Dick and family,
When I was in high school I used to brag about Sharon's graduation picture
as our family "beauty queen." Wholesome, resourceful, dedicated cousin,
wife, mother, grandmother; a joy to be around. We were so looking forward
to her participation, finally, in our planned 2014 Rydlun family reunion.
As an only child, among three "only child" cousins (Chuck Rydlun Weber,
Fredrik Rydlun, Rod Rydlun), I extended my family to included Sharon,
her brother Jeff, and sister Jane Welch (from my "Nana" Dretchko side of the
family). During WW II, my mom "Mone" and I stayed a Summer with Aunt Mayme and Uncle
Charlie. We got to know Al "Lefty" Dretchko and Vern Welsh in Mpls; John Krantz, Willis and
Dewey Lindquist, Carol and Mela Ulmer, stretched my "family." Sharon shared her Aunt Ginny
and Uncle Ron with me (they hosted me on my first independent Summer in Mexico, 1956).
Godspeed to all who knew and remember Sharon Welch Buendorf, and
the joy she brought to us in her favor.
