Wright-Cromwell News: June 14 2018

We start out this week's news with our sympathy to the family of Marlene Almquist, who died at the Villa Vista on June 5. Her service will be part of the memorial service Monday, June 18, at 10 a.m. at the Villa Vista Care Center, Cromwell.

There are also several other residents who have died in the past two months at the Villa Vista/Cardinal Court who will be remembered at this special service. All area folks are welcome to attend and share their memories of Monica Dahl, Marjorie Valla, Charles Laine and Linnea Korpela Autio.

Our sympathy to the family of Rodney A. Tillman, 77, formerly of Tamarack, who died Thursday, June 7, at Interfaith Care Center, Carlton. Visitation will be Sunday, June 17, from noon to 1 p.m., followed by the memorial service at 1 p.m., at Grace Lutheran Church, McGregor. Burial will be at a later date in Salo Cemetery.

Marjorie Ellen Valla, 91, of Cromwell, formerly of Meadowlands, passed away Thursday, June 7, at Villa Vista Care Center.

The Dollar General Store is in the beginning stages of being built just east of the school bus garage in Cromwell. The CACC'S Gazebo next to Northview Bank is also in the process of being built, too. Then, a huge warehouse building is being built just north of Cromwell on Highway 73. So, I guess we are seeing progress in our area.

The 8th Annual Kaleb Anderson Fun Run/Walk is July 7 at the Cromwell Park Pavilion. There will also be a pancake breakfast from 7-10:30 a.m. with a free-will donation. All donations will go toward the purchase of new playground equipment for the Cromwell Pavilion Park. Checks should be made out to the Kaleb Anderson Memorial Fund and mailed to Greg and Jen Anderson, 55726 W. Four Corners Rd., Cromwell, MN 55726. Kaleb passed away in August 2008 due to complications after surgery. He was born with a left hypoplastic heart. Signup sheets are available in area businesses for the run/walk.
