June Pearson, age 96, of Frazee, MN, crossed into the loving arms of Jesus, her savior, peacefully while surrounded by loved ones at Sunnyside Care Center in Lake Park, MN.
June was born June 26, 1925, to Hans Peter and Jennie Matson in McHugh, Minnesota, the fourth of five siblings. It was on her family’s farm where she met Merwin Pearson, with whom she was united in marriage on December 23, 1944, in Detroit Lakes. After Merwin returned from service in WW2, they purchased land in Frazee, building a farm, home, and family.
June dedicated much of her time in service to others. A member of the First Baptist Church of Detroit Lakes, and a true friend to so many, June always had freshly baked goods and home canned preserves for those who stopped by to visit.
June is survived by two daughters and one son, Violet Pearson of Elk River, MN, Ella Beck of Olathe, KS, and Paul Pearson of Frazee, MN: six grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Merwin, her parents, Hans Peter and Jennie Matson, and her siblings, Elna, Jennie, Peter, and Arvid.
Visitation will be held Friday, March 11, at West-Kjos Funeral Home from 4-6, and funeral service on Saturday, March 12, 2 pm at First Baptist Church of Detroit Lakes.
