Irma Cecelia Rasmussen, the eldest child of Carl and Anna (Nelson) Rasmussen, was born on a farm near Wakonda, SD on June 15, 1917. She was a lifelong resident of Wakonda, where she grew up and attended school through the 8th grade when her mother died and she left school to help her father and grandmother take care of her two younger sisters Ardene and Norma Jean and brothers Clayton and Leon.

On September 14th, 1946, she married Jorgen Hoeg in Wakonda. Irma was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was a lifelong member of First Lutheran Church, Wakonda and was in one of the first confirmation classes there. She was a homemaker most of her life and enjoyed gardening, cooking, sewing, reading, taking care of her many houseplants and spending time with family. She made the best Danish meatballs ever. In 1975 when Jorgen retired they moved to the Wakonda Apartments. She was the resident manager there until 2004, when at the age of 87, due to failing health; she was forced to move to Fargo, ND to live with her son. Late in 2004 she moved to the Golden Living Center in Moorhead, MN where she spent her last years making many new friends.
