Maplewood, Minn.- Joseph Engelbrakson, age 90, of Hazelridge Apartments, Maplewood, MN and formerly of Drayton, ND died Thursday, May 2, 2002 after a short illness in Woodbury Care Center at Woodbury, MN.

Joseph Engelbrakson was born the son of Emanuel and Augusta (Danielson) Engelbrakson in Teien Township on August 28, 1911. He grew up and was educated at Teien Central School.

He was baptized, confirmed and a life long member of Skjeberg Lutheran Church where he served on the church board.

On October 12, 1940, he married Mae Lundquist at the Skjeberg Parsonage. They made their home in Teien Township and were engaged in farming until retiring and moving to Drayton, ND in 1977. Mae preceded him in death in 1995 and Joe moved to Maplewood in 1996 to be near his daughter and family.

Joe grew to love Hazelridge almost as much as his farm. He enjoyed travel, gardening, family gatherings, and his many new friends and experiences.

Family members include his dauther, Myrna and son-in-law Miland Meek of Oakdale, MN; two grandsons, Michael (Jennalyn) Meek of Eden Prairie, MN and Matthew (Heather) Meek of Woodbury, MN; a granddaughter, Maridee Meek of Maplewood, MN; and two great-grandsons, Elijah Foster and Joseph Meek.

He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother, Henry Engelbrakson, and five sisters, Ruth, Alma, Agnes, and Helga Engelbrakson, Alma Lindahl, and his beloved wife of 54 years, Mae.

Funeral services were held Friday, May 10, 2002 at 11 a.m. in Skjeberg Lutheran Church, Drayton, with Ben Carlsen and Rev. Dan Klug officiating.

Interment was in the church cemetery.

Music for the service was provided by Erma Raney, Harriet Johnson, Marilyn Lindahl and Marlys Nelson.

Pallbearers were Michael Meek, Matthew Meek, Maridee Meek, James Lindahl, Merle Nelson, and Harold Peterson.

The family requests that memorials be directed to Skjeberg Lutheran Church.

Arrangements were with Adamson-Austin Funeral Home of Drayton, ND.
