Huldah Tiller

Huldah Theresa (Ronning) Tiller passed away Sunday, Aug. 18, 2013, at the Good Samaritan Nursing Home in Mohall after a long illness.

She was born Sept. 29, 1919, to Marius and Anna (Kleven) Ronning, at Ryder. She attended school in Ryder, graduating in 1937. She worked in Minot for many years for Stearns Motors, FSA, AAA Offices, the Ryder Exchange, Minot Federal Savings & Loan, and was a receptionist at Trinity Hospital for several years.

Until the time of her illness, she was a foster grandparent at Washington Elementary. Huldah was elected state commander of the Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary in 1966.

At an early age, Huldah and sister, Myrtle (Hanson), began singing for many school, church and community affairs, and continued singing in the chapel services daily at the nursing home until just a few weeks before her death.

On Nov. 16, 1941, Huldah married Les Tiller. Together they had four children: Barbara Ann, Lyndon Keith, Wanda Lea, and David Alan.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Les; daughter, Barbara Richau; son, Lyndon; sisters, Clara Dobrinski (Otto), Ryder, Myrtle Hanson (Kenneth), Des Lacs, Elma Warner, Boulder, Colo.; and brothers, Leon Ronning and Norman Ronning, both of Minot.

Huldah is survived by: her daughter, Wanda Daniels, and son, David Tiller, both of Hilton Head Island, S.C.; grandson, Matthew Daniels, of Charleston, S.C., granddaughters, Kristin Richau and Traci Rader (Joe), two great-granddaughters, Kaylie and Alyssa Rader, all of Thornton, Colo.; son-in-law, Bob Richau (Cindy), of Greeley, Colo.; and her very “special son,” Richard Thompson (Mary), of Towner; and a host of nieces and nephews.

Funeral: Will be held Saturday, Aug. 31, at 10:30 a.m., in Bethany Lutheran Church, located at 215-3rd Ave. SE, Minot.

Burial: Ryder Cemetery.

Visitation with the family: Will be from 2 to 7 p.m., Friday, Aug. 30, at Thompson-Larson Funeral Home, Minot.

We can’t begin to thank you enough.
