Louise Lalareen Davidsavor, of St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin, was born July 30, 1948, at Grantsburg Community Hospital to Klaus Nicholas Mangelsen and Olga Alberta Stromley Mangelsen. Most recently, Louise resided at Our House in New Richmond, Wisconsin, after suffering a serious brain injury from a fall and then further complications. Louise went to be with the Lord on July 16, 2021, at the age of 72.
Louise attended Grantsburg Public Schools and graduated from high school in Brainerd, Minnesota. After high school, Louise attended Brainerd Community College. She married Richard “Pat” Patrick Davidsavor on July 26, 1969, in St. Paul, Minnesota. They soon made their home in Atlas, Wisconsin, where Louise would help raise Pat’s sons, Richard “Rick,” Steven, Douglas and Jerry, and daughter, Kelly Jean.
When the children graduated from high school, Louise and Pat moved to the Twin Cities where Louise was employed by Intercorp as an accounting manager. Upon retirement, Pat and Louise, with the help of family and friends, built their beautiful log home in the Sterling Township barrens where they created many memories with their family and friends. Louise found a way to stay connected to city life while living in the country. Louise was active in bowling, snowmobiling, boating, traveling and shopping. Most of all, she loved entertaining her friends and family, especially the grandchildren.
Louise was preceded in death by her parents, Klaus and Olga; her husband of 47 years, Richard “Pat” Davidsavor; and siblings, Beverly Manthie, Marjorie Downs, Ardell Mangelsen, Shirley Winget, Lois Stensgard and Lorna Freeman.
Louise is survived by her sister, Lucille (Jerry) Schwem; and sister-in-law, Edith Mangelsen; stepchildren, Richard “Rick” (Barb), Steven (Brenda), Douglas (Deb), Jerry and Kelly Jean (Robert); many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and her special friend, Ken Tebben; and their puppies, Mitzie and Abbey.
