Rose Hinderaker

In Loving Memory 1927 - 2007


Rose Jeanne Hinderaker became the first-born child of Aage and Anna (Peterson) Hansen on December 16, 1927 at Waupaca, Wisconsin. When she was a young child, she moved with her parents to Iowa and lived in the communities of Algona, Scarville, and Lake Mills. She attended school in Kiester, Scarville, Livermore, and Lake Mills.

On November 9, 1946, she was united in marriage to Russell Sundsvold. To this loving union, 6 children were born. Russell died in 1971.

She was married to Arnie Braadland on December 31, 1971. After 15 years of marriage, Arnie died.

On November 7, 1987, she married Reuben Hinderaker. They lived in Thompson, Lake Mills, and in Phoenix, Arizona. During her 19 year marriage to Reuben, she was a homemaker. They currently lived at Parkside Apartment in Lake Mills where they enjoyed visiting with their neighbors and sitting outside on nice summer days.

Rose enjoyed cooking, baking and always made enough to feed an Army. Everyone looked forward to her potato salad and caramel rolls. She loved to read all sorts of books, magazines, and catalogs and wrote many letters to friends and family. Traveling, and visiting her family was always a priority. She looked forward to her travels to Wisconsin in particular, where she attended the Hansen Family Reunions.

Rose always had a large collection of family photos on display for anyone who visited and would proudly show off her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Music was something she enjoyed too, especially when it involved her family. She learned to play a little guitar when she was young and still remembered some chords many years later when she picked up her grandson’s guitar. She was helpful to many people throughout her years by assisting whenever she could in driving to doctor appointments, helping others move, etc. She will be fondly remembered for her kindness and generosity. Her faith saw her through the tragedies and the good times that she endured during her lifetime.

Rose passed away at Muse Norris Hospice of North Iowa on Sunday, January 21, 2007, with her loving husband at her side.
