  14. Mary Lynn (Knutson) Smith

    We were so sorry to hear of Lois' passing. I have fond memories of Lois, Awald, and their family from my baby-sitting days in the 1960s. My parents Len and Lorraine Knutson moved into a house on Durand Street in the late 1950s, and my sisters and I would often babysit for many of the families in the neighborhood. Ken's family lived across Prospect Street from the Weiss family at that time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Mary Lynn and Ken Smith
