Obituary for Lucille Hedlund
Lucille Anna Mathilda ( Bengtson) Hedlund was born on March 8, 1921 to John and Emma Bengtson in Clam Falls township. She was baptized in the Clam Falls Lutheran Church and confirmed at the Methodist Church in Lewis. She entered Rocky Ridge Grade School in the fall of 1927, and graduated from Frederic High School in 1939. She worked for a year in Superior, then in 1941 started work as bookkeeper at the Frederic Farmers Coop Exchange.

Lucille married Clarence Hedlund on June 30, 1945, quit working at the Coop Exchange in 1946 and devoted her full time to family and helping on the farm. Clarence and Lucille had three children; Carol Mattson, Larry Hedlund and Linda Anderson.

Lucille was a hard working farm wife, helping with chores every morning and evening, along with keeping a large garden, cooking wonderful meals, doing bookkeeping for the farm and other area businesses. In her “spare time” she liked to crochet, read, and do countless kind things for her family, relatives and friends. Her faith was very important to her, and going to church and the church women's activities was very meaningful to her. In retirement she and Clarence liked to travel, and were fortunate to take a trip to Sweden to visit family there. She took a second trip to Sweden with her sister, niece and family after Clarence's death. She also enjoyed being a part of the Swedish classes that Clarence taught. Over the years her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren filled her life with joy. For the past three years she has been a resident of Frederic Nursing and Rehab, and she appreciated the love and care she was given there.

Lucille passed away on Tuesday, July 26, 2011 at the St. Croix Regional Medical Center at the age of 90. She was preceded in death by her husband, Clarence and her brothers, Gorden and Ernie.

Lucille leaves to celebrate her memory her children, Carol Mattson (Wes), Larry Hedlund (Renee), and Linda Anderson (Jon); grandchildren, Aaron Mattson (Brenda), Adam Hedlund (Sarah), Emily Hengst (Tom), Katie Anderson; great-grandchildren, Isaac, Kyan, Megan and Alex; sister, Edith Mohnsen, along with many loving nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
