Victor Louverne Blastervold, age 94 of Cannon Falls, passed peacefully on Thursday evening, January 17, 2013 at Angels Care Center in Cannon Falls. Victor was born March 16, 1918 in Deerfield Township, Steele County, MN, the son of Peter and Julia (Woldmoe) Blastervold. After his mother passed away when he was 9 months old, he was raised by his uncle and aunt, Ole and Anna Blastervold of Waseca until the age of 8. Upon the death of his aunt he was raised by Selmer and Karen Peterson of Wanamingo. He was baptized at the Meraker Lutheran Church in Deerfield Township and was confirmed at the Wanamingo Lutheran Church. He worked for many farmers in Leon Township until his marriage to Marion Olson at her family home in Leon Township on June 9, 1943. He and Marion raised four children and farmed in Leon Township for 33 years until her death in 1976. He was an active member of the Spring Garden Lutheran Church all of his married life. He served on the Leon Township Board as treasurer. He was an active member of the local Farmers Union and served on the Board of the Farmers Coop Elevator in Cannon Falls. He and his brother, Raymond owned a semi-truck in the early 1950's hauling eggs to California and vegetables to Minnesota. Many summers he hauled peas to the Faribault Canning Company.

He married Norma (Shoemaker) Miller at St. John's Lutheran Church, Mazeppa on December 29, 1979. They resided in Zumbrota their entire married life of 28 years. He and Norma traveled for a month in winter to visit one daughter in Puebla, Mexico and two daughters in Arroyo Grande, CA.
