I remember Aunt Dorothy, your Mom, as a joy to be around. Always enjoying life. Always gracious, helpful, pitching-in and caring of others when we were growing up on Hilltop. After leaving Mankato and returning once a year to visit my Mom and Dad-Allie & Lou, I always had to stop by to say “Hi and visit” with your Mom before and after Uncle Louie passed away. As my family grew in size, when we were “home for a visit” once a year, she would walk around Loyola Field to come by to say”Hi and to visit” my growing family. Always positive in everything she did. I’m sure she was a rock to you boys and your families. Rest In Peace Dorothy.
