I thought her picture looked pretty young, but I just thought perhaps it had been taken a while ago. In the picture she looks so energetic and full of life.

I'm amazed that I found this - and found it before the Twin Cities folks did. I grew up in Mpls. and read the StarTribune online several times a week. Today, I looked at the obituaries, never expecting (or hoping) to find anyone I knew, especially MO.

Went to work early today, didn't read the paper, thanks for the post. Really , she told us she was coming to Mn to visit friends and family but I guess I never thought it would be in our paper. I really wish she had been able to come. Donna G

Mo was almost a year older than I am. Not old at all.

I will always admire the way she was going on with her work,

and her other community activities, right up until the last days.

I will treasure the angels she sent me that she had made for her

church fair.



Prayers, always,

I'm not sure if you will see this, but i just stumbled across this message board. you all have such kind words to say about my mom. Here we are 15 years later and i love that i can still find stuff from time to time about her on the internet.  I remember her often talking about her message board friends and chat friends, how they helped her feel better when she was feeling sick and hopeless (which she hid very well). Thank you all for being so supportive to her and offering such kind words.
