Tordis O Rasmussen

July 31, 1923 - September 3, 2019

Tordis Olea Iverson Rasmussen passed away September 3 at Martha and Mary in Poulsbo. She was born July 31, 1923 in Eidsvag, Norway to Torvald and Oline Iverson. In 1929 she and her family moved from Norway to a small farm in Vinland (currently Bangor Sub base) in Poulsbo. As a young woman, Tordis worked at the Oyster Plant on Liberty Bay in Poulsbo. In 1947 she met and married Roy Rasmussen. They were married for 56 years. Tordis loved to fish, to garden, her family, and above all – her Lord and Savior Jesus Chirst. Tordis is remembered fondly by those who knew her. She had a teasing sense of humor and loved to tell stories of her history. Her family extends heartfelt thanks to all of the nurses and aides who lovingly cared for Tordis in her time at Martha and Mary. Tordis is survived by her three children Connie (Lynn) Erickson, Brian (Karen) Rasmussen, and Annette (Joel) Lohafer; her youngest sister Delores Ulvang, and her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A small graveside service was held for family at Vinland Lutheran Church in Poulsbo. Gifts in memory of Tordis can be made to Samaritan’s Purse.
