** In Loving Memory of Minnie * *
We will Love Minnie, miss her and remember
Minnie in our Hearts forever. Minnie was
a wonderful woman with a great family.
She had the biggest smile, great laugh
and anyone who ever met her remembers
fondly. Minnie was kind, compassionate,
outgoing, smart, witty and had a great
sense of humor. Prior to her Son in Laws
passing away, many years ago, at a yearly
Carlson Reunion Picnic in Big Lake MN,
Eddie and Harry sang a special song for
our Family just for Minnie, in Her Memory.
It was heartwarming. Everyone loved Minnie.
It was a blessing to have known her.
As of 2014, Minnie's daughter Evelyn Hans,
her husband Harry Hans and Minnie's
daughter Irene Wittrock and her husband
Eddy have passed away. Some of of our
MN Relatives went to Illinois to secure
work, especially during hard economic
times in the late 1920s- 1950's. Minnie
was widowed multiple times during her
life. She outlived her husbands. Minnie
was resilient and had lots of energy. She
endured tough times as a Widow. Our Family
has many happy stories about Minnie too.
Her children and other Family Members,
especially, Minnie's Sister in Law
Oline Carlson loved to share their happy
memories about Minnie. Many from
Minnie's generation have since passed away.
Minnie lived a long life. We miss
Minnie, her children, son in laws, and
siblings who have all passed away. They
all used to attend the annual MN Carlson
Reunion Picnics, other family gatherings.
We will all cherish our fond memories of
Minnie forever.

Minnie's Family history/Family tree
is on the Carlson Olsen site and
the Hamernick Ellsworth Family Tree

Minnie's gravesite is McHenry County
Memorial Park in McHenry, Illinois.
Minnie is in the Mausoleum in a crypt.
She is next to the crypts of her late
beloved Daughter Evelyn Hans and Evelyn's
late husband (Minnie's son in law) Harry Hans.

(to note:
Minnie's brother Oscar W.Carlson

We all called him Uncle Wally. Wally
could have passed for their Brother
Martin John Carlson's twin. and did
to some younger grandchildren of Martin's.
They saw Wally (Oscar) during a family
gathering after their Grandpa Martin
had passed away. They thought Wally
was their Grandpa. Funny story they
didn't know Uncle Wally looked so
much like Martin and thought
their Grandpa had returned..
more to this.....) Martin and Oline
Carlson named their Son Wally after
Minnie's brother Wally ( Oscar)

Bio is rough draft to be edited

other Family Members. Per MN Family
Minnie's MN Family thought Irene and Ed
were buried at the same Illinois Cemetery

per Cemetery records they were not
found at that same cemetery. If we
find where either Irene or Eddy are
