"Sideline to Gurina," by Eloise Spilde Hefty

I have some information regarding Gurina Stadem. She had five (I believe) children when she married Peder Stadem. One of those children was Caroline Erickson, who married Nels Brekke. This union had four children, one of which was Anna Gurina Brekke. Anna (granddaughter of Gurina Stadem) married Iver O. Spilde, who, while you and I were at Augustana College, was the head caretaker of grounds and buildings. Anna lived to be 102 years of age. I attended her funeral on Oct 22, 2009. They had two daughters, Mary Ann (Spilde) Hallberg, and Marilyn Spilde-Lee.

It was at the funeral that I found out about the Gurina Stadem and Spilde connection, and was pleasantly surprised.
