“In the face of so many elderly people who, according to their means, continue to serve others, there are many who live with disease and physical disability, and need assistance.” Pope Francis.
One of our Resident’s Mary Bolte is very active despite her limitations of impaired vision and fingers full of arthritis which has progressively gotten worse, Mary cannot sit still, and she always has a project. In her early years she did oil paintings and crafts, but limits herself now to crocheting.
After becoming grand champion at the County Fair, she submitted some of her work to the Minnesota State Fair and she won two Second Place Red Ribbons for her baby booties and round red table cloth.
She won a First Place Blue Ribbon for her baby afghan. It is a pattern that she invented herself, and has been very successful in selling it and showing it.
Mary makes lots of baby dresses, baby blankets, tea towels, dish towels and pot holders for the Home’s Christmas Boutique and to raise funds for the Missions. She is incredible. No idle hands in her!
We congratulate Mary for her great work and talents!
