Ione L. (Vik) Wollberg
December 26, 1919 – April 8, 2018
Ione Luverne (Vik) Wollberg was born at Velva, North Dakota to Henry George Vik and Caroline (Livdahl) Vik. She was baptized on January 28, 1920 in Velva, ND and confirmed in the Christian faith on March 25, 1934 at St Peter’s Lutheran Church in Scribner, NE. After high school graduation at Scribner, she moved to Omaha and worked in various secretarial jobs. During World War II she served with the WAVES in the U.S. Naval Reserve and was stationed in Washington, D.C.
On October 5, 1947, Ione was united in marriage to Ervin Robert Wollberg at First Lutheran Church in Omaha. God blessed this union with four sons: Raymond, Kenneth, Jeffrey, and Andrew. On December 7, 1960 the family transferred their church membership from First Lutheran Church to Mount Calvary Lutheran Church, where both Ione and Ervin were active members.
Ione, who loved babies and children, was always a dedicated, loving, and caring daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was also an amazing cook. She made the best meals for the family.
She was preceded in death by her parents George and Carolyn Vik, husband Ervin and brother Gregor Vik. She is mourned by her four sons and daughters in law, twelve grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren: Raymond (Wanda), grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Leanna Meyer (Mark) and children Natalie Mei and Karalyn Grace, Aaron Wollberg (Sandra) and children Connor Leon and Paige Vivienne, Jason Wollberg (Kirsten) and children Lucille Violet and James Douglas, and Brittany Howard (Mark), Kenneth (Peggy), Jeffrey (Renita), grandchildren and great-grandchild: Jessica Miller (Timothy), Trenton Wollberg (Lydia), Dillon Wollberg, Ivy Arndt (Joshua) and daughter Anastasia Ruth and Andrew (Jeanne), grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Jacob Wollberg, Chelsea Herrera (Adam) and son Bryceton Adam, Alexis Wollberg, Matthias Wollberg (Naomi) and children Henrietta Ione and Mary Dorothea. Ione is also survived by two sisters, Mavis Johnson and Norma Brown, her foster daughter, Carol Patterson (Ralph), and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
We commend Ione unto the mercy of God in whose Name she was baptized and whose Word she was taught.
