RE: Mary Ellestad/Irene
There is another Irene Ellestad on who was married to Vernon Ellestad, **see memorial #43498605**, which I believe it the one you are referring to. I have nothing to do with this Irene.

I am distantly related to the Wilbert "Bill" Ellestad, Findagrave memorial #29952969, who married Irene Pirkl and they had a daughter Mary, born 1942, who married Elmer Sowatzke. Irene Pirkl Ellestad doesn't even have a memorial on; she is only mentioned in her daughters obituary. **see below**
Mary Sowatzke, age 68, of Madison, passed away on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2011, at Skaalen Nursing Home.
She was born on Nov. 11, 1942, in Madison, the daughter of Wilbert and Irene (Pirkl) Ellestad.

I found John, Mathea O, Albert and Ole C in one group. Do you need Ole? I could not find Martha.

I found Norman in the front row near the sign along with Harry and Edward( brothers probably)
do you need them??
Also there is a Charles(1872-1947) and Alice buried there if you need.

Mary Ellestad/Irene
Can you tell me why it says the children listed are not correct on the memorial for Irene Viskoe? memorial #43498605. I am doing family research for Irene and was wondering if you knew if she was married to Wilbert Ellestad at some point. Thank you. Patty Betlach Russell
