Shirley Jean Kise was born July 16, 1935, in Minneapolis and led a life based on her terms. And while she started out as a city kid, she soon chose a path dictated mostly by her love of horses. Her rural aspirations had her first on a hobby farm in Dayton, MN, followed by a brief stint on a farm in Madison, MN, ultimately leading her to her making a home in Atwater, MN, the place she spent the next nearly 50 years. While she raised four children along the way she never really settled down until she met the love of her life, Ron Fredrick. Together from 1995 on they saw much of the country in a pickup while maintaining a simple home life on the farm with their horses.

 

She is survived by her partner in life, Ron, her four children, Sue (Johnathan) Smith of New Port Richey FL,  Bob (Kathy) Wise of Placida FL, Melanie (Dan) Ackerman of Columbia SD and Brad (Kristin) Wise of Andover, MN. She had eight grandchildren; Corey, Justine, Tanya, Amos, Laura, Samantha, Connor and Haili and multitudes of great grandchildren.
