In a statement released Monday, the former vice president said the family was “grateful for the expressions of love and support we have received. Joan was greatly loved by many. We will miss her dearly.”
The service will be livestreamed on the church website, live.worshipchannels.com/WestminsterMPLS. The Mondales are longtime members of Westminster.
