Orth Family, Aunt Louie was a pillar in the Zabinski/Orth family, as you all know. I admire her strength and fortitude. Mostly, I am thankful for how she was a loving big sister to my mother. I believe she is at peace now, but not resting in peace. She is having a heck of a good reunion time!

Dear Orth Family, My prayers go to you all during this time of celebration of Aunt Louie. So many memories with her down the alley from Grandmas, church, perkins, cards and especially the special bond she and you all had with our mother. Sorry I wasn't able to make the trip up this time. Love to you all, Colleen

We had many memorable Christmases at Grandma Lou's always with lots of food and kids, lots and lots of kids. That's the way she liked it. May she rest in peace.

Playing 500 cards at Whitney, I would always try and be her partner. She was not afraid to bid and we usually made the bid. Thank you Aunt Luverne and the Jerry Zabinski family will miss you terribly. Love you, Karen Zabinski

We are so sorry for the loss of your mom. Just recently when we ran into you in St Cloud, you spoke so lovingly of her and were mowing her lawn. Prayers!
