Luella “Lue” Lorraine Oslund Peterson of Day passed away October 25, 2017 at GracePointe Crossing Gables East in Cambridge, Minnesota. She was 95 years old.
Lue was born at home in Brunswick, Minnesota on August 5, 1922 to Hannah and Arvid Oslund. She had two older brothers and five sisters. Lue grew up speaking Swedish and milking cows on the family farm. She went to Brunswick Country School and graduated from Mora High School in 1940.
Lue met LaVern “Bud” Peterson, the love of her life, at the Lewis Lake Dance Hall. They were married at their Brunswick home on November 22, 1941 and had 62 cherished years together as husband and wife. They were the epitome of partnership. They enjoyed dancing, playing cards and traveling together to many cities across the United States and to Sweden.
On a few acres just outside of Day, they started farming with a few milking cows and the idea that they could raise food while providing for their family. This special place where they raised five children became known as Peterson Farms.
Bud and Lue milked cows, raised beef cattle and pigs, farmed corn, soybeans and alfalfa and started a firewood business together. Bud always teased her that she was the “boss darling.” Lue was the heart and soul of their farm. A warm and gracious hostess with a giving heart, she would always have a pot of coffee on for anyone who may stop in. On top of managing all of the farm finances, Lue was an avid Bowler, a Minnesota Twins fan and she loved playing the quarter slot machines. She was proud of her Swedish heritage and a member of Siloa Lutheran Church.
Lue was preceded in death by her parents, husband Bud, her grandson Kevin Peterson, her siblings Hilding (Ann) Oslund, Mabel (George) Thulander, Adeline (Floyd) Rowley, Leona (Rudy) Erickson, Wallace (Doris) Oslund, Jan (Lewis) Agranoff, and brother-in-law Wallace Schulz.
She is survived by her sister Eunice Schultz, children Vince (Lori), Renee (Dan) Carlson, David (Carol), Jim (Paula) and Rick in addition to 22 grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren, 1 great great grandson, many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
