She graduated from Detroit Lakes High School in 1936. She married Einer Erickson on December 20, 1937, and they farmed together North of Detroit Lakes. Mildred enjoyed life, and taught others to enjoy it even more. For 25 years she worked at FW Woolworths in Detroit Lakes, where she was Personnel Supervisor. After retiring she enjoyed winters with her daughter in Arizona, Oregon and Montana. She loved to play games and work puzzles, go dancing as well as fishing, and to bake bread and cheer on the Twins and Vikings. She was an avid reader, and loved learning anything about the world around her. She was also a deadly aim if the wrong critters crossed the yard or if there was still a tag to fill. Her life was filled with friends and family of all ages. Mildred is survived by her three daughters; Norma Farley of Pendleton, OR, Marilyn Partis and husband Don of Pendleton, OR, and Bette Lynn Balgeman of Manhattan, Montana, 10 grandchildren; Jef, Justin and Ryan Farley, Curtis and Bruce McDougall, Molly McDougall Sells, Dan, Jon, Steve and Jane Balgeman, 17 great grandchildren, a sister Fern Voxland, sister-in-law Marie Lundberg, one brother-in-law Bert Pfeifer, as well as many nieces and nephews.

I missed seeing your mom at the Upsala Midsummer Celebration this year. She attended every year and always visited and joked with my uncle, Karol Pearson. She knew all the Pearson "kids" when they were all young. My mom was Virginia Pearson White. I am thinking of you and please know your mom will be missed by many.
