Glenn H. Frederiksen (“Freddie”), age 91, from Post Falls, Idaho, passed away on Jan. 31, 2018 at Hospice of North Idaho. Son of Herluf and Anna Frederiksen, Glenn was born on July 21, 1926 in Tyler, Minn. He married the love of his life, Harriet Bille, on Oct. 8, 1950 at Danebod Lutheran Church (also in Tyler, Minn.). Over the 67 years that Glenn and Harriet were married, they lived in Minnesota, South Dakota, Montana and Idaho.
