Violet "Vi" Evelynne Newberg was born October 6, 1921, in Louriston Township, Chippewa County, Minnesota, to Herman and Ella Clauson.  She was baptized and confirmed in the Christian faith and has been a member at Svea Lutheran Church since 1946.  She graduated high school from Wayzata in 1939. Vi then met and married Clarence Newberg in 1943, during the height of WWII.  They moved to Blomkest in 1946, where they purchased farmland and settled down.  Her life was her family.  From raising three children, to helping on the farm - Vi was devoted to seeing her family grow and prosper.  She demonstrated this dedication through her incredible work ethic, which was never separated from her loving and serving heart.  Whether that was weeding the garden, doing farm chores, inspecting ammunition during WWII, cooking Sunday dinner, hosting all means of company with posh and grace, or just being present in the moment with people; Vi loved her family.

 

She is survived by two siblings, Virginia Ostman and Roger Clauson; three children, Gary (Julie) Newberg, Marikay Newberg and Loren (Sue) Newberg; four grandchildren, Scott (Solveig) Newberg, Tami Newberg, Joel (Emily) Newberg, Jeff (Taylor) Newberg and eight great grandchildren, besides other relatives and friends.

 

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Clarence; and two sisters, Marion Traxler and Lucy Koleski.

 

Vi will most certainly be missed, yet she will be continually remembered through her exemplary recipes that continue throughout the generations; still inspiring her descendants to aim to bring the same joy and hospitality that Vi brought to her home and her family.  We take comfort in the hope of Jesus that we will see her again in heaven someday.
