Obituary for Ella Mildred Gulden

Ella Gulden was born January 7, 1921 to Ida and Julius Knutson in Langdon, North Dakota, the sixth of nine children. They moved to Montevideo, MN in 1933 where they lived briefly with her grandparents then moved to the family farm. Ella graduated from Montevideo High School. She married Stanley Gulden on May 9, 1943. They were married for 56 years when Stanley died in 1999. Ella and Stanley lived in Las Vegas while he was in the military. They moved to Watson, MN where they farmed until moving to Sleepy Eye in 1959. Ella and Stanley then moved to Round Lake in 1961. While Stanley was a Post Master, Ella worked at Sather’s for 20+ years until retiring in 1987. Ella died peacefully in her home surrounded by her family on November 12, 2016.
Ella was an active member of her community. Her activities included, being a member at the Bethel Lutheran Church, Ladies Aid, PTA, Band Mothers, and American Legion Auxiliary. Ella was a loyal member at the Senior Center where she had coffee with her friends daily. They formed a walking and line dancing group that she participated in well into her 80’s. She enjoyed dancing, fishing annually at the Lake of the Woods, playing cards, and gardening. The time around the kitchen table with her family talking and sharing memories were very important to her, including requests from family for her delicious brownies.
