Obituary for Dr. Lawrence R. Pederson

Dr. Lawrence Robert Pederson, 84, of Frederic, WI died Monday, December 19, 2016 at St. Croix Regional Medical Center. Lawrence was born May 31, 1932 to Arnold and Signa (Molberg) Pederson. He grew up on a small dairy farm outside Cumberland, WI. Lawrence graduated from Cumberland High in 1950. After graduation he attended the University of Wisconsin River Falls for his undergraduate degree and University of Minnesota School of Veterinary Medicine where he received his Doctorate in 1957. He practiced in Montana for a short period before realizing he wanted to be back in the area. In 1959 Lawrence moved to Frederic and started his practice. He continued to work until he was 80 years old.

Lawrence married Doris Chell in 1958. Into this union two children were born, Allen and MaryJo. A tragic accident took the lives of Doris and MaryJo. He later married Darlene Johnson and adopted her four children, Luann, Patricia, Jeffery and Brenda. They had a child together, David. He married Linda Lindberg in 1984 and brought her three children into his heart, Robert, Kathy and Dawn.

Lawrence was very involved in the Frederic community. Lawrence and Linda were chosen as citizens of the year. He served on both the Frederic School board and the Bremer Bank board for many years. He was very proud to be a Mason and loved to work their booth at Frederic Family Days.

Lawrence was a man of strong faith. He was very active in the churches he attended. He acted on the church councils of Pilgrim Lutheran of Frederic and New Hope Lutheran Church of Grantsburg. Lawrence loved visiting with friends and family, playing cards, and most of all his fishing trips to Canada.
