Obituary for Mildred G. Lindberg
Mildred Gladys Lindberg, 102, was born on April 28, 1908 to Axel and Edith Lindquist of the Round Lake area. She was confirmed in the Zion Lutheran Church of Trade Lake and attended the Round Lake School.
As a young adult she worked in the Turner Hotel in Frederic, WI. On September 19, 1929 she was united in marriage at the Burnett County Fair in Grantsburg to Helge Lindberg of Frederic. They resided west of Frederic on a dairy farm where they raised their son, Wayne and daughter, Doris.
She was an active member of the Pilgrim Lutheran Church for the past 80 years. She was also very active in starting the Senior Citizens’ Center in Frederic and enjoyed being there for many years.
In 1987 after Helge passed away, she moved to St. Croix Falls to be closer to her daughter, Doris and family. She was very special in so many ways as she enjoyed all of her family and friends and always liked to be on the go and was always thinking of others. She loved to bake her favorite rye bread and cookies that she shared with many. She also made many quilts which she enjoyed giving to couples that got married and to new babies.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Helge; son, Wayne; her parents; sisters, Agnes and Helen; and Brothers, Lawrence, Morris and Milton.
She is survived by her daughter, Doris (Emery) Jones; grandchildren, Kim Jones, Kevin Jones, Craig Jones, Tom (Lynelle) Lindberg, Peter (Lana) Lindberg and Julayne (Greg) Miller; 10 great-grandchildren; and 1 great-great-granddaughter; many nieces and nephews and other relatives and friends.
She will always be remembered for her faith in God, her will to live at its fullest and for her smile that she gave to everyone. She will be sadly missed by all.
