Betty Eastvold

Betty was born on January 11, 1951 in Northwood, ND to Enoch and Madeline Wasness Thorsgard. After High School she attended Golden Valley Lutheran College where she met Lonney Eastvold. They were married on August 18, 1969 and farmed near Hartland, MN and Spring Grove, MN until the spring of 2010, when they moved to a farm near Northwood.
Words cannot describe the love, appreciation, respect and thankfulness felt by her family for her.
In the last weeks Betty wrote many of her thoughts. In these writings she described her feelings about her life as a wife and mother. "I get overwhelmed with JOY and THANKS when I stop to ponder the family God has given Lonney and me. The character in each child God specially made for us is so unique! And when you put them all together in one family - WOW-PRAISE GOD from whom all blessings flow. I Love them all so much.
Betty was preceded in death by an infant son, Knut and a brother, Luke. She is survived by her husband Lonney, and children, Nissa, Luke, Glori, Andrew, Maria, Anna, Abigail, Leif, and Johannes; Parents, Enoch and Madeline Thorsgard; Siblings, Carol (Harold) Luecke, Grady (Marilyn) Thorsgard, John (Dona) Thorsgard and Ruth (Bob) Draxton, all of Northwood; and many nieces and nephews.

Lonny and family, I was so surprised when my brother called and told me of Betty's passing. I am so sorry. I know your beautiful family will help to ease the pain of her passing. Life certainly is tough sometimes. Thank goodness we have the Lord to lead us through.

Lonnie and family, My deepest sympathy to all of you. I wanted so badly to come with Jim and Julie out for the funeral but we have a busy weekend with showers for Jacob and Val, and decided I needed my rest to enjoy them My thoughts and prayers are certainly with you, Lonnie, and all of your family. Also with Betty's parents, as I'm sure they feel they should not have outlived her. May God's peace and love surround you. I will be in touch another time. Hugs to you all. Ardelle
