Pieper, Dolores Gayle (Lund) "Gram." Our beloved Gram passed away peacefully at home on August 25, 2021 with family by her side. She was born to Oscar and Edna Lund in Minneapolis on November 23, 1930 and lived most of her life in the Twin Cities area. She was truly the nucleus of our family, and we have many precious memories of gathering at her home. She adored Prince and was a big fan of the Vikings, Twins, and golf. Her love of travel brought her to Paris, London, Hawaii, and Haiti as well as countless trips to Florida and California. She was beautiful, kind, and always had a way of making people feel good about themselves. And she was cool I How many 90-year-olds end their text messages with a string of emojis? Well, our message to her ends with a thousand broken hearts.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Muriel, and her former spouse Russell. Survived by daughters Cynthia Eliason (Mark), Claudia Daniels (Jim), son Mark (Annette). Grandchildren Tiffany (Ted), Amy (Scott), Jesse, Ben, Sam, and step-grandson Aaron (Brendan). Great-grandchildren Alexa, Carlie-Anne, Ashley, Anthony and Andrew. Great-great- grandsons Jaiden and Daylen, nephew Steven (Sheryl) great-nephew Anderson and so many dear friends.
