Monna was born on August 12, 1928; the third of 13 children born to Milo and Nellie Birkholm Wulf at their home in Newport, MN.
Monna was united in marriage to Truman John Nestrud on March 28, 1945. They lived in several homes in Wisconsin and Minnesota, but spent most of their married life in St. Croix Beach and then Grasston, MN. Since Truman’s death in 1986 Monna has resided in Mora, MN.
Monna is survived by her daughters, Sandy Ehrhardt, Judi Christy (and significant other Greg Benson), Carol (Arlen) Ellingson, Diane (Pat) Krause, Laurie (Dan) Torgeson, Linda (Jim) Hosley, Karen (Ray) Lefto, sons, Ken (Cindy), Steve (Krystal), Ron (Helen), daughters-in-law, Peggy Nestrud Mills and Linda Nestrud, and son-in-law Tim Briggs.
Monna was preceded in death by her husband, Truman, daughter Eileen and granddaughter Maureen Briggs, sons Mick and Roger, sons in law Ken Ehrhardt and Roger Christy, daughter-in-law Janyce Nestrud and many other family members and friends.
Monna loved spending time with her family, especially her 36 grandchildren, 32 great grandchildren & 17 great-great grandchildren.
Her legacy is her gentle spirit, quiet faith, her ability to feed a dozen people with a pound of hamburger, and her delicious baked goods.
We will miss her greatly but are happy she is finally at home and at peace.
