Deloris "Molly" Christianson Obituary

Deloris Donna (Molly) Christianson passed away on January 10, 2024, and went to live with the love of her life Jesus. She was born on December 15, 1929.

Her grandparents Albert and Nettie raised her, and she went to 8 years of grade school and 3 years of high school. In 1947, she eloped with Donald Christianson, and they were married in Rockford, Illinois on July 23, 1947. They moved to Moorhead, MN and returned to settle in Chetek and then Bloomer where she worked at Bloomer Quality Egg Co. The final move was to Eau Claire where she worked at Fabri Tec, Eau Claire Transportation driving school and city bus for 13 years, where she won a sexual discrimination suit for equal pay and opportunity. Her husband’s job closed their business and she always wanted to drive a big truck, which she did with Marten Transport of Mondovi.

She enjoyed car racing, fishing, crafts, and traveling. For 19 years she and Don went hunting out west in Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, and Colorado. The higher up the mountain she went the happier she was. When the children were growing up, they spent their weekends at the Wildwood in Chetek. She loved her family so much and was so proud of all of them. They were her gifts from God. After Don semi-retired, they spent 19 winters in Mission, Texas where they had many good friends and took many long walks every day. [body written by Molly herself]

She is preceded in death by Albert and Nettie Peterson, Donald W. Christianson, Son-in-law David Beck, Son-in-law John Bilderback, and only son Todd D. Christianson.

She is survived by her daughter Terry Bilderback (Lloyd Beemer) and her children Robin (Richard) Jarvis (Alexandra (Marcel) Cue (son Malachi), Josh, and Abigail Hoff) and Jennifer Nelson (Lauren Nelson); daughter Lee Ann (the late David) Beck of Eau Claire and their children Shawn (Aimee) Beck (Ari, Asher and Hadassah and Ari’s daughters Mira Ari and Mara Molly), Shannon (Randy) Greenman (Jade and Adison) and “Donnie” (Ashley) Beck (KayLee and Tristan), Daughter-in-law Donna (the late Todd) Christianson; and numerous cousins, other relatives, and friends.
