A life as full as a work of art


MINNEAPOLIS — Family, friends, elected officials and dignitaries past and present gathered at Westminster Presbyterian Church in downtown Minneapolis on Saturday afternoon to celebrate the “exuberant” life of former second lady Joan Mondale.

One after another, members of Mondale’s extended tribe of admirers praised her fervent support of public art, her ability to build bridges between people and her warmth.

Mondale died Monday in Minneapolis at 83, her family at her side.
