Eva Melquist (Rustad), age 92, born February 11, 1924 in Napoleon, ND and passed away peacefully September 6, 2016 in Arden Hills, MN. She grew up in Belle Fourche, SD and moved to Sioux Falls in 1941 after marrying Pershing 'Jack' Melquist ... was a long time resident. Both were proud WWII Veterans.

She will be missed ... a very special Mother, Grandma and Great Grandma.
