I was born July 1, 1946 in Bemidji, MN to parents, Harry and Dolly Schussman. I married Larry Sorensen on May 4, 1963. Together they raised 4 sons, Scott, Keith, Terry and Brent. I enjoyed farming, milking cows and baling hay. We both enjoyed horses. Our 1st date was the Effie Rodeo in 1962. I loved rodeo, cooking and canning. My favorite was baking. We were instrumental in bringing the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys to this area. I worked for the Super 8 Motel, Highway Host Restaurant, Countryside Restaurant and School District #31 in food services. I was a 4-H leader for 25 years, member of Solway Bible Chapel and was clerk of Jones Township. Her greatest joy in life was her children, grandkids and great-grandkids.
