MADISON/MONONA-Louise M. Freeding, age 94, of Madison, passed away on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013, at Kirkland Crossing in Pewaukee. She was born on March 17, 1918, in Chicago, the daughter of Gerald and Marie (Vander Maden) Fransen. Louise married Richard Arvid Freeding Sr. in 1940, in Chicago. They resided in Chicago until 1955, when they moved to Wheating, Ill., and then eventually Madison. Louise was a homemaker and excelled in many areas. She enjoyed being a seamstress, embroidery, dancing, crafts, doll making, poetry, piano, gardening, cooking, and was a swim instructor well into her 60’s. Most of all, Louise loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She was known to be a very strong, independent woman, always supportive, caring, understanding, and never judgmental.

Louise is survived by her children, Richard (Sharon) Freeding Jr. of Vancouver, Wash., Nancy Mahnke of Pewaukee, Sandra Freeding Myers of Whidbey Island, Wash., and Keith (Linda) Freeding of Minneapolis, Minn.; eight grandchildren and their spouses; seven great-grandchildren; along with numerous other relatives and friends.
