Myrna J. Frerichs
January 12, 1920 - August 29, 2017

Myrna J. Frerichs, age 97, died on Tuesday, August 29, 2017.

Myrna J. Peterson was born on January 12, 1920 in Irene, SD to Walter and Carrie E (Sorenson) Peterson. Myrna was raised and received her education there graduating from Irene High School in 1937.

On January 25, 1941 Myrna was united in marriage with Lyle Diedrich Frerichs in Le Mars, IA. Myrna and Lyle made their home in Sioux Falls, SD and were blessed with two sons. While Lyle served in WWII Mynra began working at John Morrell and Company and worked until Lyle returned from the war. She then took time off to raise her sons. Myrna then returned to working at John Morrell and Company until her retirement in 1982, working in the Sausage Cooling Department.

Myrna enjoyed dancing, singing and traveling all over the country to visit her friends. Following the death of Lyle July 2, 2001, Myrna devoted her life to her sons. She was a hard worker and enjoyed helping her boys and grandchildren with their projects; and especially looked forward to Friday nights which were date nights with her boys eating at the Pizza Ranch. She also enjoyed socializing with her many friends at the Stop Light on Saturday afternoons. Above all she was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend who will be dearly missed.

Grateful for having shared her life are her two sons: Butch (Lynn) Frerichs and Wally Frerichs, all of Sioux Falls, SD; two grandchildren: Shawn (Randy) Oppold, Sioux Falls, SD and Kyle (Melissa) Frerichs, San Diego, CA; four great grandchildren: Alex & Addy Oppold, Sioux Falls, SD and Tyce & Lucy Frerichs, San Diego, CA.

She is preceded in death by her parents: Walter and Carrie Peterson; husband, Lyle D. Frerichs; and one sister, Laverle Repp.
