Hoel family reunion celebrates 147 years in America 

 

NORSE - More than 45 descendents of Christopher Michaelson and Pauline Aasgaard Hoel gathered on March 18 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church at Norse to commemorate the family’s more than 14 decades of living in the United States.

The Alma Hoel Aars branch of the family hosted the group which worshiped together at the 10:45 a.m. church service and then assembled in the parish hall to share updates, view family treasurers, and reflect on their shared, blessed heritage.

Centerpiece of the program was a video recording made in 1992, which featured several of Pauline and Christopher’s surviving grandchildren recounting their personal memories of the personalities and lifestyles of their grandparents. This recording was especially treasured because all of those grandchildren themselves are no longer with us.
