Lenore L. Carlson, 94, of Cambridge, died June 17, 2000 at Grandview Christian Home. Services were held June 22 from North Isanti Baptist Church with Rev.

Organist was Lois Larson. Pallbearers were Greg Appelhof, Christopher Carlson, John Carlson, Nathan Carlson, Derek Johnson, Grant Johnson, Paul MacKinney, and Jeremy MacKinney. Interment was in the North Isanti Baptist Cemetery.
She was born March 30, 1906 to Edwin and Huldah Eastlund on a farm in the Bodum community between Cambridge and Isanti. After attending District 3 Elementary School, she graduated from Cambridge High School, and took an additional year of teachers training. Lenore then taught in two different rural schools (District 45 and District 3) for nine years. Interestingly, she taught several of her younger siblings during the years at District 3.
In 1935 she married Oscar Carlson, and became a housewife. Lenore loved children and wanted a family; they had five children in six years. Lenore felt mothering was important work which God intended women to do. She lived her entire adult life in Cambridge, and was a member of North Isanti Baptist Church. She was the oldest living member of the church at the time of her death. The church and her family were at the core of her life, and she was very active in many activities such as teaching Sunday School, singing in the choir, and serving in various other church related capacities.
Lenore enjoyed a broad range of interests which included travel, art, and family history. She made several trips to Europe, particularly Sweden, where she loved to visit relatives and friends in the area of her ancestral family. Researching the historical roots of her family and how they lived during the period after they immigrated to this country occupied her interest during the last couple decades of her life. Lenore was concerned that the following generations of her family might lose touch with their ancestry, so she put together a history of her family with the help of her siblings. Lenore believed that there are no real sacrifices in life. Whatever inner resources and talents you have can be given away. Those who knew and loved her knew that she was a lady with great inner resources and loved to share these with others.
After Oscar’s death in 1984, she continued to live in her home until 1995 when she moved to an apartment at Millridge Commons. Due to failing health, she moved to Grandview Christian Home in 1997.
