They are experiencing financial difficulties as a result of death of their husband and father, Darrel Amundsen.

Funds needed to complete house repairs
State prison trusties will be in Vermillion once more this weekend to complete repairs to the Jeff Nelson residence.
Early this spring, the city was poised to condemn the house because of its
poor condition. Nelson, who suffers from emphysema, literally begged, however, to be allowed to reside in his home. Instead of condemning the home, aldermen decided to see if the home could be fixed up. They called on local volunteers to inspect the structure.
The house, they determined, wasn't a total loss. Local volunteers note that approximately $300 in funding is needed to allow workers to complete improvements to the home's interior. Citizens interested in making monetary donations to this and other improvement projects in the community may send their contributions to the Vermillion Area Citizen House Repair Fund at First Dakota Bank in Vermillion, or may contact Jere Chapman, Vermillion.
