Dean Marlow Iversen
June 1, 1937 - July 7, 2024

Place of Birth: Sidney, Montana
Residence: Sidney, Montana
Age: 87

Dean “ Marlow” Iversen, loving husband, father, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend was called home on July 7, 2024 at the Sidney Health Center in Sidney, MT with family by his side.

Marlow was born to Fred and Nora (Jensen) Iversen in Community Memorial Hospital in Sidney, MT and grew up in the Ridgelawn area north of Sidney. Marlow graduated from Sidney High School in 1955 and soon after enlisted with the United States Army National Guard. He was honorably discharged from the Guards and after the Big Freeze of ’59 he and three of his buddies (Dale, Joe, and Louie) decided to pack up and move to California where they worked for Heidrich Farms.

It was in Woodland, California that he met and married his first wife Carolyn Munsterman on July 28th, 1961. To that union, four children were born: Deanna, Kevin, Vicki, and Marty. Marlow and Carolyn moved back to Sidney where he carried on the family tradition of farming. They remained on the farm and celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary in July of 1986. Sadly, in December of the same year Carolyn passed away suddenly.

Marlow remained on the farm raising sugar beets, grain, and raising feeder cattle. In December of 1988, he started a new chapter of his life when he married Carolyn Miller of Savage, MT. She brought her two children, Renae and Shane, who Marlow adopted as Iversen’s; thus creating a beautifully blended family. Marlow and Carolyn lived on the Iversen farm north of Sidney and later bought and moved to the Miller farm in Savage, which he farmed until his retirement. Marlow and Carolyn enjoyed 35 years together and through all his health challenges later in life, Carolyn was by his side caring for him and making sure he was well cared for.

Marlow loved getting together with his friends and family and especially enjoyed spending time with his many grandchildren. He always had a big smile when he held a new grandbaby! Marlow was an avid bowler throughout his life and enjoyed hunting and fishing when time permitted. He was a member of the First Lutheran Church of Savage and had such a strong faith that even when he couldn’t attend services in person, he watched them on the computer.

Marlow is survived by his wife, Carolyn of Sidney, MT; children, Deanna (Michael) Burkett of Flomaton, AL, Kevin (Leslie) Iversen of Filer, ID, Vicki (Rusty) Buckendorf of Williston, ND, Marty (Britney) Iversen of Zahl, ND, Renae Iversen of Hillsboro, OR and Shane (Kailea) Iversen of Savage, MT; sister, Elaine Nelson; 20 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; a special cousin who he called ‘brother’, Dale Iversen; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents, first wife, Carolyn; and brother, Leroy.

Carolyn, Deanna, Kevin and all of Marlow's family,
Not only did Marlow always call me "his babysitter" whenever he saw me because I babysat Deanna and Kevin when they were babies, but living across the creek when I was a teenager, he was my "adopted brother" and I would never have made it through those teenage years without him. It was a pleasure to hoe that 40 acre field of beets and help him in anyway possible. God has one of the best souls in Heaven now. May your many memories keep him close. RIP Marlow. With sympathy, love, & hugs, Charlotte

OH Carolyn--I can't even begin to tell you how very sorry I am. You lost the love of your life, and the pain is deep, I know. I'm so very happy that you found each other and shared a beautiful life. Please accept my prayers and condolences. The Lord is close to the broken hearted, those grieving and is hugging you with love right now. Yours in Christ-Sandi

To the Iversen family,
I'm so sorry for your loss. Marlow was a wonderful, kind man. So many wonderful memories...the sing along sessions, the parties and the BBQ gatherings. He was a great friend. You will be missed "uncle" Marlow.
