Alvina Lizzie (Odens) Molitor was born on July 3, 1928 at home in Sibley, Iowa, the daughter of Henry and Lizzie (Getting) Odens. She was the sixth of seven children.

In 1958, they purchased a farm in Floyd, Iowa and moved to the farm in 1968 after residing in Le Mars, Iowa for ten years. Her love was the farm – from helping Ernie with the farming, her beautiful gardens and raising her children. She was a woman with many talents, including quilting, sewing, cooking, painting and drawing.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Ernie of 62 years; son, James; grandson, Canyon Molitor; four sisters; and two brothers.
