She was the third to the oldest of eleven children. Lue and Lloyd A. Walhaug married and celebrated many anniversaries together. To this union, three daughters were born: Rosanne, Shelley, and JoDell. She was a homemaker, excellent cook, and kept an immaculate home. Her gardens were abundant and flowers were always beautiful. Her hobbies include gardening, sewing, knitting, crocheting, canning, teaching people how to fold fitted sheets, making cabbage rolls, sauerkraut, and visiting with friends and family. Partridge hunting and fishing is where she held bragging rights! Also, she enjoyed working many puzzles to pass her time and loved to have fun. Lue was a mom, grandma, great-grandma, mother-in-law, sister, auntie, and friend. She will truly be missed by many. She was preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd Walhaug; infant daughter, JoDell Walhaug; grandson, Matthew Lloyd Erickson; son-in-law, Terry Anderson; sisters, Betty Wallen, Shirley Crotty Wrightman, and Sandy Howdahl; brothers, Bill (William) Cronkhite and Larry (Jot) Cronkhite; and friend, Ormond Cooper.

A big thank you to wonderful neighbors: Noreena and Lyle Guerard, Sonja and Larry Arch, and Chris and Brad Olson for their unconditional love and friendship.
