She was born Oct. 31, 1921, at Colgan, N.D., to Carl E. and Laura (Asplund) Monson. She received her early education at Crosby, N.D., where she graduated from eighth-grade. She worked in sewing room in Crosby, Continental Can Company in Chicago, Ill., and then was a hired girl for Henry and Glenda Gardner in Richland, Mont., where she met and fell in love with Frank Lasar.
She married Frank on Nov. 11, 1944, at Plentywood, Mont., and the couple made their home in Richland (five miles south of Richland), in a two-room house. They remained there for five years until Frank was able to build their first real home in 1949. She was a devoted and loving wife and mother. She was very religious. The couple raised four children.
She was a member of the Ladies Temperance Society, Nazarene Church and then Seventh Day Adventist Church.
She was like an angel among us. She taught lots of children about the Lord, both at home and at church. When it came to entertaining children she was amazing, perhaps because she was a child at heart. She was a good cook and whenever company came, she always found something for all to eat and enjoy. She sang and played the guitar and piano. She sewed and quilted. She enjoyed cross-word puzzles and other types of word games. She enjoyed discovering her family roots via geneology. She loved reading and writing letters over everything else and was a pen pal to many.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Carl and Laura; her husband, Frank Lasar; one son, Danny; one half-brother, Ken Monson; three half-sisters, Ella Holte, Verna Welsch and Aileen Reckner; one brother, Clair Monson; and four sisters, Irene Armitage, Eleanor Globis, Marie Warwas and Lenora Pettit.
She is survived by two daughters, Lenora Kelly of Glasgow, Mont., and Diane McGovern of Davenport; one son, Ken Lasar of Glasgow; one brother, Lloyd Monson, of Citrus Heights, Calif.; one sister, Stella (Vern) Challes, of St. Cloud, Minn.; 13 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
