Audrey Marlene Edmundson, the daughter of Donald and Vernie (Kruse) Edmundson was born February 22, 1933 in Garretson, SD. She graduated from Beaver Creek High School in 1951. Audrey married Kenneth James Eleeson that same year. After Kenneths death in December of 1967, Audrey moved between Minnesota and South Dakota, and also spent a short amount of time in Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
When Audrey settled in Sioux Falls, she met Marvin Jervik. They were united in marriage on February 16, 1980. Marvin passed away on March 30, 2000.
Audrey worked many years at Citibank until her retirement. She also worked at Bethany Lutheran Home, and most recently with H & R Block. Audrey volunteered at Avera McKennan, and also was very active in Our Saviors Lutheran Church where she was a member for over 30 years.
