John Iverson Obituary

John Steven Iverson, passed away on Friday, March 10, 2023.  A Celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, April 15, 2023 at the Bethesda Lutheran Church of Malmo at 11:00 a.m.  A visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the church.  Interment will be at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, April 17, 2023 with full military honors (Assembly Area 2).

John was born on October 29, 1947 in St. Paul, MN to Orvin and Esther (Blesie) Iverson.  He graduated from Central High School in St. Paul in 1965, attended the U of M, and later joined the U.S. Navy.  He attended St. Paul TVI and learned his trade as a Pipefitter/Steamfitter.  This year he would have received his 50th year service pin.

He was united in marriage to Grace Underdahl on June 30, 1973.  They raised their family in White Bear Lake, MN.  They enjoyed their time at Mille Lacs Lake fishing for Walleyes.  John was a maple syrup hobbyist and could hardly wait to hang buckets every spring.  He was a hard worker and seemed to be able to fix most anything.  He liked helping out when he could.

John was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, David and Jim; his in-laws, Ervin and Lenora Underdahl, and infant son, Steven John.

He is survived by his loving wife Grace, of nearly 50 years; sons, Mark (Christina) and Nick (Trisha); sisters-in-law, Linda Iverson, Ruth (Russ) Furland, Alice (Duane) Bromeland and many nieces, nephews, dear friends, family and relatives.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the American Cancer Society of Minnesota, Alzheimer’s Association of Minnesota or a charity of your choice.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
