Salome K. Hjelsand, 89, passed away on June 12, 2018 alongside family in Mankato, MN.  Born in southern Wisconsin, she was raised on the family farm.  She married Robert C. Hjelsand in 1950 and for the next 12 years they resided in Chippewa Falls, WI raising 3 boys.  As business opportunities presented themselves, the family moved multiple times, finally settling in Altoona, WI. There they built a successful business which they operated for more than 20 years.  After retiring they bought a home in Mesa, AZ where they spent the winter months, enjoying the warmer weather.  When Robert passed away in 2008, Salome continued to travel to Mesa for several more years until her failing health forced her to move closer to family.  Salome was preceded in death by her husband Robert C. Hjelsand, a son Todd A. Hjelsand of Altoona, WI, her parents Omar and Alice Austad of Blair, WI, and a brother, Ellwood Austad from Blair, WI.  Salome is survived by two sons, Randy Hjelsand (Mary) of Mankato, MN and Barry Hjelsand (Linda) of Frazee, MN, brother, Verle Austad of Blair, WI, and many grandchildren, great grandchildren, cousins, and friends.  The family would like to extend a special thanks to St. Croix Hospice for their help and support in Salome’s last days.

A private service will be announced on a future date.
