Myrtle "Sue" Storeygard (Eidsvoog)
Myrtle E. “Sue” Storeygard
Myrtle Evelyn Storeygard, age 95, of the Gables of Boutwells Landing in Oak Park Heights, Minn., went home to be with the Lord on Mar. 30th, 2018.
She was born on October 9th, 1922 in Minneapolis, Minn., to Martin and Aasta Eidsvoog. Sue was married to Normann Storeygard for 67 magnificent years.
She was a great wife to Norm and a fantastic mother to her three boys. She had a smile that was so compelling that it made everybody happy.
Her granddaughter Kimberly summed her up best: “It was impossible not to love her…she always had a smile, hug, or kind word for anyone who needed them. She was unfailingly cheerful and optimistic…an exemplar of how strong and adaptive humans can be when they choose to believe the best of each other.”
She was preceded in death by her husband Normann, her parents, Martin and Aasta Eidsvoog, 3 brothers and 1 sister, and her infant son Paul. She is survived by her three sons David (Judy), Alan (Paula), Bob (Didi); grandchildren and great-grandchildren; her sister-in-law Betts Eidsvoog; and Norm’s sister Veda Emery (Curt).
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to the Lakeview Hospice program and staff or the Alzheimer’s Foundation. Heartfelt thanks go out particularly to the Gables at Boutwells Landing nurses and staff for the love and care they showed to Sue during her last years.
A memorial service will be held at the Boutwells Landing chapel in Oak Park Heights, Minn., on Friday, May 18th at 11:00 A.M. sith a visitation starting at 10:30 A.M. Private family internment will be at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
