Donald was born September 20, 1935 to Roy and Sarah (Sommervold) Abraham near Spink in rural Union County South Dakota. All four of Don's grandparents were born in Norway. He was the second child of the family with an older sister Shirley (now deceased) and younger brother Robert (Marilyn) of Alcester, SD. His youth was spent on his parent's farm and his education began in a one-room school house called Pleasant Hill. He graduated from Alcester High School in 1954, was honorably discharged from the US Army after 3 years in 1959, graduated from Augustana College (BS) in Sioux Falls 1961, University of Wyoming (MS) 1963, Kansas State University (PhD) 1972.

He married Mary J. Urbigkit in August 1963 in Riverton, WY. The couple have two sons David (Cindy) of Wauchula, FL and Elk Point, SD, and Eric (Jane) of Norman, OK, and three grandchildren Ryan, Ethan, and Emily.

Don and Mary Abraham enjoyed extensive travel visiting every state in the US and 36 countries worldwide. Included in these travels Dr. Abraham was employed by Indiana University in Malaysia for 2 ½ years, and by Waldorf College in Tanzania, Africa. He was a professor of physics at the University of South Dakota for 17 years where he served as chair and retired in 1997. He pursued research in his field of nuclear physics at three National Laboratories: Los Alamos, NM, Oak Ridge, TN, and Argonne, IL as well as Kansas State University.

They used them for many pack trips into the Rocky Mountains, Black Hills, and other national forests. More recently he has pursued the less rigorous pastimes of playing bridge with his wife and chess with his grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife, sons, brother, grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Life EventDateDescription
Birth27 October 1901Ole Christopherson Ronnei was born on 27 October 1901 at Lysten, Norway.
He was the son of Christopher Nels Ronnei and Christina Olsdotter Valde.
Marriage20 January 1939Ole Christopherson Ronnei married Marie Abrahamson, daughter of Peder Abrahamson and Julia Christine Christensen, on 20 January 1939 at Seattle, Washington.
Death5 March 1998Ole Christopherson Ronnei died on 5 March 1998 at Kirkland, Washington, at age 96 "Ole was here when Novelty came and went, when the railroads were built and later left, when the riverboats were used to haul milk, cream and other goods until railroads and highways came along," wrote local historian Bob Kosters in an article that appeared in the Nov. 25 issue of the Wagon Wheel,published by the Duvall Historical Society.

"Through all those years of change the Ronneis stayed on the farm, seeing farming methods change, their friends and neighbors pass from the scene," wrote Kosters. "Now Ole and sister Nellie are the only surviving members of the original Ronnei family that came from Norway so many years ago."

Ole Ronnei died March 5 in Kirkland at the age of 96. Ole was born in Norway in 1901, but the family moved to the Novelty area south of Duvall when he was just a year old. Ole and Marie Abrahamsen were married in 1939 and have always lived on the farm he purchased from his father.

"In his younger days, Ole worked for a time as a logger and at other jobs, but never strayed far from the Novelty farm," the Wagon Wheel article stated. "We (historical society members) believe Ole has lived in the valley longer than any other person living today." Ole also worked on a crew in 1918 building the new Novelty Bridge.

Ole is survived by his wife, Marie, daughters Bonnie Amos and her husband Norman of Redmond; Lois Haddock and her husband Ed of Kirkland; sons Jerry Ronnei and wife Marilyn of Chewelah and Duane Ronnei of Carnation; sister Nellie Hermanson of North Bend, seven grandchildren, three step grandchildren, nine great grandchildren and seven step great grandchildren.
