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.
