Mildred E. Raisanen passed away peacefully on Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013, at Abbott Northwestern Hospital.

Funeral services were held on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at the Cokato Laestadian Lutheran Church, and burial was at the Cokato Finnish Cemetery.

Millie is survived by her husband Paul; children Randall (Sheryle Sturos), Warren (Brita Bekkala), and Susan of Arizona; Joan (Mark Kotila), Mary (George Koivukangas), Gordon (Ruth Hannus), Kenneth (Pearl Phillips), Bruce (Patricia Johnson), Carolyn Mattila, Heidi (Larry Torola), Dwight, Laura (Evan Bekkala), and Philip, of Minnesota; Gretchen (Mark Plough), and Kirsti (Nick Lang) of Washington; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and several sisters and brothers.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her stepmother, two brothers, a sister, a son-in-law, two grandchildren, and a great-grandchild.

Mildred E. Halonen was born on Jan. 22, 1931, in Hazelton, N.D., to Charles and Tyyne Halonen. She spent her childhood years in the Dakotas, until the family moved to Minnesota, where she graduated from White Bear Lake High School. Millie was confirmed as a youth in the Christian faith at the Laestadian Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. Millie met Paul Raisanen in late 1952, and they were married in September 1953 in Minneapolis. They farmed in West Albion area for a few years before moving to a farm north of Cokato in 1957. There they farmed and raised their children until retirement in 1990. At that time, Millie and Paul moved to the town of Cokato, where they spent their golden years.
