Alice was an Aunt to us here , in Minnesota, when she married our Uncle, Norman Bjelland. She was a wonderful, loving women, who Norman was proud to share. She went hunting, and fishing with the family, and she loved doing those things. She was talented in her knitting, and making her 100's of quilts for others and the church, her canning and cooking. She loved her grandchildren and was proud of them. She talked about them when we would visit on the phone. I will miss Alice Bjelland, as we knew her for the last 30 plus years of our life. God Bless the memory of you, Alice Bjelland.
