Margaret Alice (Carlson) “Peggy” Fredson was born on July 23, 1931, to Clarence and Alice (Hansen) Carlson in Two Harbors, Minn. She had two sisters, Connie and Shirley, who loved her dearly. During her high school years, Peggy had a special spot in her heart for Ronald Fredson. Peg graduated from Two Harbors High School in 1949 and Moorehead State Teacher’s College in 1951. She taught elementary school in Evelyth, Minn. In 1954, Peg and Ron were married. They raised two children, Lynn and Steve in California. Peg worked many years as a hospital volunteer, made handicrafts, sang in choirs, and enjoyed friends and family. During retirement, Peg and Ron moved to Arroyo Grande, Calif. In her final years, they moved to Washington to be closer to family. Peggy was a joyful, determined woman who faced life’s challenges with faith in God. We are grateful for her.
Peggy died Oct. 20, 2021, two days after Ron. She is survived by her children and grandchildren. A memorial service will be held on Dec. 4, 2021, 2:00 p.m. at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 1601 North Street SE, Olympia, WA 98501. A complete obituary may be found at www.FuneralAlternatives.org
