Thanks bigguy.
I'm curious about the protocol for posting obituaries. Is there a copyright problem or such with posting the original obit and or photo? The published obits tend to be unavailable from the Forum eventually. I have done a couple where I paraphrased the original obit and added some personal memories and once in a while I have a different photo to post.
Also; What is the best way to reply to a very old post from the archives so it becomes current?

You best ask Torggy about the guidelines, as there was a problem with some at one time. I just noticed yesterday that obits from past have disappeared, that is too bad. If that is the case there isn't much sense I guess in posting an obit link.

When posting anything from another source try to post the first few lines then the web address.

Just post on any topic you want and then that topic will be scrolled to the top of the topic list.

I had the privilege of meeting this beautiful lady one time when Torggy was home, we met at the Original "Lighthouse Restaurant". So sad to see of her passing, RIP, and my heartfelt sympathy to her family.

Can't find an obit, but word is that Olaf Gunderson has passed away. Arguably the best athlete to come out of Clover Valley.

Shoreboy caught this one:
She and her husband ran the Eiken Mink farm on McQuade Road by the Old North Shore Road. She is the mother of several daughters that went to CV.

Thanks again to Shoreboy for finding this:

One of Minnesotaís greatest small college football players died on St. Patrickís Day. And if youíre now waiting for the ethnic connection, it will not be forthcoming.
Ole Gunderson was 100 percent Norwegian. And he admitted one reason he chose to attend St. Olaf was that he had the same first name as the school, named in the honor of Olaf II, the king and patron saint of Norway early in the 11th century.
Gunderson came from Clover Valley, an unincorporated township north of Duluth, and played eight-man football in high school. He enrolled at St. Olaf in the fall of 1968. Freshmen were not eligible for varsity competition.
Mike Schmiesing was the lead back that season in coach Tom Porterís wing-T and was drafted in the seventh round by Philadelphia. The Eagles had 19 choices (in 17 rounds) and Schmiesing was among 12 draftees who didnít make the team.
Gunderson ran 49 yards for a touchdown on his first carry in 1969 and Porter had his replacement for Schmiesing.
St. Olaf was near the end of a quarter-century spent in the Midwest Conference. The Oles had left the MIAC in 1950 and returned in 1975. Thus, the MIAC powers ó St. Johnís and Concordia, at that time ó were not on the schedule. The top of the Midwest was comparable to the rest of the MIAC back then.
Gunderson wasnít the biggest or the fastest of running backs, blessed instead with great balance and durability. Defenses came after Ole fiercely, and he would continue to go at opponents 30 times a game in Porterís run, then-run-again offense.
The stats on St. Olafís website have credited Gunderson with 608 carries for 3,899 yards. That makes him the Olesí all-time leading rusher, but his teammates from 1969 to í71 say heís being shortchanged ó that it actually was 639 carries for 4,060 yards, good for 70 touchdowns.
St. Olaf was 25-2 in Gundersonís three seasons. He spent training camp with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, was cut, came back to Minnesota and raised a family ó including Shane, an All-America baseball player for the Gophers.
Gunderson had been dealing with cancer and died at 68 at his home in Morristown, Minn.

It is with great sadness that I post this obituary. Carole has been a long time poster to this page and very active in the Clover Valley community. Her pictures and commentary will be missed.
