Conradson, and the couple were married until his passing in October of 1997.

Mardel was not afraid of hard work and dedicated her life to raising her children and family which she took so much pride and joy in. She also spent 12 years working as an apartment manager.  She loved her residents and enjoyed making sure they were always taken care of as well.  Mardel had such a beautiful soul and look on life. She enjoyed gardening and her flowers, reading novels from her favorite author, Danielle Steel, keeping up with her favorite tv show, Days of Our Lives, watching her favorite NFL team the Minnesota Vikings play, decorating for any season or holiday or finding some great items at Trinkets and Togs. Her number one thing she cherished over anything else was her grandchildren and she was so proud of those kids and loved them all with a full heart.

Left to cherish her memory are her children: Dawn (Brett) Brown, David Evanson, Dennis Evanson and Brenda (Roger) Conradson Clark; grandchildren: Joslyn Evanson, Taylor Evanson, David Evanson II, Amy Evanson, Mary Evanson, Heather Voelker, Dennis Evanson Jr., Melissa Evanson, Joe Clark, Jason Clark, Jennifer Clark, and Jenna Hall; 21 great-grandchildren, 2 great-great grandchildren as well as many nieces and nephews. 

She is preceded in death by her parents, Hector and Clara Newman, one son, Daniel Evanson, one grandson, Jeremiah Miller and four brothers, Ralph, George, Bob and an infant.
