Twila Burd-Lovas

Our mom, Twila Joyce Burd-Lovas, passed away and was brought to heaven on July 30, 2021.

Twila was born on November 1, 1940 to Reidar and Florence Haakenson at their home near Bottineau, ND. She graduated from Valley City High School in 1958.

She was a faithful Christian, loving mother/grandmother, and great cook spending many hours baking treats/meals for others to enjoy. She retired from the ASCS office after 38 years of service. She enjoyed yearly trips to St. Petersburg Florida in the winter to visit family and spend miles and miles of walking on the beach. Her other love was visiting family in Idaho enjoying the beautiful scenery and good food.

We will miss her more than just as a mom but also a friend. She had a beautiful spirit and lived to serve others. She dedicated so much time to her family and her love was evident in her actions toward others.

Twila was preceded in death by her first husband, Bruce, and son, Jack.
