Obituary for Christine M. Pedersen
Christine M. (Skow) Pedersen, (long-time resident) of Luck, WI died Sunday, March 18, 2012 at Comforts of Home in St. Croix Falls, WI.
Christine was born on November 4, 1915 to Sena Magnus Hansen at Hazelwood, MN (near Northfield). She attended grade school at District 76 through the sixth grade. Her parents then sold the farm and moved to Milltown, WI to be closer to family. Christine was confirmed at Luck Lutheran Church in 1930 along with 25 other members. She attended East Laketown School grades 7-8 and then Luck High School graduating in 1935. Christine worked 1 year for Mrs. Reis (Dr. Reis’s wife) in their home doing ironing, cooking, and cleaning. She was united in marriage to Nels Skow in 1936 and worked at both Paulsen’s and Lawson’s Stores in Luck until they bought a farm northeast of Luck. Not too long after this, in 1939, their son, Warren H. Skow, was born and they farmed for many more years until Nels’s death in 1976.
In 1979 Christine married Norman Pedersen. They enjoyed dancing, playing cards, raising violets, and family gatherings until his death in 1989.
Throughout her years, Christine remained very active, working for Palberg-Hesson Implement, serving as treasurer on St. Peter’s Cemetery Board for 20 years, singing in the church choir, active in the DBS, and Senior Citizen’s Center, (playing cribbage and serving lunch).
Christine loved people and “visiting”. She would always try to bring a smile to everyone that she came in contact with. She especially loved and cherished her time spent with her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and their families. Christine always loved crafts and enjoyed decorating for special occasions, whether it be a raffle bulletin board for the senior citizens, posters for DBS and church bazaars, or the upcoming holidays, (as seen by her window decorations). She loved to celebrate. As of late, Christine was known for her home-made napkin holders and she would always try to bless everyone who she saw with one.
Christine is survived by her grandchildren, Tom Skow of Centuria; Barbara (Jim) Drabek of Centuria; Deborah (Terry) Ingram of Osceola; and Ron (Heidi) Skow of Luck; great–grandchildren, Tyler and Joanna Ingram of Osceola and Jonathan and Nathan Skow of Luck; sister, Sophie (Ervin Berlin) of Kenosha, WI; step-great-grandchildren, Kristi, Melissa, Taylor and Ashley; sisters-in-law, Vivian Pedersen and Evelyn Skow of Minneapolis MN; and brother-in-law, Einer (Doris) Skow of Superior, WI; and many cousins.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Nels Skow; husband, Norman Pedersen; son and daughter-in-law, Warren and Patricia Skow.
Funeral services will be held Thursday, March 29, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Peters Lutheran Church in North Luck with Pastor Rob Lubben officiating with fellowship to follow. Family will greet friends at 10:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please send memorials to St. Peters Lutheran Church.
