I am sad to learn of her passing. Had not heard from her for a few years which was unusual as she would always write to me and share tidbits about our family history; her father and my father were cousins. She was a master at researching the Norwegian ancestry and I will forever be grateful to her. I miss her. Prayers to her family. Judy

Lu was my Sister in law. I will always remember her strong interest in family history. She was always contributing interesting stories of our Family Tree. Her interest in young children and their development was always a part of her passion... She will be remembered for her talents in writing and her support for her husband's Art and profession. Rest in peace, Lu.. Sandy and Don Paessler
