Iona Mae Ericksen, 77, of Annandale, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 13, 2014, at the Park Place Memory Care Cottage, at the Annandale Care Center.

A memorial service is planned at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 26, at the Annandale Care Center Chapel. 

She is survived by her children and their families, Lynn Anderson (Tronn), Patty Fischer (Tim), Carol Marple (Jeff), and Fritz (Jenny); grandchildren, Nichole, Brandon, Hannah, Alyssa, McKenna, Tyler, Courtney, and Benjamin, plus a great-grandchild due in August. She is also survived by nieces, Marcia and Joelle; nephews, Marvel, Joe and Joel; sister-in-law, Evelyn; very special friends, K.C. and Deb, and their children, Randy, Michael, and Anna Lee; step-children and step-grandchildren and their families; and extended family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; siblings, Carl, Eleanora, and Melvin (Buddy); husband, Bill Brady; husband, Fritz Ericksen; nephew, Mark; stepson, Lee; and special mother-in-law, Dora.

Iona Mae was born March 1, 1937, in Hallock, to John and Mabel Edlund. She attended school in the Hallock and Kennedy area, and graduated in 1955. She worked for many years as a stay-at-home mom. As her children grew up, she chose to work outside the home in the retail and mass mailing industries. Iona enjoyed reading, doing crossword puzzles, gardening, and spoiling her grandchildren. 

After dementia affected her ability to live independently, she moved to the Annandale Care Center's memory care cottages, where she enjoyed watching Big Bang Theory, attending church, decorating the cottage for various holidays, and spending time with family and friends. Her greatest pride and joy were her children and grandchildren.
