Eunice LaVae Persson, 84, of Minneapolis, MN, Formerly of Oakland NE

Eunice LaVae Persson was born to George and Emelia (Willnard) Moseman on Jan. 27, 1934 in Oakland, Nebraska. She passed away May 11th in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the age of 84 years.

Eunice lived most of her life in Oakland, Nebraska where she graduated from high school in 1951. She graduated from nursing school in 1956 and worked as a nurse at Oakland Memorial Hospital, Oakland Heights Nursing Home and St. Francis Hospital in West Point, Nebraska as an LPN. On April 10, 1959 she and Lloyd Persson were married and made their home in Oakland. They had 3 children – Carl, Joanie and Jim. Jim married Michelle Sloma and now live in Omaha, Nebraska and has 3 children – Ashley, Andrew and Alex Persson. Joanie married Stephen Johnson of Minneapolis and has 2 children- Emelia and Alexander Johnson. Their son Carl resides in Rockford, Minnesota. Eunice spent most of her life in Oakland, but after the death of her husband, she moved to Minneapolis to stay with her daughter Joanie. Eunice was a lover of nature and loved to spend time sitting in the garden, watching the birds and helping her daughter decide what and where to plant! She loved to be with her grandchildren and sitting in her chair reading a good book. Eunice was a gentle soul who touched many lives. She will be greatly missed.

She is preceded in death by her husband Lloyd Persson, her parents George and Emelia Moseman, and her siblings Kermit Moseman, Bernice Nielsen and Erwin Moseman.

The family appreciates and is so thankful for the extraordinary outpouring of sympathy received since their mother’s death but per their mother’s request, a private graveside service for family only will be held at a later date.



 Private family services will be held
