On March 2, 1929, Alice was born to parents Lawrence and Edna Augustine in Webster Wisconsin. In her adulthood, Alice worked as an elementary school teacher. For thirty plus years, she educated the children of Prior Lake. She was proud to know her great-grandchildren, Delaina and Grant, attend the school where she taught.
Alice’s life was enriched when she married Albert Fristed on December 30, 1950 in Spooner, Wisconsin. They were blessed with 60 years of marriage.
In her free time, Alice enjoyed bird watching, playing scrabble, and being with her family. Summers were spent at the family cabin where she played cards with her children, went fishing, and enjoyed nature. Alice was an excellent baker. Her famous rhubarb pie was enjoyed by many—her family, fellow teachers, and her husband’s coworkers. She always safeguarded the recipe!
A faithful woman, Alice was active in her church. She participated in bible study and the ladies quilting club. Along with her husband, Alice volunteered at the Prior Lake VFW and was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary.
Alice was a compassionate, generous woman who cared deeply for her family, friends, and community. She is loved and missed by her sons, Glenn (Deb) Fristed, Don Fristed, and Ted Fristed; grandchildren, Travis (Mandy) Fristed, Sam Fristed, and Andrew Fristed; great-grandchildren, Delaina and Grant Fristed; sister-in-law, Anna Nickerson; nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.
There to greet Alice in Heaven is her husband, Albert Fristed; son, Allen Fristed and daughter, Joan Fristed; daughter-in-law, Karen Fristed; parents and sister.
Alice’s family extends their deepest appreciation to those who cared for Alice—the staff of McKenna Crossing, Optage Hospice, and Jasmine Wilson who provided her with the gift of music.
