Dorothy E. Lundy

ESTHERVILLE, Iowa-Dorothy E. Lundy, age 94, passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019, at Agrace HospiceCare in Fitchburg, Wis.

She was born on June 13, 1925, the daughter of Lloyd and Ruby (Kessling) Olson.

Dorothy married Donald L. Lundy on Dec. 29, 1946, in Wallingford, Iowa. Dorothy and Don farmed near Estherville, where they lived until 2011, and then moved to Wisconsin to be closer to family.

Dorothy especially loved making quilts for missions. She was an active and longtime member of Estherville Lutheran Church. Dorothy spent her free time sewing, reading, and doing jigsaw puzzles.
