The obituary for 'Freida' (under her 2nd married name of course) is found in The Daily Inter Lake newspaper of Kalispell, Montana - 1 Dec 1965. That obituary lists a specific date of her birth which also EXACTLY matches the original birth/baptism record for Petra Jakobsdatter of Eike farm in Fister parish, Hjelmeland, Rogaland, Norway.

She is mentioned one year after her immigration to the US in the Helena Montana city directory of 1904 as Petra Eike -- I have found no other time in records after her immigration where she uses the name Petra but between 1904 and her first marriage in 1907 she decides to call herself Freida.
