Claryce Arleen Lundahl of Braham, MN passed away peacefully in her sleep at home on Feb. 9th 2015. She was 75 years old.
Claryce was born Aug. 8th 1939 at home in Maple Ridge Township, Isanti County, MN to Harvey and Ida (Siewert) Splittstoser. She was a farm girl and graduated from Braham High School in 1957. She started working at the Park Cafe in Braham at age 14 and continued in various jobs until she started her career in the Braham schools as a cook, and worked for 20+ years.
Claryce married Howard Lundahl in 1959 and they raised four boys. Howard and Claryce lived in the Twin Cities and Fargo, ND before settling on a farm in Braham, MN where they’ve lived for the last 39 years. There they raised their boys and taught them the values and importance of hard work and family.
She attended St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in Braham where she was confirmed and was an active member. Her faith led her to serve others. She did this by volunteering at Tusen Tack in Braham and serving Meals on Wheels. She also traveled to Ukraine to help at an orphanage, to Africa for a medical mission’s trip, and to Canada on a mission for bible school.
She was an un-official adopted mom to many people in need. She was the kind of person who was non-judgmental, accepting and supportive of those going through hard times. So many people called her “ma”. She was cherished and well loved by all who knew her.
She is preceded in death by her parents, her brother Robert and twin sister Corrine.
Claryce is survived by her husband, Howard; sons, Kim, Karl (Bonnie), Kendall (Tracy) and Kurt; grandchildren, Kristie (Nick) Block, Lacy (Torsten) Wolff, Laura Storkamp, Adam, Kyle, Kori, and Kami Lundahl; great-grandchildren, Adeline, Charley, Marshall, Colton, Ruger, and Milo; siblings, Ordeen (Merilyn) Splittstoser, Geraleen (Donald) Westerberg, and Glorian Hein; many nieces, nephews other relatives and many friends.
