Adelheid Bertha Lindquist, 93, died February 29, 2012 at Knute Nelson in Alexandria.
Adelheid was born June 23, 1918 in Glyndon, the daughter of Edmund and Ulrika (Brueske) Froemming. The family then moved to Nelson, where Adelheid attended country schools and then to Leaf Valley where she completed her country school education.
She was united in marriage to Harold Lindquist and the couple moved to Garfield. Adelheid was then employed at the restaurant in Garfield, where she prepared the pastries at home and prepared the noon meals at the restaurant. She and her family were long-time members of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Garfield, where Adelheid sang in the choir. Harold died in the early 1980s and Adelheid continued to live in her home in Garfield.
