Wright-Cromwell News: Mar 2 2017

It was both an honor and a privilege for me to conduct the memorial service and do the eulogy for 105-year-old Mary Dahlberg Friday, Feb. 24, at Atkins-Northland Funeral Home in Cloquet. Mary was a simple woman, but her influence will go on well into the future. She left a loving legacy to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be dearly missed by those who knew her well. The family would like to thank everyone who attended or sent cards of sympathy. It means a lot to them!

Here's an email I got from Terry Fraser. "My mother (Eva Mae (Nordquist) Radtke) recently died in Canon City, Colo., where we held the memorial service last weekend. Her wish was to have her ashes buried with her parents in Wright. My grandparents ran the general store in Wright and it became the senior center after my grandfather died in the 1960s. John (Hugo) and Martha Nordquist are her parents' names." The graveside service is planned for June 24.
