Evangeline Kathryn Wahlstrom was born on September 1, 1932, the youngest of three children, to Mervin and Tilda (Ulen) Fredrickson in Hanska, Minnesota. The family moved to farm near Braham where she attended school and graduated in 1949. She married Ralph Wahlstrom the day after her eighteenth birthday. They had three sons and adopted a fourth in 1972. The family lived on the family farm near Ogilvie since they were married. Evangeline worked as a bookkeeper for many car dealerships and then had her own businesses which included a mobile home court and clothing stoves. She owned her last store, Isle Country Store, up until her death. She bravely battled Alzheimer ‘s disease until she peacefully left this world to go home.
Her hobbies were keeping a tidy lawn and yard; and spending time with her children and mostly her grandchildren. She would fill up her car with kids and go on trips, spend a weekend at the lake cabin, or just go to a movie. Wherever she went she always managed to look her best and if you met her you didn’t forget her. If you were lucky enough for her to call you a friend, you had a good one.
Evangeline is survived by her husband Ralph of Ogilvie; sons Greg and wife Donna, Brad and wife Linda, Rick all of Ogilvie, and Michael of Elk River; grandchildren Shawn, Chad, Jason, Nicole, Roy, Oscar, Magan and Sarah; great-grandchildren Jeb, Kaleb, Avery, Elsa, Austin, Parker and Preston.
