Gene Eldon Pederson, 70, died unexpectedly at his home in Halma on Tuesday, December 26, 2006.
Funeral services were held on Saturday, December 30, at Eidsvold Lutheran Church in Halma, with Pastor Gary Halverson officiating. Interment was held at Eidsvold Cemetery in Halma.
Gene Eldon Pederson, the son of the late Peder and Caroline "Lena" (Satterlund) Pederson, was born on February 14, 1936, in Halma. He attended school and grew to manhood there, graduating from Karlstad High School in 1954.
Gene was baptized and confirmed at the Eidsvold Lutheran Church in Halma where he was a life-long member. Gene served with the U.S. Army from 1956 until 1958, serving in Nancy, France. He returned to Halma and on June 15, 1959, was united in marriage to Kathleen Twistol in The Little Brown Church in the Vale at Nashua, Iowa.
The couple has since resided at Halma. Gene helped his father operate Halma Oil & Supply, worked construction, and ran the Farmers' Creamery at Halma for six years. In 1964, he bought Halma Oil and Supply and operated it until his retirement in January of 2002. Gene served on the Halma City Council for 44 years. He was a member of the Halma-Lake Bronson American Legion Post for many years.
He is survived by his wife, Kathleen; two daughters, Tracy Pederson of St. Louis Park and Jacalyn (Paul) Boen of Karlstad; one son, Darin of Halma; two grandchildren; one brother, Lowell (Sandy Conroy) of Bayport; five sisters, Elna Rockwell of Grand Forks, N.D., Elaine (Duane) Nordling of Hallock, Lois (Maynard) Peterson of Flushing, Mich., Lela (Glendon) Spilde of Halma and Gerda (Virgil) Hams of Karlstad; in addition to many nieces, nephews, and other relatives.
