Nancy Lei Halvorson was born on November 15, 1954, in Willmar, Minnesota, the daughter of Leif and Margarete (Emberland) Fostervold. She grew up on the family farm on the south shore of Diamond Lake and graduated from Atwater High School in 1973. She was employed as a waitress at Andy's Café and Torgy's East in Spicer. She later worked for many years at C Suzanne Women's Clothing Store and Langager's Jewelry in downtown Willmar. On May 29, 1982, Nancy was united in marriage to Todd Halvorson at the Kviteseid Lutheran Church in Milan. They made their home in Spicer and she worked part time with the family business, Halvorson Company Inc. in downtown Spicer. Her first priority was her family and home. Nancy loved cooking, baking and making Scandinavian treats. She enjoyed tending to her flowers and garden and had a fond love for pets. She was an avid genealogist, researching her own family and anyone from around the world who contacted her for help and information.


She is survived by her husband, Todd of Spicer; one son, Aaron of Spicer; one brother, Daniel (and Gloria) Fostervold of Atwater; one sister, Betty (and Gordon) Behm of Atwater and one sister-in-law, Sharon Fostervold of Spicer, besides other relatives and friends.


She was preceded in death by her parents and brothers, David, and Allan in infancy.

Danny Fostervold, my deepest condolences to you and your family over this tragic loss. I was in Atwater in March and asked about Nancy. Who could have guessed I would be reading her obituary less than three months later. Something is wrong when we have to bury our children. W deepest sympathy, Milt Westlund

So sad to that Nancy is no long with us. Remember her being this little doll like child. She really found a lot of facts on both my family and my husbands.

I enjoyed all the time we spent on the farm playing outside or upstairs in Nancy's room as kids. I enjoyed her research about the Emberland genealogy. I know she enjoyed all her hobbies and loved her family.

Dear Todd, Aaron and other family members, I am so sorry for the loss of Nancy. She was a beautiful lady in every sense of the word. I had the privilege of knowing Nancy for over forty years. She was a delightful and fun loving person. She helped me in the office from time to time and was so helpful and a joy to be around. Heaven has gained another lovely Angel. May she Rest In Peace knowing she was loved by all that knew her. My sincere condolences. Gen Bier
