Lou Ann is preceded in death by her husband, Erling “Zeke” Zetterlund. She is survived by her children, Jon (Michelle Kearns), Kris (Mary), Sara Terrell, and Amy Vestal (Mike); brother Robert "Bob" Patterson (Martha); eight grandchildren; furry companion, Max; and many more family and friends.
Lou Ann was a dedicated employee and retiree of Lake Elmo Hardwood Lumber. She was a gifted musician, playing piano, singing, and a longtime member of Christ Lutheran Church where she shared her talents as a member of the vocal and hand-bell choir.
She loved spending time with and supporting her grandchildren in their many activities. She was a veracious reader who also loved working in the garden and a good crossword puzzle.
She leaves a legacy of love, laughter, generosity and will be deeply missed. A special thanks to the nursing staff at The Gables at Boutwells Landing and Lakeview Hospice.
