Betty M. Grimm

Betty M. Grimm, loving wife, mother, grandma, great-grandma, sister and dear friend, age 86, passed away peacefully on Aug. 4, 2011, in her home surrounded by her loving family.

Betty was born Oct. 28, 1924, in Moorhead, Minn., to Eleanor and Tom Fredricksen. They moved around a lot as her dad worked for the railroad and settled in St. Paul. She graduated from U of M as an RN. She worked at Bethesda Hospital.

She then met the love of her life, Orville Grimm. They married in 1948 and moved to Brainerd. They started a business, Doc’s Refrigeration. Soon followed five children, in-laws, grandchildren and one great-grandson.

She loved her family and nurtured them with her heart and soul. She saw beauty in all things. She was a mother to all and a friend to everyone.

We will all treasure memories of her life, love and laughter.

Funds will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Foundation.
