Edward Paul Van Nevel

Edward Paul Van Nevel was born September 15, 1918 in Marshall, MN, to Paul and Maria (Slock) Van Nevel. He grew up on several farms in Lyon County before settling on a farm near Lynd. He was united in marriage to Beatrice Bot of Ghent, Minnesota, on June 23, 1941. He enjoyed farming, gardening, playing cards and spending time with family especially grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was a generous caregiver. Ed’s strong religious beliefs were evident in his church volunteering and his counseling of parents who had lost children. He believed his faith got him through life, good times and bad. He was very involved in the community, including serving as a Lynd School Board member for 19 years. Ed will be remembered for his sense of humor, cheerful personality, and his joy in sharing stories with visitors. Edward passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 18, 2018, at Heritage Pointe Senior Living in Marshall. He is survived by his daughter Alicia (and Douglas) Nolte of Manchester, MO and their son Erik; son Roger (and Pat) of Cold Spring and their children, Jesse, Jamie, Suzanne, and Michael; son Donald (and Diane) of El Mirage, AZ and their children Trevor and Tyler; daughter Mary (and Carroll) Stanton of Lynd and their children Carrie, Meghan, and Troy; son Kevin (and Marlys) of Sauk Rapids and their children Chris and Stephanie; daughter Ellen (and Tim) Bourgeault of Roseville and their daughter Allison; son Dean (and Janet) of Roseville and their children Amanda and Christina; and 20 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife Beatrice and son Lawrence, as well as his parents and siblings.

My deepest condolences to the family at this difficult time. I hope the words at Rev.21:4 bring you comfort. It says: "God will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more,neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
