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.

  1. Sorry to hear about the loss of “Mrs. Peterson” (to us Steckelberg boys). She stepped in to take care of us when our mom was briefly hospitalized. There are many fond memories of playing with the Peterson kids on their farm. When I think of her and Bud, a smile always comes to my face.

  2. My deepest sympathies to the Peterson family. The old Day neighborhood holds a special place in my heart! I feel blessed that I was a part of it. Great people!

  3. JP, Paula and family, Please know we are thinking of you at this time. Losing a loved one is always so difficult. Hang on to all the memories you have of your mom.

  4. So sorry to hear of her passing. She was such a lovely and gracious person.
    God bless to all the family.

  5. So sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. I enjoyed visiting with her when I bowled with her and my mom. She was one of the members of the Culture Vultures and they all would meet at each others’ homes. She was a good friend to my mom, Peace.

  6. Dearest Peterson Family,

    I’m writing this post for my father, Lloyd Nelson. He has is sad that he will not be there to show his support as he has moved. Dad and I send our condolences. Many wonderful memories were made between the Nelsons and the Petersons. If it was when all the “Club” ladies got together or when our family would go over to their place, there was always happy memories made. It is with much love that we share in your sorrow.

    Graciously, Lloyd Nelson and Leslie Elfman
