Eunice was born January 20, 1928 at Isle, Minnesota (Opstead Township), the third child to Edward Eugene & Inez (Winsor) Freer.

She grew up on a dairy farm near Isle, attended Central (country) School and graduated from Isle High School class of 1945.  She lived with aunts & an uncle while working in an office in Chicago, IL, and later moved back to Minnesota and worked in the offices of Gamble Skogmo and Hickman Williams in Minneapolis.  Eunice met Tilfred Bue in Minneapolis and they married at Opstead Baptist Church, Isle, MN on August 26, 1950.

Tilfred & Eunice soon moved to Clarkfield where Tilfred worked at the Farmer’s Elevator.  Upon the death of his uncle, Andrew Droen, they moved to the Droen family farm which they farmed and later purchased.

All eight of their children graduated from Clarkfield High School.  Eunice remained on the farm following Tilfred’s death in January 1993.  In 2002, eldest daughter Wendy and Paul Kimmer purchased a portion of the farm land and moved to the homestead with Eunice. 

Eunice was active at Clarkfield Lutheran Church, was a charter member of the Flying Geese Quilters and was active in the Legion Auxiliary, Homemakers Group and Sewing Club.  She also worked in the offices of the Clarkfield Clinic and the Clarkfield Care Center before retiring.    

She is survived by her 8 children: Wendy (Paul) Kimmer, Beverly (Charles) Derscheid, Phyllis (Greg) Moss, Kathryn Edwardson, Kristy Tanhoff, Wade (Denise) Bue, Joel (Julie) Bue and Jody (Andrew) Wilkins; 14 Grandchildren and 9 Great-Grandchildren; sister, Deanna Peterson and brother Dean Freer; 1 brother-in-law; 3 sisters-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews. 

She was preceded in death by her husband, Tilfred; parents, Gene & Inez Freer; sister, Carol Bailey; brothers, Merlyn, Lyle, Duane & Darrel Freer; sons-in-law, Ralph Edwardson & Larry Tanhoff.
