    • home wedding||Gabriel and Edna observed their golden wedding anniversary with an open house in their home on December 23, 1965. Their first home, which is on the same farm where they continued to live, once housed the Lodi Post Office. Lodi was once an aspiring town hoping for a railroad to pass though it, but the rails went elsewhere, so Lodi gradually disintegrated from having a store, post office, flour mill, and other businesses to what is now all fertile farm land with only a cluster of four homes to mark the location.

      In his youth, Gabriel was on the winning Dalesburg and wakonda baseball teams. He was an extensive farmer, cattle feeder, and public servant. He had served on school and local boards at various times, and at his passing, he was president of the Vermillion Valley Flood Control Group, the Farmers' Mutual Insurance Company, and was a director of the Producers Commission Association at Sioux City, Iowa.

      Edna is an accomplished musician. She lived on the farm home where she came as a bride, eight miles east of Wakonda, South Dakota until 1968. In late November of 1968, Edna (Heglin) Nelson entered the Good Samaritan Home in Centerville, South Dakota. In the summer of 1970, she went to Longmont, Colorado to live with her daughter, Ruth (Nelson) Foote and her husband, Ralph Foote.

      Edna is buried next to her husband Gabriel, who preceded her in death in 1967.
