GOLDEN VALLEY, MN (April 17, 2014) — Muriel Rocene, 87, who worked in the Covenant Offices accounting department for 40 years, died April 10.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Covenant Village of Golden Valley.
Muriel was born in Little Falls, Minnesota, and attended Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis and North Park College in Chicago.
She served under four Covenant presidents—Theodore W. Anderson, Clarence Nelson, Milton Engebretson, and Paul Larsen. Muriel held the position of office manager from 1971 until her retirement in 1983.
“She gave her whole life in service to the Covenant and most likely was the longest serving individual of anyone who ever worked at Covenant Offices,” said Dean Lundgren, vice president for finance and director of pensions. “In her last year of service, prior to her retirement, I had the privilege of being her supervisor—which actually means she taught me what to do.”
