Pictured are author Robert Dudley at far left, Adrian and Lucy Isle with their mother Lisa, Eddy Holen (holding up the plaque with Ivend's likeness on it), Kathryn Holen, Billy Eull, Jenny Harriel, and Anna EulL Kathryn is a daughter-in-law of Ivend, and Lisa, Jenny and Anna are Ivend's granddaughters. Ivend died more than 40 years ago when a mailed parcel containing a bomb exploded at the Kimball Post Office while Ivend was sorting mail early in the morning May 13,1976. While some family members came for the dedication, some could not because it is still too painful. The case remains open and unsolved, although Dudley's book "Tragedy on the Prairie: The Story of the 1976 Kimball Post Office Bomb" clearly points to a suspect who is in custody for life. The plaque will be installed in the Kimball American Legion building, where Ivend Holen had been a member. The family thanks all who played a part in this event honoring their father, grandfather and great-grandfather. (Watch for more in next week's Tri-County News,) Staff photo by Jean Doran Matua. P.O.
