Joyce D. Severson, age 91, of Madison, died Monday, January 31, 2022, at the Good Samaritan Society in De Smet. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Joyce was born on July 22, 1930, to Richard and Anna Serfling in De Smet. She spent her childhood on a farm in rural De Smet, and while in High School she had many part time jobs in De Smet. She moved to Madison to attendthe Eastern Normal College and then taught in a country school. She married Harold Severson and together they raised a family and built their home and business. She also worked as nurse aid at Bethel Lutheran Home for many years and also helped with her husband’s business, Harold’s Electric.
In retirement, she loved playing cards with her Grasshopper group and her McDonalds friends. Traveling into her 80’s on the Harley with her son, taking a river cruise and driving a team of horses was thrilling and gave her great stories to share. She was a member and active volunteer of Trinity Lutheran Church.
She is survived by her son Rick (Mary) of Summerfield, FL, and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband Harold in 1991, her parents, two brothers LaVern (Jim), Earl, and one sister Dorothy Hillestad.
