On Tuesday, July 23, Mom earned her angel wings and ascended to be with her heavenly father. There to greet her will be her husband Erdman, and her son Todd Salden. Parents Harvey and Edith Scholes, Sister Merna Lea and her husband Everett Taft. Family and friends that have gone on before her, including her first husband Lawrence Salden. No moss ever grew under Mom’s feet! She raised 4 children, was a Girl Scout Leader, an active volunteer, and a wonderful grandmother. She worked for C.H. Carpenter Lumber for 38 years as an accountant and enjoyed the many trades people she met there. Mom was a devoted member of Nativity of Mary Church in Bloomington, MN. In the last few years, she and Erd became members of Christ the King Church in Edina, MN. Mom and Erd enjoyed many happy years together. They danced in many events around the country. They enjoyed hosting family, friends, and neighbors at their homes in Edina and Mesa, AZ. Mom and Erd were always up for a new adventure and greeted each day with excitement in asking each other “what should we do today?” They did a lot of traveling, often trips which included driving a few hours to find interesting places to eat. Mom is lovingly remembered by her three daughters Laurie (Todd) Wilkening, Cherie Salden and Nancy (Steve) Beiersdorf. Her Sister Shyrl Peterson. Grandsons Collin, Nicholas and Justin Beiersdorf and Paul (Jessica) Goodin. They were very involved with the grandkids, including school and sporting events. My Mom was so proud when Collin described them as “awesome” at school on Grandparents day. She is also survived by Erd’s family. Brother Lee (June) Schenck. Sons Ray, Steven (Sharon),and David (Shannon). Grandchildren Jennifer (Robert) Darchuk, Heather, Rebecca and Max Schenck.
