According to Bette Jean (Rask) Sundberg, she loved her life of 90 years. Bette was born to Andrew and Emma Rask in Isanti, Minnesota on April 7, 1930. She grew up in Isanti with seven siblings and graduated from Cambridge High School. That summer she married Gordon Sundberg. They celebrated 60 years together before his death in 2008. Together they served several churches, worked in home missions through God’s Invasion Army and the Evangelism Corp. As a pastor’s wife, Bette took the role seriously by volunteering as a Sunday School teacher, Bible study leader, singing for services, and assisting Gordy with counseling. She welcomed others often into their home – where coffee was on and homemade goodies were ready to share. She was always willing to listen and pray.
Bette enjoyed skiing and canoeing with Gordy, playing Dominoes and other games, knitting hats for people all over the world, baking rolls most Saturdays, cross stitch and reading. She deeply loved her family: children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, siblings, extended family, church family. All will greatly miss her.
She loved to volunteer. A few of her favorites were Trout Lake Camps, Children’s Shelter of Ceba, and Cambridge Intermediate School. If you would like to give a memorial we suggest either Trout Lake Camps or Children’s Shelter of Cebu.
She is survived by her three children, Betsy (Michael) Miller of Cambridge, Mark (Cindy) Sundberg of Minneapolis, Kari (Keith) Betz of Forest Lake; 15 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; one sister, Ruth (Rask) Larson and by many other relatives and friends.
