Carol Diane Iverson was born April 8, 1945 daughter of Tilmer and Goldie (Finstad) Breiland in Thief River Falls, MN. She was baptized April 29, 1945 and confirmed October 30, 1960 at First Lutheran Church in Thief River Falls, MN. She attended school in Thief River Falls.
On September 27, 1975 she was united in marriage to Glen Iverson in Webster, SD. The couple made their home on the farm near Goodridge, MN. Where they raised their children, small grains, milk cows, pigs, chickens and turkeys.
Carol was the first female barber in Thief River Falls, she owned and operated the The Tonsorial Shop. She later moved the shop to Goodridge so she could be closer to home to raise her family and milk cows. She also owned The Loading Dock Concession Stand and Catering, which was considered the best food around. She later went on to work at Northern Pride and Arctic Cat.
She enjoyed making specialty cakes, cooking, baking, gardening and canning, sewing and knitting. Most of all she loved chasing grandkids around and making sure everyone was fed well. She would try anything and accomplish most.
