Gudrun (Lien) Kundert, age 96, went home to be with her Savior on Tuesday, August 2, 2022. She was born along with her twin sister, Gunvar, October 28, 1925 in Adams Township to Andrew and Elise Lien. She attended Farmers Country School and graduated from Blanchardville High School. On January 28, 1945, she married Delbert Kundert at Yellowstone Lutheran Church in Argyle. They farmed in Skinner Hollow for 26 years.

They were blessed with two sons, Larry (Dianne) Kundert, John A (Jean) Kundert, two daughters Marcia (Dennis) Davis, and JoAnn (Andrew) Eberle.  They also have eleven grandchildren, Michelle (Fred) Kelley, Joe (Kim) Kundert, Brent (Kim) Kundert, Robin (Brett) Apold, Russell (Susan) Davis, Daniel (Tami) Eberle, Andrea (Robert) Jenson, Ryan (Fiancé, Christine) Eberle, Jason (Mandy) Kundert, Jeff (Amy) Kundert, Jim (Diana) Kundert, and seventeen great grandchildren.  

Gudrun had many interests that occupied her time, which included music, composing songs, writing poetry, calligraphy, creating greeting cards, sewing, knitting, crocheting, and painting; she shared her gifts and talents generously with family and friends. She was a faithful prayer warrior, always arising early in the morning to pray for her loved ones. She worked in sales at JC Penney’s for 8 years and Florine’s for 11 years.

She was a member of St. John’s Church where she was active in choir, taught Sunday School, served in Circle, Women’s Guild, Church Council, Parish Visitors, and was a member of Sweet Adelines.  She also attended Stateline Women’s Connection meetings and prayer coffee, which is an outreach for Stonecraft Ministries.  She was a member of the planning team for many years and hosted and guided Bible Studies. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Delbert; daughter, Marcia Davis; brothers Ole and Ardell Lien; sisters, Marie Henning, Inga Hanson, Olga Ommodt, Ruth Stillman, and twin sister, Gunvar Haesler; and an infant brother.
