Alveda Barbara Myhre was born on October 21, 1922 in Sanborn, Minnesota, the daughter of Adelheid E. (Weber) and George L. Kosel. She grew up in that area and received her education. On September 10, 1940 she married Harold Madsen at Springfield and they made their home in Springfield for a short time. In about 1945 they moved to the New London/Spicer area. Alveda worked at AMPI in Paynesville for several years, Rice Hospital in Willmar doing housekeeping and later at the Willmar State Hospital also doing housekeeping. Harold died on August 12, 1973. On May 22, 1981 Alveda married David Myhre in Pine City, Minnesota and they made their home in Spicer. After David and Alveda were married they traveled during the winter months to various places until they decided to spend the winters in Arizona. Due to Dave's failing health they made their year round home in Hawick. She began doing volunteer work at the Good Samaritan Care Center in Paynesville during the summer until 2002. Alveda loved being with family and friends and took pride in the achievements they made. She enjoyed crosswords, Cryptoquip, reading and many other hobbies.
