Ione Avonell Sander was born April 20, 1925 to parents Carl and Ethel (Lindberg) Sander of Fosston, Minnesota. She grew up on the family farm and attended Lade country school. She graduated from Fosston High School in 1943.

After high school she lived and worked in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She was in Minneapolis when World War II ended and recalled the celebrating in the streets. She met Ingvald at a house party in a neighbor’s home near where she grew up. It was love at first sight. They were married on September 28, 1947. They lived in Grand Forks, North Dakota until March, at which time they moved to a farm north of Oslo, Minnesota. After experiencing two floods they moved to the Bagley area and bought Ingvald’s uncle’s farm. While living there they attended St. Peter Lutheran Church and were very active in the life of the congregation.

In 1963 they moved to East Grand Forks, Minnesota. Ione did volunteer work at various places. Ione was a skilled seamstress and sewed many garments for grandchildren. Ione loved her garden and flowers and enjoyed canning the produce from her garden. In her later years she enjoyed knitting and crocheting and was an avid quilter. She constructed many beautiful quilts and hand stitched them all. She also painted many beautiful pictures. One of her ministries was cooking at various area camps. Her lefse was notorious and in high demand and sold out at all the craft sales.
