I didn't know Mrs. Aspenson, but as a little boy walking to school at Hamilton I do remember the boxers at their house on Jackson St. by Monsoors.
Years later after I graduated from UW-L I worked at the Park Department with her son Gil.
She sounds to have been a grand woman and had a great life. Condolences to all who loved her.

I am sorry to read about your mother's passing. You may not remember, but we were classmates at Lincoln. Hoping all is well with you. My sincere sympathy on your loss.
