Aud Waage-Biederstedt, 82, of Fresno, Texas, passed away on Jan. 28, 2019, in Texas.

Graveside services will be held at 1 p.m. on Sat. Feb 9, at Greenwood Cemetery in Franklin, Texas. There will be no visitation. Memorials are suggested to the family for later designation.

Craig Funeral Home of Minden, Nebraska, is in charge of the arrangements.

Aud was born in Bergen, Norway, on Aug. 17, 1936. The daughter of Ole and Dordy Waage, Aud arrived with her parents to the United States shortly after the end of World War II. After arriving at Ellis Island the family lived in Minnesota and Iowa before settling in Sisseton, South Dakota, where she met and married Jerry Biederstedt. Aud moved with Jerry more times than can be mentioned as he progressed in his FBI career. Along the way she had two children, Richard and Julie (Conroy). During the transition times moving from one city to another, Aud, always devoted to her family and parents, spent several summers in Franklin, Nebraska, helping her folks run the Lincoln Hotel, with kids in tow.

The family eventually took roots in Kalispell, where they spent most of their lives. It was Kalispell that reminded Aud of her native Norway, and she developed strong friendships and a love of antiques while living in the Flathead Valley. Desire to be near her grandchildren eventually lured Aud to Texas. Her strong desire for life kept her going as she struggled with various health issues. Although she eventually lost the fight, as we all will, she fought the good fight and will be remembered for her devotion to family, fierce protection of those she loved, and an incredibly generous spirit.

She is survived by her brother John, children Richard and Julie, and her grandchildren, Sean and Sarah Conroy. Her survivors look forward to the day they’ll all be able to watch her and Jerry dance together again.

Tributes of memory can be shared with the family at www.craigfunerals.com
