Louisa Ida Carlson was born January 27, 1921, to Charles and Clara (Bertrum) Fisher in Campbell, Minnesota. She was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Faith and attended Vining Country School through the eighth grade. Following her education her family moved to Sebeka. Louisa went to work for Don Danielson of Eagle Bend where she met her future husband, Albin Carlson. They were united in marriage February 4, 1955, in her family home in Sebeka. Following their marriage they made their home in Eagle Bend where she was blessed with one daughter, Clara. Louisa was a homemaker for over 57 years and enjoyed gardening, taking care of her chickens and cattle, embroidering and quilting. She loved to bake with her grandchildren and enjoyed watching them grow. She was a member of Esther Lutheran Church. In her younger years, Louisa loved going to the threshing show at Rose City, Dalton and Albany with her brother Charles and his wife, and playing bingo with her sister, Dorothy. She volunteered at fair share in Dalton for two years. Louisa loved to listen to "Wheeler Dealer" every Wednesday at 10 a.m., on the radio and would stand and listen to her favorite song "On the Wings of a Snow White Dove," when it was played. Louisa moved to Knute Nelson in May of 2012, where she made many friends, appreciated the staff and enjoyed playing bingo every Thursday. It brought her great pleasure when Clara would bring KFC chicken and pizza from Pizza Hut on her visits.
