Halverson, Florence E. of Minneapolis, born on May 2, 1919, died peacefully in her bed on May 8, 2022 at the age of 103. She was predeceased by her husband, C. Alfred Halverson, Jr. She is survived by her children Anita Hoffman (Edward) of Apple Valley, MN; Arlene Lee (Welton) of Oakland, CA; Louise Halverson (David Sommer) of Richfield, MN; Clifford Halverson (Laurie Hedden) of Salinas, CA; and Victor Halverson (Ari) of Minneapolis, MN; grandchildren Eric Halverson (Cristina Buss) of Davis, CA; Julia Halverson (Ricard Tort) of Sant Cugat del Valles, Catalunya, Spain; Christopher Pennock of Minneapolis; Alex Halverson of Lisle, IL; and Matthew Halverson (Claire Woolf) of Christchurch, NZ; great-grandchildren Adara and Nash Halverson of Davis, CA; Alex and Emma Tort of Sant Cugat; plus a kiwi baby on the way. Florence's passions were family, music, and tennis, which she played until age 96. She diligently cared for her husband through his 31 years of disability while raising the children. An active member of Living Spirit United Methodist Church (formerly Asbury) of Minneapolis for some 70 years, she conducted their adult and children's choirs and bell choir. Other choirs she led include the Norwegian Ladies Choir, Mothersingers, a tuned flower-pot ensemble, and singalongs at her senior residence. Until her brief final illness, she played piano music twice weekly at her residence dining room. Her positive spirit and strong resolve will be greatly missed. A memorial event will be held later.
