Description

I am the son of Lois Ann Aamodt. I believe the girl on the lower right in this picture is my mother as she looks nearly identical to one of my sisters at that age. My mother was born in St. Paul, Minnestoa March 1, 1932 to Einar and Wanda Aamodt (Einar is the brother of Thor Aamodt who established Aamodt's Apple Farm near Stillwater, MN). Einar was employed by the University of Minnesota in Horticulture. She met Anthony Otto of Saginaw Michigan and were married in Roscommon, Michigan.
