Obituary for Alda J. Michaelson

Alda J Michaelson, 84, of Sheridan, IL died Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at her residence, with her beloved husband by her side.

She was born August 17, 1936 in LaSalle, IL the daughter of the late Lawrence and Vera (Nissen) McLaughlin.

She had worked at Vendo and Western-Electric in Montgomery, IL; Gord Plastic Mfg. in Sandwich, IL. After many years working in the factories she went to work cleaning homes in the area until she suffered a debilitating stroke three months ago.

She was a great animal lover, especially horses. She and her husband raised thoroughbred horses for over 30 years. Many of the off springs went to race tracks or became hunter jumpers. Occasionally she and her husband would go to the race track to watch the races and lately they watched the races on TVG. All through life she had a very strong work ethic.

Her survivors include her husband of 39 years Clifford L Michaelson, daughter Kathy Hudgens of Kansas City, MO, son Larry Wilson of Hot Springs, AR, four grandchildren, six great grandchildren, two brothers Jim and Larry McLaughlin both of Sheridan, IL, several nieces, nephews and her constant companion care dog Jennifer. She was preceded in death by two sisters and a brother.
