Aberdeen - Glenn Pierson, formerly of Columbia, S.D., died Sept. 15, 2006, in Aberdeen. Glenn was born Aug. 14, 1921, in Claremont, S.D., to Ray and Signe (Carlson) Pierson. As a youth, Glenn worked on the family farm. After graduating from Groton High School, he was employed for a time in Chicago, Ill. His deep family ties drew him back to the family farm near Columbia and farming became his life-long career. When he finally retired the tractor, he started a small trucking business that filled his days. He married Rosalinn Torigian in 1944. Together they raised two daughters and two sons, Pat (Pierson) Kahle, Glenda (Pierson) Frese, Lex Pierson, and Gordon Pierson. Glenn had four grandchildren, Sunday, Christy, Matthew, and Nicole; and three great-grandchildren, Justi, Dino, and Mia. He is also survived by sister, Elva (Orville) Rumrey; daughter-in-law, Brenda Pierson (Lex); and sons-in-law, Barry Kahle and Don Frese. Glenn was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church. He is preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Harley; and wife of 45 years, Rosalinn. Glenn was a fair, play-by-the-rules, dedicated worker; meeting the challenges of everyday living with quick wit and an undying sense of humor. He was known for saying "I'm out standing in my field." The family asks that those who knew him remember him fondly as a wonderful man, loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and husband. Memorials may be made to Prince of Peace Care Center in Ellendale, N.D., or American Cancer Society. Memorial services for all family members will be held at Schriver's Memorial Mortuary & Crematory in Aberdeen on Saturday, Sept. 23, at 11 a.m. A celebration of life will held at the Aberdeen Senior Center from 2-4 p.m. that afternoon for friends and family.
