Obituary for Louella L. Giller

Giller, Louella (Johnson, Knutson)

Louella Lorraine Giller, 94 of Frederic, Wisconsin passed away peacefully on January 27, 2014 at the Parmly Nursing Home in Chisago City, MN. Louella was born in Luck, Wisconsin to Oscar and Emma Johnson on February 15, 1919. Louella was preceded in death by husbands, Oliver Giller and Melvin Knutson; son-in-law, Bill Anderson; her parents, Oscar and Emma Johnson; brothers, Raymond, Harry, Roy, Frank and Willard Johnson; and sisters, Gertrude Klas, Nellie Anderson and Helen Giller. Louella is survived by her children, Charlotte Anderson, Lorraine (Donald) Korts, Lavonne (Robert) Lumsden, Gary (Robin) Giller, Cheryl Hart and Wayne Giller, in addition to 21 grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren.

Louella lived the majority of her life in Luck and Frederic, WI where she worked for many years at the Minneapolis Plastic Plant in Frederic. She also spent many years as a homemaker raising her children. She was active in the Homemakers Club for over 50 years. Louella‘s life was richly blessed both in WI and in her new home in MN. For the last three years she lived in Chisago City in the Parmly Senior Lakeview Apartments and most recently the Parmly Nursing Home. She was very artistic and loved decorating cakes, dancing, entertaining, playing cards, and traveling whether to Duluth or to Europe, most of all she enjoyed just being with people. Louella found great joy hosting family picnics and Holiday parties. She loved giving small gifts and sweets to family and friends and sometimes to those she had just met. Louella had a great passion for hats and wore them so often that many kindly referred to her as the “Hat Lady”. She loved everything elegant and dressing up for any occasion. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren fondly remember her elaborate tea parties that included little china cups and of course her elegant hats. Many will miss her Holiday appearances as the Halloween Witch with a cauldron of candy and Mrs. Claus with a big red sack of little gifts for the children.

In lieu of flowers Memorials are preferred in Louella’s name to Parmly Lakeview Tenant Council, of Chisago City, MN and Pilgrim Lutheran Church of Frederic, WI. An online guestbook is available for condolences and memories on this page or .

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at the Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Frederic, WI, on Saturday, February 15th at 11:00 a.m. Lunch will be served in the church fellowship hall following the service. To honor Louella’s memory and her love of hats, hats of any kind are encouraged to be worn by both ladies and gentlemen attending her Celebration of Life Service.

This wonderful lady will be greatly missed by all.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Rowe Funeral Home of Frederic, 715-327-4475 and the Northwest Wisconsin Cremation Center in Milltown, 715-825-5550,
