Anola Joy Syverson was born on October 6, 1927 at home in Hill River Township, Minnesota to parents Rudolph and Clara Martinson Syverson. She grew up in Hill River Township and attended the Lindsay School through the eighth grade. She graduated from McIntosh High School in 1945.

Anola was united in marriage to Lourie Joseph Finseth on November 14, 1945. After their marriage, they farmed and raised their family in Chester Township and Hill River Township. Anola and Lourie were truly partners in the farming operation. She helped with the cattle, driving trucks and tractors and took care of the home. She was a wonderful cook, providing meals for her family and for the guys in the field. Anola also worked at the Fosston Hospital, Oklee Manufacturing, and 25 years for Polk County Nursing.

She was a life long active member of Vernes Lutheran Church. She was a wonderful quilter and enjoyed gardening and being outdoors. At the Finseth house, the door was always open and the coffee pot was always on for visitors. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
