Lillian Iverson

d. September 7, 2023

Minneapolis, MN

Lillian Margaret  Langoien Lucker Iverson. 1932-2023.

Her time has passed.  My mom lost her lengthy battle with dementia on Thursday – a week shy of her ninety-first year. A 1950 graduate of Minneapolis South High School and a naval reservist WAVE, she then had a colorful career as an office administrator in a variety of fields; public relations, beauty supplies, lumber, law, and human resources.  She chose her own path, and walked it with stylish grace for nine decades.

It was one hell of a good run.

 

Survived by son, Mark, and beloved daughter-in-law, Amy, as well as grandchildren, Lindsay Herr, Willi Lucker, and Sam Lucker, and great-grandson Felix.  Also survived by nephews, Richard (Mary) Espeland, David (Susan) Espeland, and Dale (Cris) Espeland. Lillian loved dogs and is also survived by her devoted canine companion of twelve years, Kitzy.

 

She chose partners well and outlived two uniquely devoted husbands, Willi Lucker, and Gary Iverson.  Her path in life was uniquely hers, and wound through a variety of locales and experiences (most) of which she was happy to share, with a dry and uncompromising wit.

 

Also preceded in death by sister, Inger Espeland, father, Odd Langoien, and mother, Randi Langoien; a family not large, but of the utmost quality and 100-percent Norwegian good humor.

Special thanks to the caring staff at Champlin Shores in Champlin, Minnesota – especially the memory care team.  Lillian was also cared for wonderfully at the end by David and Jean of Gentiva Hospice.  Memorials preferred to the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (https://mnovarian.org/ ) or the Minneapolis South High Foundation  (https://www.southhighfoundation.org/

 

Services will be held Thursday, September 14, 11:00 A.M. at the BRADSHAW, 3131 Minnehaha Avenue South, with visitation starting at 9:30 A.M. Burial Lakewood Cemetery.

 

All are welcome to come attend this celebration of her life. If you can’t make the moment, raise a toast to Lillian – straight whiskey, on the rocks. Of course.
