Luverne Fore, age 88, of Gully, MN, passed away on Monday (November 15th) at the Neilson Place in Bemidji, MN.
Luverne Marion Brovold was born on October 8, 1922 in Johnson Township, near Gully, Minnesota to parents Jacob and Thora Brovold. She was baptized and confirmed in Bethany Lutheran Church, rural Gully. She grew up in this rural setting attending Wildwood Country School, Fosston High School and graduated from Oklee High School in 1940. Luverne continued her education at the Teacher's Training Department in Thief River Falls and later earned her degree at Bemidji State College.
She taught in rural schools for four years before her marriage to Arlie Fore on June 15, 1945. They moved to Gully where Arlie was employed and Luverne did bookwork at the Gully elevator for one year. She later returned to teaching in the Gully, Trail and Gonvick areas, where she taught until her retirement in 1986. She thought it was a privilege to have taught three generations of several local families.
