THOMPSON, Helen Rosalie  
To many people who knew her, Rosalie was also known as Tommi to many of her close friends and colleagues. Rosalie was 95 years young when she passed away, and was blessed with an amazing and very full life. Those who were fortunate enough to know her and work with her were equally as blessed by the experience. Rosalie passed away peacefully at approximately 12:15 am on Monday, May 23rd, 2016, in her apartment located at the Keystone Senior Living facility on North Victoria Street, in Roseville, Minnesota—where she had been a resident since November of 2009 — and not more than a mile away from the Thompson home — a home which was donated a number of years ago to their parish, St. Odilia Catholic Church in Roseville, Minnesota. She was born on September 11, 1920, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, to her parents, Dr. Robert Thompson, and her mother, Helen Ruth Thompson nee Fortier. Rosalie lived in Canada until her Dad passed away in 1934, and then moved, with her Mother and her brother, Robert, to Washburn, Wisconsin. They moved to the Twin Cities shortly after she graduated from Washburn High School — with honors — nearly at the top of her graduating class in 1939. After attending college in the Twin Cities to become a medical technician, and while her brother Robert completed his service in the U.S. Navy, Rosalie, accepted a position with a hospital in Texas, until about 1954, when she returned to St Paul, Minnesota, to help her brother take care of their ailing mother. She and her brother, Robert, bought a home together in Roseville Minnesota, where they lived together with their mother. Their mother passed away at the age of 99 in 1992. Following her brother Robert's death in 2005, Rosalie continued to live in their home until 2009, when she gave me a call one day, and told me that "it is time" Bob… She moved in to the Sunrise Assisted Living complex (now Keystone) apartment, and turned their family home over to their church. Rosalie worked at Children's Hospital in St Paul Minnesota from 1954 until she retired in 1988, as their Microbiology Supervisor in the laboratory for the hospital. Her brilliance was widely known, and only exceeded by her expertise and dedication to patient care (for "her children" as she might say). Over the years Rosalie earned the unwavering respect of her co-workers—and there were many. In fact, over the years, there were many physicians who consulted with her often for her advice and counsel. Rosalie was a great mentor and friend to many of her colleagues, and highly respected in all areas of her life, both personally and professionally. She was a great and formidable lady, and always a lady indeed. Neither Rosalie, nor her brother Robert, ever married, and had no children of their own. Each year from 1946 until her brother Robert passed away in 2005, the Thompsons would spend most of August each year at the beautiful vacation facility and the Rocky Run Resort in their adopted home town of Washburn Wisconsin. As devout Catholics, and while there each summer, they both attended mass regularly each week at the St. Louis Parish Catholic Church. Having known Rosalie since 1980, I can attest to the fact that Rosalie was an incredibly strong woman — in the most positive sense of that description — but always fair and decent in every aspect of her life, and with regard to her interaction with everyone she knew — even casually. I can also say, without reservation, that anyone who was blessed to have met her, and interact with Rosalie, would never have forgotten the experience. She was one of a kind. In fact, Rosalie was one in a million as they say… The Thompson's were (are) incredibly generous and remarkably unpretentious people. This may actually be an understatement on my part. Rosalie was cut from the very same cloth as her brother Bob in that regard. The gift of the Thompson home to their church; although significant, was only a small example of their generosity, in life and far beyond their lifetime as well. Beyond individual gifts to people Rosalie cared for, everything connected to the Thompson family in terms of assets has been donated to charity, through her brother Robert's Trust (Washburn Public High School — college scholarship program) for the annual recipients of the Valedictorian and Salutatorian achievement, as well as annual distributions through the Robert F. & H. Rosalie Thompson Family Foundation (St. Odilia Catholic Church — St. Paul Children's Hospital lab — Shriner's Hospital — St. Jude's Hospital — Humane Society of Minnesota — the Confessional Lutheran Education Foundation — and again, the Washburn Public High School college scholarship program), and in perpetuity. In short, Rosalie and Robert Thompson will be remembered for their generosity by many, and forever in this regard. Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Wednesday, June 1st, 2016 at St. Odilia Catholic Church, on 3495 Victoria Street North, Roseville, Minnesota. The visitation will begin at 10am, with the funeral Mass to begin at 11am, and the reception to follow at noon. The burial and graveside services will take place on Thursday, June 2nd, 2016, at 1pm at the Calvary Cemetery (Thompson Family plot), alongside of her mother Helen Ruth Thompson and her brother Robert Franklin Thompson, in Washburn, Wisconsin. If anyone may have the desire to do so, please feel welcomed and invited to attend the services referenced, and to say fare well to "Tommi". If you are unable to attend, please offer your prayers at that time, and blessings for Rosalie. For the past thirty-five plus years, Rosalie has been a good friend and a wonderful blessing in my life. I miss her very much already… David Lee Funeral Home Wayzata 952-473-5577 www.davidleefuneralhome.com

TINUCCI Jr., Louis R.  
Age 87 of Mendota Heights Died peacefully on May 25 in Saint Paul. He was 87 years old. Born in 1928 in Saint Paul, son of immigrant parents, Louis Tinucci, Sr. and Marie. Louie loved his family and his career in the restaurant business and he treated everyone he served at Tinucci's Restaurant like family. Hospitality was more than his work, it was his way of life. Survived by his wife Patricia, the love of Louie's life, they enjoyed an adventure-filled life. Louie was working at his parents' restaurant, Duke's Café in South St. Paul, when he met Patricia. Pat came into Duke's one day and it was love at first sight (for Louie, anyway!). They married soon after, and their first son was born a year later. Their family grew to seven children, 15 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Louie and Pat were married for nearly 66 years, and they traveled the world together, from Half Moon Lake to Pompano Beach, Acapulco, Italy, the Holy Land, European and Mediterranean cruises and beyond-enjoying good food and wine everywhere they went. His closest and dearest friends were the ones he made while traveling. Louie welcomed friends and family to his table, entertaining and serving until the very end. He was a man of faith, active in the Church and a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus, and he lived the mission of his alma mater, Cretin High School. Alzheimer's changed the last few years of his life, but his love and devotion to family was unwavering. His family is grateful to the staff at Cerenity - Marian Center and Sholom Roitenberg Adult Day Center who cared for him before his death. He is survived by his wife, Patricia; his children, Louis III (Susan), John (Carrie), Mark (Morida), Greg (Lisa), Ann (Michael) Anderson, Patrick (Helen), Mary; his grandchildren, Amy (John) Hackett, Margaret (Kris) Jares, Louis IV (Melissa), Katharine (Colin Haley), Mark, Jr., Elizabeth, Amanda (Alex) Goligoski, Jack, Adam Anderson, Megan, Abigail Anderson, Natalie, Nicholas, Francesca and Anthony; and his great-grandchildren, Emanuel Kamara, Louis V, Michael, Henry Hackett and Julia.
