Mildred Taube

December 4, 1916 — November 8, 2012

Mildred M. (Fredrickson) Taube, a lifelong resident of Cannon Falls, passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 8, 2012 at Twin Rivers Senior Campus. She was born on December 4, 1916 to Axel and Ida (Lorenson) Fredrickson. She attended Cannon Falls and Randolph Schools and was a lifelong member of St. Ansgar's Lutheran Church in Cannon Falls. Millie was united in marriage to Herman Taube on October 2, 1937 at the Vasa chapel. They farmed in the Cannon Falls area where she took pride with their vegetable and fruit gardens. She worked for several years at the Spectacular Products/Princess Soft Toy factory in Cannon Falls. She enjoyed playing the piano, crocheting, embroidering and reading. She was especially busy at Christmas time with her many kinds of cookies, bars and candies and everyone looked forward to the 'goodies' they were sent home with. Millie was a resident of Park Street Apartments for 16 years after moving off the farm and then moved to Twin Rivers Senior Campus in March, 2010. She is survived by three children, Betty Lou (Ernie) Sparstad and Jerry (LuRene) Taube, all of Cannon Falls and Shirley Braun of St. Cloud; seven grandchildren, Steven, Timothy, Sheri, Sandra, Eric, Teresa and Jeffrey; 23 great-grandchildren and 7 great-great-grandchildren; sister and brother-in-law, Helen and Carl Benson of Cannon Falls; sister-in-law, Leatrice Fredrickson of Red Wing; and nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Herman on January 1, 1994; brother, Gordon Fredrickson on August 17, 2005; and son-in-law, William "Bill" Braun on January 10, 2012. Funeral service will be held at St. Ansgar's Lutheran Church on Monday, November 12 at 11:00 a.m., with visitation at church from 9:30-11:00 a.m. Interment will be at the Cannon Falls Cemetery. The pallbearers are Donald Taube, Richard Taube, Michael Taube, Robert Benson, Frank Landsberger and Dennis Smith.
