    Rhoda was a dedicated person. I can still see her up in front of our congregation coaxing our children to sing their hearts out!

  • Fergus Prestbye says:

    Rhoda was a classmate of mine at Lutheran Bible Institute in Seattle in 1965-67. We remained friends to the end, seeing each other frequently at church events and Sons of Norway events. Her constant smile was always an encouragement to me as we shared memories of her Mother, Sister and Brother, all of whom I became acquainted with over the years. As an auctioneer I handled much of sister Ruth’s Estate and as a broadcaster was very familiar with her brother David’s exceptional work in radio at PLU.
