Dolores (Horvath) Grewe, 92, died peacefully surrounded by family Dec. 5. She was a lifelong resident of the south Como area and parishioner of the Church of St. Andrew. Dolores was born in the family home and continued to live there even after her marriage to Harold in September 1943. Shortly after his return from military service with the U.S. Navy during World War II, they moved two houses away where they raised four children. After many years, they made one final move together into a home just across the street.
She was a loving daughter, sister, aunt, mother, grandmother, great- grandmother, great-great- grandmother, friend and neighbor who cared for and was loved in return by so many. She was an energetic, hardworking and spirited woman who welcomed many into her home, often with the smells of freshly made goodies and her famous chocolate chip cookies. She loved babies and small children, especially the little ones in her family and in the neighborhood, and always had hugs and treats to give them.
She was preceded in death by her husband. She is survived by children, Keith, Marlene (Ron) Plumbo, Linda (John) Gullickson and Paul; seven grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and five great- great-grandchildren.
Special thanks to the staff at ElderHaven and Allina Health and Hospice. Services were held in early December with Mass of Christian Burial at Maternity of Mary Catholic Church in St. Paul, and interment at Calvary Cemetery.
