Alice E. Pederson, 86, of Silver Lake

Alice E. Pederson, 86, of Silver Lake, formerly of Buffalo Lake, died peacefully with family by her side on Monday, July 3, 2017, at Cedar Crest Estate in Silver Lake.
Funeral services were held Monday, July 10, at Zion Lutheran Church in Buffalo Lake with the Rev. Dave Drager officiating. Cyndi Washburn was the organist and pianist. A duet by Alex and Shelby was “Precious Memories.” Special music was “Heaven’s Garden,” a tribute to a mother’s love, by Kieran Brennan. Congregational hymns were “Precious Lord, Take My Hand” and “How Great Thou Art.”
Casket bearers were James Buboltz, Zach Nyhus, Scott Stuber, Todd Stuber, Brad Karl and Matt Melberg. Interment was in Swedlanda Lutheran Cemetery, Palmyra Township, Renville County.
Alice Evelyn Lang was born Jan. 25, 1931, at home in East Lake Lillian Township. She was the fourth child of 13 born to Frank and Mabel (McDowell) Lang. She was baptized and confirmed in her faith. She attended District 72 country school through the eighth grade. She worked for Phyllis Schendel at the Sweet Shop in Olivia, as well as doing child care for the Vanderhagens.
She married Duane “Bud” Lehrke on Sept. 1, 1952. They farmed together for many years before moving their three daughters to Cosmos, where she was a waitress at Miller’s Café. They moved to rural Hector, and she began working at 3M in Hutchinson, carpooling to work with the neighbor ladies. The couple divorced after 27 years of marriage.
She met and married Lloyd “Bud” Pederson in 1979, selling her house in Hector and moving to Mr. Pederson’s house in Buffalo Lake. They enjoyed 18 years of marriage and spent many happy years traveling, visiting with friends and family and their Sunday afternoon drives around the countryside until Mr. Pederson died in 1997. Mrs. Pederson remained in Buffalo Lake until her daily care was too much for her to handle. She loved her time at Prince of Peace in Hutchinson. As her dementia progressed, she moved to The Pines, also in Hutchinson, and finally to Cedar Crest Estate in Silver Lake.
Mrs. Pederson enjoyed gardening in her younger days, and continued to make wonderful jams and jellies until she left her home in Buffalo Lake. She was always doing things for others — Red Cross Bloodmobile, funeral committee chair at church, Meals on Wheels delivery, crafts for vacation Bible school, and roasting turkeys for the annual supper at church. Her passion was sewing. She made matching dresses for her three daughters when they were little, and continued sewing for others throughout the years. She went on a mission trip to Jamaica, and sewed curtains for an orphanage. She also made pillow case dresses and school bags that went overseas. One of her care givers at Cedar Crest commented that Grandma P. had sewn the floor pillows for Mrs. Rudeen’s class at school in Buffalo Lake. Known for her intricate hand stitching, she loved quilting, having made just under 2,000 quilts in her lifetime. She was dedicated to her family and especially enjoyed when Cheryl brought James and Karlson regularly for visits.
She is survived by her daughters, Joyce (Neil “Alex”) Nyhus of St. Cloud and Cheryl Buboltz of Silver Lake; grandchildren, James (Linda) Buboltz of Silver Lake and Zach Nyhus of Minneapolis; great-grandsons, Jameson and Karlson Buboltz; son-in-law, Larry Stuber, and his children, Scott (Laura) Stuber, Todd (Jill) Stuber and Kristine (Brad) Karl and their children, Keegan, Mackenna and Macy Stuber, Aaron and Tyler Karl and Jackson and Nolan Stuber; three sisters, Leona, Esther and Katie; six brothers, Sam, Art, Bob, LeRoy, Eugene and David; as well as many dear relatives and friends. She has one goddaughter, DeAnn Fast.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd “Bud” Pederson; daughter, Gloria “Buffy” Stuber; granddaughter, Amy Nyhus; son-in-law, Kevin Buboltz; stepdaughter, Janice Pederson; her parents; brother, Harvey; sisters, Lillian and Nina; along with many nieces, nephews and in-laws in the Lang, Lehrke and Pederson families.
