Mildred (Larson) Tellberg was born on September 14, 1916 to Carrie and Peter Larson near Abercrombie, ND. At the age of 3, Mildred and her family moved to a farm in the rural Kent area and she attended country school in Nordick Township, District 44, through the eighth grade. She then attended Breckenridge High School where she graduated in 1934. Mildred was united in marriage to Astor Tellberg on October 4, 1945. They made their home on a farm near Kent, MN where their son Harold and daughter Linda were raised. While Astor kept the family farm going, Mildred was working by his side, still finding time to plant a beautiful garden and to be a devoted mother. Mildred also worked at a local motel in their housekeeping department. Astor preceded Mildred in 1992. She continued to live on the family farm until the fall of 1997 when she moved to Breckenridge, MN. In 2007, Mildred moved to Cedar Rapids, IA to be with her daughter and her family. She then moved into MeadowView Assisted Living in 2008 where she resided until her passing.
Mildred enjoyed reading, traveling, gardening, and the fellowship of having coffee with her friends. She had a gracious spirit and adored her family. Her most cherished moments were the ones spent with her children and grandchildren.
