Freida Katherine (Rasmussen) Ylvisaker, age 93 of River Falls, WI, died on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at Kinnic Health & Rehab in River Falls. She was born on October 1, 1923 in the town of Springfield, St. Croix County, Wisconsin (Glenwood City). She was the youngest daughter of five children born to Louis and Katherine (Smith) Rasmussen. Freida grew up in the country, where she loved the flowers, the gardens and the geese that frequented the stream running through the family farm. Her love of nature transcended through her life as she enjoyed traveling to the mountains, gardening and feeding the birds in her back yard. She attended Broadview School, where she was an excellent student and an accomplished writer. She received recognition and awards for her scholastic skills. She was also the family photographer, taking pictures and recording them for everyone to enjoy. As a young girl, Freida moved to River Falls, where she worked at the Henry Lang Manufacturing Company. While there, she developed skills as a Master Seamstress and Alterations Specialist. Freida received the Army-Navy Production Award for Excellence. She had a "flair for fashion" and as a young gal, she dressed the part. She loved shopping trips to St. Paul with her gal pals. Freida was a baptized member of the River Falls United Methodist Church where she took part in the Evening Circle Group. She is currently a member of Luther Memorial Church, also in River Falls. In 1955, Freida met the love of her life, Albert Ylvisaker. They were married on October 13, 1956 at the United Methodist Church in River Falls. They built their new home there in 1963 where Freida resided until the time of her death. Albert and Freida loved to travel, garden, picnic and host family gatherings. Freida not only mastered the art of sewing, but was accomplished in the kitchen as well. She made the best Rosettes, pie, and all things Norwegian. Although a quiet young lady, she was hungry for information and was a voracious reader. Freida also loved a good game of Dominoes and Cards.

We have turned to the final chapter of the remarkable life of our dear Mother, friend and mentor Ruth M. Kees. She was not only a talented designer and businesswoman, but also a kind friend, patient confidant, with great wit and worldly wisdom, always there to share a hug, or an infectious laugh, and a tour de force when you needed a strong ally. Ruth was born July 17th, 1914, in Minneapolis, MN. , to George and H. Ruth Mueller. Her father died at a young age, leaving her mother to raise Ruth and her brother John to adulthood. After graduating college in St. Cloud, she married, and had her beloved David ‘“’Tuffer” Tifft. David died suddenly at the age of three. Through David’s untimely death Ruth discovered, then pursued her love of design with architect and designer Genevieve Hendricks in Washington D.C. , where the firm worked on longstanding restorations of Williamsburg, The Elms, and many other notable projects on the East Coast. Returning to Hudson in 1949, where her Mother now lived, Ruth and her Mother purchased what became Harding’s at Hudson from the Harding family. There she shared her knowledge and expertise in interior design, for more than a half a century. She also sold gifts that reflected her passion for all things that were Ruth - books, yarn, spices, and fine gifts. Her handknit sweaters were available there, keeping thousands of babies warm over the last half a century. Her marriage to Russel A. Kees gave them Catherine and Carolyn... Ruth filled her friends’ homes with her innate creativity for design and art. She encouraged her friends to pursue their passions and enjoy the simple pleasures of gardening, cooking, music, and, a soft breeze. Her home was her favorite place to be. She will be profoundly missed by her daughters, Catherine and Carolyn, her extended family and friends, Jeffrey Shaw, Edward Hawksford, and Andrew Terwilliger, as well as her furry friends, Phinney, GiGi, Byron, Tony, Pippin, Milton, Jetty, Sunny, Dune, and Bluie. And love and appreciation to her “other family “ -- Comforts of Home, Hudson, WI “BEAUTY IS THE ONLY THING THAT TIME CANNOT HARM. PHILOSOPHIES FALL AWAY, LIKE SAND,CREEDS FOLLOW ONE ANOTHER, BUT WHAT IS BEAUTIFUL IS A JOY FOR ALL SEASONS, A POSSESSION FOR ALL ETERNITY.” Oscar Wilde A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, February 16, 2017 at 2 pm at Ascension Episcopal Church 214 3rd Street N Stillwater, MN. Visitation will also be on Thursday from 1-2 pm at the church. Interment will be in Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis, MN at a later date. Arrangements are with Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services of Hudson.
