Louellen Iverson

March 25, 1947 — March 13, 2024

Louellen Ann (Anderson) Iverson was born March 25, 1947, in Bismarck, ND, to Telford and Marie (Klamm) Anderson. She grew up on the farm near Watford City, ND, and was the much-loved baby sister to her three older brothers. Louellen passed away March 13, 2024. 

Louellen graduated from Dickinson State College in 1970, with a degree in Elementary Education and received a Master’s in the Arts of Teaching from Lewis and Clark College, Portland, OR, in 1981. Lou taught grade school in Williston, ND, from 1976-84, and was director of the gifted program, grades 1-6, from 1984-87. 

Lou was spontaneous and fearless, but she began the adventure of her life when she married Steven Iverson in 1988. His job with the US State Department took them first to East African, then to Australia, then to the East Coast of the United States. They retired to Redmond, Oregon in 2002. Even after her beloved Steve passed away in 2010, Lou continued her travels and adventures with family and friends. Lou moved to Bismarck, ND in August 2023, to be closer to her family. 

Lou had a contagious joy and was eternally positive. She left a deep and lasting impression on everyone she met. She was a talented quilter, baker, and decorator. Lou loved Jesus from childhood and leaned on her Savior throughout her life. She was involved in many activities at her church in Redmond. 

Lou will be deeply missed by her brothers, Merton Anderson and CJ “Skip” (Sharon) Anderson; her nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews; and by her in-laws and her friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Steven Iverson; her parents, Telford and Marie Anderson; her brother, Jerome Anderson; her sisters-in-law, Pat, Ruby, and Karen; and by her in-laws, Wallace and Eva Lou (Erickson) Iverson.

A funeral service for Louellen Iverson will be held Friday, March 22, 2 p.m. at Crosspoint Church, Watford City, ND. Luncheon to follow at the church.
