Gunstrom, David Alan 56, passed away Sunday, February 10, 2019 at North Memorial Hospital surrounded by his loving family. David was born in South Minneapolis, Minn. December 11, 1962 to Arthur and Bonita Gunstrom. He worked as a salesman for Indelco Plastics for 29 years, but preferred to spend his time at home in Princeton, working on the "farm" with family, friends and dog. He showered his granddaughter, Selena, with love and affection since the day she was born. When not at the "farm," he loved escaping to the little slice of heaven he and his wife, Laurie, recently purchased on Rock Lake near McGregor, Minn. David will be remembered by all as a devoted friend and neighbor, always willing to lend a hand or tell a story. David is survived by his wife Laurie; daughters, Alyssa (Andrew Eilers) Gunstrom and Samantha (Donald) Streeter; Granddaughter Selena; Sisters Shirley Gunstrom, Vickie (Rob) Maier, Lynn Gunstrom; Brother Gary (Vickie) Gunstrom and Sister-in-law Lisa Gunstrom. He was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Bonita Gunstrom and brother John Gunstrom. A celebration of life will be held at a future date.
Hamsher, June Ann Age 70, Excelsior MN, Born December 31 1948, Died February 16 2019. My darling wife and soul mate for nearly 41 years has passed away, following a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer. June's lifelong passion for the fine arts was developed by Temple University's Tyler School of Art. The artistic talent expressed in her paintings, drawings, photography, embroidery and quilting was beyond compare. She had a sparkling wit and easy laugh that would brighten anyone's day. Even in her illness, she could bring sunshine into your life. Albert Einstein said "Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty." June embodied that spirit. Her deep love of nature was inspiring to all who knew her. She never lost the childhood delight of nature's gifts, and was a true steward of the earth. Marvel in natures wonders & treat the earth with respect, and you will be honoring June's memory. June will always be that shy beautiful girl in the bright red dress that I married nearly 41 years ago. Be at peace my love. You are always in my heart, and I will love you forever.
