- Dear Herb and the rest of the family of Gustisons, I knew her very well and always wondered how she was doing since I have not seen her in years. I knew her good brother Tim too, a great guy he was. To bad she didn't have the funeral at St. Rose, she was a great member there. She won my 1860 quilt in 1992 for the 100th anniversary of the parish. God rest her soul.
