Oswald, Carmela Marie (Gaglio) age 90, of Burnsville; formerly of Tucson, AZ, Weyerhauser, WI and Richfield, MN. Passed on December 20, 2012 surrounded by family. Preceded in death by husband, Hoyt and sister, Gloria Hill. Survived by sons and daughters- in-law, Philip (Lorrie), and David (Joan); grandchildren, Kristina, Katherine, Hilary and Jonathan; great- grandchildren, Addison, Jameson, Madeline, Mason and Benjamin; sister, Theresa Tomei. "Carm" was a proud WWII Navy Veteran (where she met Hoyt) and equally proud of her Italian heritage. She was known for her culinary skills, loving demeanor and her 'wink & smile'. In retirement, "Carm" traveled the US and Canada with Hoyt, but always enjoyed home and family most. A celebration of her life will take place in Minnesota in April 2013 and her ashes will then be interred at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
