Liz’s journey began in Milan, where she grew up with her sister, Marian, and parents in rural Milan. She was baptized and confirmed in Big Bend Lutheran Church. Her childhood was filled with the simple joys of playing with her dolls, her dog Fido, piano, schoolwork and helping her parents around the farm. She was active in Girl Scouts and Luther League and attended the National Lutheran Youth Gathering in San Francisco, CA in 1955. After graduation from Milan High School in 1956, she pursued a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education with a focus on Social Studies and Business Education at Moorhead State University (now MSUM) in Moorhead, MN. It was while at college and spending the weekend with her roommate, Bonnie in Morris, MN that her heart found its counterpart in Delroy “Pete” Mathison at a town dance. She graduated college on June 3, 1960, and Liz and Pete were married on July 30, 1960, in Big Bend Lutheran Church. Their marriage of 62 years was a testament to enduring love. Together, they raised two children: Karen and Larry. She was so proud of them.

Liz beginning teaching in 1960 at the West Central School of Agriculture (WCSA) in Morris, MN and then served as the first secretary for Rodney Briggs, Superintendent of the University of Minnesota, Morris as WCSA phased out. She was immensely proud to have worked at the UM- Morris until 1969 when the family moved to Garrison, ND to support Delroy’s career advancement. It was during this time that Liz spent as a full-time homemaker and was active in the community. Four years later, they would move to Minot, ND followed by a short stint in Shoreview, MN before returning to Minot in 1975 as Delroy’s career continued to expand.

From 1978 to 1987, Liz was the parish secretary for Christ Lutheran Church in Minot, ND. She was active in the criterion bible study club, and church circle. Together with Pete they enjoyed playing bridge regularly with dear friends. In 1987, Liz received her certification as a Parish Secretary by the American Lutheran Church. This milestone included a blessing event at Christ Lutheran Church in Minot, ND. It was also during this time that Liz, together with her husband harvested many cucumbers for pickling, berries, and other vegetables from their always plentiful garden. While raising Karen and Larry, they enjoyed many trips fishing on Lake Sakakawea, camping into Canada, visiting extended family back in Minnesota. Liz and family also took camping trips to Montana, South Dakota, and Colorado along with an epic trip over Christmas and New Year’s to Montana, Utah , Colorado and California to visit family, see the sights and be back into time for school to resume. Liz was active in raising her children in the Lutheran faith, ensuring their homework was complete and encouraged them in music, sports, and theatre. She rarely missed a school performance and loved having Karen and Larry’s friends over anytime.

In fall of 1987, Liz and Pete would move to Detroit Lakes, MN residing on Big Floyd Lake for more than 30 years.

In the fall of 2021, they would move together to Monticello, MN to be closer to their son. Whenever she talked with her family she always wanted to know that everyone was okay, asking by name of each one she held closest.

Throughout their life together, Liz and Pete enjoyed entertaining family and friends in their home. She was famous for her lefse, flatbread, sandbakkels and brownies all made with love. Together they made multiple trips to Norway to connect with extended family. They also enjoyed trips to Hawaii, the Caribbean, Mexico, Florida, Arizona, Texas and Alaska.

When her grandchildren, Peter and Emma, were born, she embraced her role as Grandma proudly.

Together with Grandpa, she loved having Peter and Emma stay with them at the lake, teaching them to fish and play cards! She always made sure there were brownies and made her tasty BBQ and her homemade buns! Her heart expanded even further when Larry met, and married Veronica Westerman and she became grandma two more times to Izaac and Owen!

Concluding service & burial was in Kviteseid Lutheran Cemetery, Milan, Minnesota.

Bradley Arden Moen was born to Simon and Helen Moen on January 11, 1951 in Madison, MN. He passed peacefully on April 7th, 2024 in his home in Milan with family by his side. He was 73 years old. He was the third oldest of his three siblings, Claire, Bruce, and Colleen. He grew up on the farm where he later raised his own family, just outside of Milan, MN. Brad was baptized and confirmed at Borgund Church, later becoming an active member of Kviteseid Lutheran Church with his former wife Wendy and four children.

Brad attended school at Milan High School, graduating in 1969. Growing up he loved sports including football and wrestling. He attended Concordia College in Moorhead, MN, graduating in 1973 with a degree in physical education. He loved to tell everyone that he only needed one more credit and he would have been a doctor. He enjoyed playing football at Concordia, and following graduation being assistant wrestling coach at Milan High School.

Brad taught P.E. in Atwater, MN for two years before starting to farm full time in 1975. At this time, he took over managing his dad’s cattle. He moved onto the family farm in 1979, and in 1982 started his Pioneer Seed Business. Once a farmer, always a farmer, he never really officially retired.

Brad enjoyed cooking, with many mornings having breakfast on the table before the house woke. He loved to host and entertain for his family, friends, and customers. He was very proud of his blood sausage and chili days.

Brad was well known for his singing voice and was a beloved member of the Chord Ayres for many years, joining in 1976. He enjoyed being a member of the school and township boards as well. Everyone knew when Brad entered a room, as he was not quiet.

He loved to take his family on vacations, especially road trips in the RV to Arizona to visit his parents. He became an official snow bird himself about 20 years ago continuing the tradition of wintering in Arizona, where he met his longtime companion Norma. Family was most important to him, often proudly sharing stories and successes of his children and grandchildren.
