Zeldora R. Bjorklund
Posted: December 02, 2015 - 11:05 am

Zeldora Ruth (Trippler) Bjorklund was born July 29, 1931 in Chengwatana Township to Charles and Velzora Trippler. Zeldora was the youngest of seven children and was preceded in death by her husband Bernard, both her parents, and brothers Daryle, DeLore and Dean. Her parents named all their children with names that started with the letter D (a tradition carried on to the next generation) except for the very last baby, Zeldora. She grew up on the Trippler family farm in Pine City in a large family of five boys and two girls. Her life was not an easy one. The family lost their mother when Zeldora was about two, so the children were raised primarily by Grandma Trippler. Upon her grandmother’s death, housekeepers provided for the children until they came of age and could care for themselves. The girls cared for the house and the boys took care of the farm. Zeldora’s childhood was not an especially easy one, but it made for a close knit family who loved each other and remained close while raising families of their own.
