Ellen Frifeldt Obituary
Ellen (Fraaza) Frifeldt passed away on December 31, 2023, at the age of 93.
Ellen was born on May 29, 1930, in Ringle, Wisconsin where her family owned a large dairy farm. She was one of eight siblings who all preceded her in passing. After graduating with honors from high school, Ellen moved to Michigan where she met and married Courtney Frifeldt. They had seven children – Sharon (HI), Debra (AZ), Donald (MI), James (HI), Lora (AZ), Richard (HI), and Susan (AZ).
Ellen eventually moved to Hawaii where she lived and worked for many years before moving to Portland, OR. Ellen loved to travel. She visited Bali, Guam, many of the Micronesian islands, as well as Japan and many countries in Europe. She also loved to travel in the U.S. and visited many of the national parks. Ellen spent her last 12 years in Arizona – in Surprise and then Sun City West. Wherever she lived, she quickly found a church choir to join. She had a lovely soprano voice and loved to sing. She was a valued member of a number of churches through the years, both for her singing ability and for her selfless service to the churches. She made many friends wherever she went. She loved to play card games, be in the pool, sew, quilt, and make rag rugs. She loved to be busy and active.
We all like to think that she passed away on New Year’s Eve so she could go out with a bang.
