN passed away on April 27th at Fairview Lakes Hospital in Wyoming, MN. She was 75 years old.

Roma was born on April 10th 1936 in Brookings County, South Dakota to Harold and Ruby Fulmer. She grew up on the family farm with her sisters. She attended country school and graduated High School in 1954. She married William Steffen on September 14th 1954. From this union four children were born. The couple spent the early years of their marriage in West Concord, MN before buying River Bend Farm near Braham in 1962.

Roma worked hard for her entire life, twenty years at Dahlman’s in Braham, and twenty-one years for H&R Block.

She enjoyed gardening, bird-watching, and cooking for loved ones. She created beautiful crocheted afghans, decorated cakes, and had many collections (Avon, dishes, figurines). She loved going to auctions and bargain hunting at rummage sales.

Roma was generous with her time, affection and resources, hosting family gatherings for holidays, and attending parties with her family. Roma was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be truly missed by all that knew and loved her.

    My deepest sympathies to Roma’s family and friends. Back in my teenage years, I babysat for Roma’s children. Roma was a kind, sweet person.

    My sympathies on your great loss! I appreciate so much seeing this obituary.
    Roma is my dad’s 2nd cousin – he’s Lyle Elverud.
    I do wish we could have met … we are a few miles north of Anoka.
