Born in Lodi Township

Mrs. Minnie Huseby Sorflaten was born of parents Arnie Huseby and Synneva Hukee in Mower County, Minnesota on May 19, 1878. She was baptized into the Christian faith on June 10, 1878 by Rev. B.B. Gjeldaker, pastor of the Little Cedar Lutheran Church. She was confirmed in 1892 by Rev. J.M. Eggen, and united in marriage to Mr. John Sorflaten on October 5, 1895. This union was blessed with thirteen children of whom seven survive.

The surviving children are: Alvin, of Ellicott City, Maryland; Stella, Mrs. R.A. Ewing of Baltimore, Maryland; Orville of Queenstown, Maryland; Helen, Mrs. John Tischer, of Chicago, Illinois; Richard of Albert Lea, Minnesota; Vernon, of Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Julius of Austin. In addition to the seven children that survive, she is survived by two brothers, Bennie J. Huseby and Louis A. Huseby of Adams; and three sisters, Mrs. Christena Anderson, Mrs. John Boyum, and Mrs. Andrew Slindee, all of Adams. There are fifteen grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.

Mr. and Mrs. Sorflaten owned and operated a farm in Clayton Township for many years. In 1920 the family moved to Adams which has been the family home ever since. Mr. Sorflaten passed away on October 30, 1950, and Mrs. Sorflaten continued to make her home in Adams with occasional visits being made with her children. Because of declining health, she went to make her home with her son Alvin in Ellicott City, Maryland in September of 1955, and it was there that she passed away on Saturday, April 13, thirty-six days short of her 79th birthday.

Mrs. Sorflaten was a member of the Little Cedar Lutheran Church and the Ladies' Aid and Mission Circle 9. In May of 1953 she was awarded the Life Membership pin in The Women's Missionary Federation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. Funeral services were held at the Little Cedar Lutheran Church, M.L. Witte, pastor, on Thursday, April 18. Burial was in the family lot of the Little Cedar Cemetery. Pallbearers were Lloyd Boyum, Arthur Boyum, Byron Huseby, Aaron Huseby, Oscar Bergene, and Edwin Bergene. Mission Circle 9 served lunch to relatives and friends following the funeral.
