    Sitka AlaskaHave a vague memory of Gracie Senn at the Skogen home in rural Detroit Lakes. Brother Danny knows a relative of the family in Oklahoma and emailed her obituary. The Clem kids attended country school Joint #1 with some of her siblings. Merle, Kenny, Ronnie, Freddie, little Norman. Such a nice and good family. God bless.

    To Grace’s family & friends – I am very sorry for your loss. I worked as a student teacher with Grace Fridgen, 1st grade teacher in Moorhead. She was an excellent, kind, and very patient trainer who helped me in my student teaching. Of course, she was an extremely patient, loving teacher. If the Grace I knew from Moorhead Grade school is the Grace who passed yesterday, I am so sad to hear this news. An old friend who use to live in Moorhead (now lives in Washington) emailed me about Grace Fridgen of Moorhead passing away. I’m happy to have known her. May she rest in peace and her family/friends have fond memories of her.
