Becky was born on June 9, 1952 in Wheaton, MN into the loving family of Mabel (Greenwaldt) and Robert Rosdahl. She grew up in Wheaton making many memories with her four sisters and meeting the love of her life (and junior homecoming date), Douglas. Becky graduated from Wheaton High School in 1970 and earned her nursing degree from the North Dakota State School of Science in 1971.
On October 23, 1971 she was united in marriage to Douglas Frisch. Doug and Becky made their home in Dumont where Becky was active in her community and church. She was baptized June 29, 1952 and confirmed on May 8, 1966 at St. John's Lutheran Church in Wheaton. After marriage they joined St. Peters Catholic Church in Dumont and later Ave Maria Catholic Church in Wheaton. While also being a devoted wife and mother, Becky dedicated herself to helping and healing others through her work as a nurse. She worked in various nursing roles through the years including the Wheaton Hospital (1971-1982) and at the Grace Home in Graceville, MN (1987-2010).
Becky enjoyed spending time with her family at Lake Traverse - often catching the biggest fish of anyone. She will be remembered for her competitive nature; there was no such thing as a "participation trophy" when it came to Becky. For many years she enjoyed playing softball and bowling league with friends. Becky's cooking and baking will be missed by many; she especially loved baking special birthday cakes for her children and teaching her grandchildren to make her famous chocolate chip cookies. She also enjoyed reading, traveling with Doug, and get-togethers with her sisters.
Becky loved being a wife, a mother and a grandmother. Her grandchildren had a special way of putting a sparkle in her eye, a big smile on her face and getting the welcoming hug they always received when they saw her. Nothing could compare to the love and joy that her seven grandchildren brought to her life.
In heaven she is joining her infant son, Christopher, her parents Mabel and Rob Rosdahl, her mother-in-law Clo and father-in-law Felix Frisch. Becky is survived by her loving husband of forty-six years, Doug Frisch of Wheaton; their sons: Robert (Mikaela) Frisch of Greenville, WI and Thomas (Jane) Frisch of Dumont, MN; daughters: Jennifer (Travis) Lickness of Alexandria, MN and Suzanne (Tyler) Whaley of Wheaton, MN; her seven beloved grandchildren: Scott, Morgan, Connor, Ashton, Caden, Ellie and Brenden; her sisters: Lezlie (Norm) Tucker of LaQuinta, CA; Deb (Chuck) Lueck of Lakeville, MN; Roberta (Don) Wagner of Wheaton, MN; and Michelle (Daryl) Johnson of Lakeville, MN; and many Frisch family members, dear friends, nieces and nephews.
