Jeanne Aslakson (Coppini)

Marlene Gray and Jeanne Aslakson were school mates beginning in the 8th grade.  Jeanne moved here when she was 13 to help her grandmother, Theresa Patak, run the barber shop/bar.  Her grandfather was Lorenz Patak (an article printed in the paper in 1941 regarding his drowning).

Jeanne said that in her grandmothers old age she was living at Birchwood in Forest Lake and loved Stacy so much she hitchhiked back.

Melroy “Mell” Aslakson said that there used to be a resort at Fawn Lake.  Mel and Jeanne met in Red Wing.
