Obituary for Lucille H. Melin

Lucille H. Melin, 84, of Frederic, died July 6th at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis where she had been for two weeks prior. Lucille was born March 26, 1923, to Elsie and Fred Erickson in Trade Lake and grew up with one sister and one brother. She attended Trade Lake #3 Grade School and Grantsburg High School. Lucille was married to Wilbur E. Melin for nearly 60 years. After farming for many years in the Atlas area, they moved to Frederic in 1980. She continued to live there after Wilbur’s death in February 2003. Lucille was very active in the successful farming venture. After retiring she enjoyed canning produce from the garden, attending auctions, tracing family history, spending time at the lake, and caring for the many flowers she planted and loved. In her later years, Lucille enjoyed her regular telephone conversations with her sister Jane Pearson, brother Dennis Erickson, sister-in-law Alice Gustafson, and friends Laura Perkins and Micky Sullwold. And she looked forward to her ice cream cone from the Alpha creamery after returning from doctor appointments in Grantsburg. Watching soaps with her granddaughter Tammy was also a favorite activity. And not to be forgotten is the companionship she got from her dog Tina. They enjoyed each others company tremendously. Lucille was preceded in death by her husband and her parents. She is survived by her sons, Wayne (Lucy) and Larry (Nancy), and daughter Carolyn (Marv) Melin-Risberg. She has seven grandchildren: Tammy (Jay), Robin (Tony), Heidi (Paul), Jamie (Aren), Christopher, Jennifer (fiancée David) and Julie (Bruce). She is also survived by 15 great-grandchildren, sister Jane, brother Dennis (Jeanine), sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews and other relatives. Funeral services were held Wednesday, July 11, at Rowe Funeral Home in Frederic with Pastor Dave Almlie officiating. Music was provided by Linda Pederson. Pallbearers were Christopher Melin, Jamie Melin, Bruce Peper, Jay Clark, Paul Colbeth and Tony Bushinger. Interment was at the Swedish Mission Cemetery in Trade Lake. The Rowe Funeral Home, Frederic, WI, assisted the family with arrangements.
