Obituary for Twylla Mae von Holdt

Twylla Mae von Holdt (Stofferahn), age 80, passed away at Sanford Medical Center Sunday evening, September 4th. Twylla was born on June 5th, 1936 in Lake Park, IA to Arnold and Marcella (Sally) Stofferahn. She was the oldest of three children and graduated from Sioux Valley High School in 1955. Twylla will be remembered most for her friendly smile and distinctive laugh.
Twylla and her mother used to spend countless hours playing cards for coins. Later, Twylla thoroughly enjoyed playing bingo. She owned daubers in every color, could handle multiple cards and still managed to double check the work of those playing around her. She was an avid crocheter, making afghans, hats, doilies and many other keepsakes for friends and family. She was a huge fan of game shows, her favorites being The Price is Right and Let's Make a Deal. Twylla's favorite gadget was her police scanner; she could always be counted on to know what was happening in surrounding communities.
In June of 1954 she met the love of her life Dayle von Holdt and they later married October 25th, 1957. They made their first home in Round Lake and have since lived in the surrounding towns, currently residing in Worthington. Twylla worked at Sather Cookie Company for many years, Colonial Manor Nursing Home and Hy-Vee. She was the mother of four children and in their early years she enjoyed being a stay at home mom, keeping house and making all of the kids’ clothes.
Twylla is survived by her husband Dayle; children, Rick (Dayna) Worthington, MN; Craig (Elise) Anchorage, AK; Julie (Dennis) Reading, MN; Brad (Val) Worthington, MN; 8 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by an infant son, her parents and two siblings.
There will be a viewing Thursday evening at Benson Funeral Home in Worthington from 5-8pm. Prior to the Funeral Service on Friday at the First Presbyterian Church in Round Lake there will be an additional viewing from 9:30-10:30am. The funeral service will commence at 10:30am with the burial immediately following at the Round Lake Cemetery. Lunch will be served at the church after the burial.
