Ima Freeman was born on September 25, 1921 in Adrian Township, Watonwan County, MN to Peter and Edith (Olson) Freeman. She was baptized and confirmed at West Svedahl Lutheran Church and attended country school in West Svedahl. Ima met Eadell Wing at a Luther League Convention and it was love at first sight. On January 22, 1941 they were united in marriage at the East Svedahl Lutheran Church Parsonage. They farmed north of Comfrey all their married lives. They were members of Faith Lutheran Church in Comfrey until 1998 when New Hope Lutheran Church was built. Ima was one of the original church basement ladies. She was involved in Ladies Aid, the church choir, was a Sunday School teacher and Superintendent. She enjoyed getting together with other homemakers at the This and That Club doing crafts and exchanging recipes. The family always looked forward to her homemade buns. She and Eadell enjoyed going on bus trips together and playing cards. Ima loved going to her children’s and grand children’s events. She was very proud of her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great granddaughter. Ima died on Thursday, March 11, 2021 at St. John Lutheran Home in Springfield at the age of 99.
