I was able to get five more obits for this family from the Rochester library today. The obit for Amanda Aaby Larson shows that she married Dennis Larson on 5/17/1940 in Cresco IA, and that she was survived by "her husband; two daughters, Mrs. Harlin (Betty Ann) Ackman of Oronoco, and Mrs. William (Darlene) Anderson of Rochester; seven grandchildren; four brothers, Hilman, Richard, Reuben and John, all of Rochester; four sisters, Mrs. Willis (Ellen) Lubahn of Oronoco. Mrs. Chris (Anna) Brenengen of La Crosse, Wis. Mrs. Harry (Rikka) Hanson of New Ulm, and Mrs. Louella Porter of Mantorville; and her mother, Mrs. Ella Braaten of Rochester. She was preceded in death by her father."
The obit for Dennis Larson shows that he was survived by "two daughters, Mrs. Harlin (Bettyann) Ackman of Oronoco and Mrs. William (Darlene) Anderson of Rochester; six grandsons and one granddaughter; six great-grandchildren; two sisters, Mrs. Myra Schuck of Byron and Mrs. Bernice Brummond of Wabasha and a brother, Lloyd Larson of Rochester. He was preceded in death by three brothers and one sister."
The obit for David R. Braaten shows that he was born in Salem Township MN, and married Jane Russel in 1951 in Florda, although they were later divorced - that said, we may be able to match him to her by their children. He was survived by "four sons, David, James and Thomas of Minneapolis, and Joel of Rapid City, S.D.; one grandson; three brothers, Hilman, John and Rueben, all of Rochester; one sister, Mrs. Willis (Ellen) Lubahn of Oronoco; three step-sisters, Mrs. Harry (Rikka) Hanson of Hanska, Minn., Mrs. Chris (Anna) Brenengen of La Crosse, and Mrs. Le Roy (Luella) Porter of Mantorville. One brother and one sister preceded him in death."
The obit for Lester Olson shows that he was born in Olmsted county MN and died in Minnetonka MN, and married Luella Braaten 4/1/1931 in Olmsted county but they divorced in 1956. He was survived by "five daughters, Mrs. Gene (Phyllis) Jensen of Anchorage, Alaska, Mrs. William (Harriet) Jester of Helena, Mont., Mrs. John (Shirley) Mahon of Groton, Conn., Mrs. Marlene Boutelle of Eyota, and Mrs. Mike (Lois) Arndt of Byron; a son, Duane of Bay Springs, Miss.; his mother, Mrs. Gilbert (Mary) Olson of rural Byron; 20 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; a brother, Granville Olson of Byron; and a sister, Mrs. Robert (Maxine) Johnson of Minneapolis. He was preceded in death by a son, two daughters, a grandson, and two brothers."
The obit for Esther Broten shows that she married Walter Broten Sr in 1932 and later divorced, and her "Surviving children include: Walter Jr., of Kasson; Mrs. John Cooley of Waterloo, Iowa; Harry of Rochester; Stanley of Waterloo; Mrs. Dennis Nelson of Rochester; Richard of Rochester, and Miss Joyce Broten, address not listed. In addition to 16 grandchildren, she also is survived by one sister, Mrs. Ed Muske of Pine Island, and two brothers, Ernest Wacker of St. Paul and Fred of Rochester."
