Loren (Sonny) Dubois Passed away this morning with Covid
Message from Dennis Dubois (’63): Minneapolis, Mn
Dennis Dubois messaged me this morning that his brother Loren (Sonny) passed away this morning with Covid. He was a resident at the Good Samaritan Home in Bottineau. He was recently in a Minot Hospital for a week. When he returned to Good Sam he tested negative for Covid. While in Quarantine after returning from the Minot hospital, he became covid positive. Bottineau didn’t have a facility for him being positive, so they transferred him to Minneapolis several days ago where he died. Being Covid, his remains will be cremated.
I understand that a lot of the good Samaritan Staff and residence have tested covid positive. The number I heard was 31 total. Also I heard of one positive that I know in Dunseith too.
We extend our condolences to Sonny’s family with his passing. It’s trying times for his children with his passing.
Condolences to the Joyce Murray Anderson family.

Ginger, yes I read a lot, have never owned a TV. YOU may recall that I went through HS like a breeze but when I was in the car accident that took Earl Hiatt’s life on 12/30/65 ALL of that information was wiped away. I was able to make my first try to go to college in March of 1969; it took three attempts to succeed. In 101 English Composition, the teacher asked me how, with such a great HS record, I was not able to write. I told her what had occurred and she apologized. I sent her a copy of first Master degree thesis; it had more than 100 pages. This masters was in Public Health. SNUF Tanks for YOUR ear. Lee (Stick)
