Roger Lee Metz, 82, of Winona passed away at his home Thursday morning Feb. 14, 2019.

Roger was born December 2, 1936, to Herbert and Marie (Mehring) Metz in Hoopeston, Ill. He attended Hoopeston Public Schools and continued his education at The University of Illinois Champaign. During his high school years he spent many hours working on the family farms. Following his college education he moved to Chicago and worked for American Airlines as a ticket agent at Midway Airport. Later he transferred to the American Airlines downtown reservation office as a tariff agent, and this is where he met his wife, Ramona.

Roger and Ramona were married on May 13, 1961, in Waupaca, Wis. They moved to Waupaca in August of 1961 where Roger became the business manager of Waupaca Memorial Hospital. Two years later they moved to New London, Wis., where he was assistant administrator. A few years later he accepted the position as controller in the business office at Community Memorial Hospital in Winona and later promoted as hospital administrator.

Roger worked in administration at Community Memorial Hospital in Winona, Minn., for 29 years until retirement in 1997. He was passionate about his administrative career and the many caring people he worked with. He was known statewide for his strong support of auxiliaries within healthcare facilities.

The time came when he decided to retire and follow his childhood passion helping Jeff on the farm. As the saying goes, \u201cYou can take the boy out of the farm but cannot take the farm out of the boy.\u201d He always said many of his decisions during his time as CEO were determined while he was out in the field on the tractor. He had a great vision for initiating innovative programs not only through CMH but throughout Minnesota. His distinctive approach to hospital administration was admired by both his colleagues and the CMH staff.

Roger was also devoted to many Winona community area boards and committees. He was very interested in education for the community and continued to serve on various committees within the school district. During the past 15 years, when Roger and Ramona lived in Rushford Roger served on the school board and developed the Rushford-Peterson School Foundation.

After retiring, due to his love for community and healthcare he became an instructor of the healthcare program at Winona State University. He did interim administration for Good Shepherd Lutheran Home in Rushford, Valley View Healthcare and Rehabilitation in Houston, Minn., Sauer Nursing Home, and St. Anne\u2019s Extended Health Care of Winona.

In addition to his involvement in healthcare related education, he found time to be active in organizations such as; Winona Area Chamber, Winona Area Public Schools, Winona Area Industrial Development Association, Woodlawn Cemetery Association, Rotary Club, YMCA, United Way, Wesley United Methodist Church, and Home and Community Options.

Roger was involved with many healthcare organizations throughout the state. He served on the Board of Directors for the MN hospital and Healthcare Partnership. He was involved with the Minnesota Association of Homes for the Aging. He was also a Board Member for MN Blue Cross and Blue Shield. He was selected to serve as a member of the Commission on Judicial Selection in Minnesota and State Board of Health Commission.

Roger received many awards from serving on many various committees. He was honored in 1998 by receiving the Ben and Adith Miller Tribute Award.

He is survived by his wife, Ramona; two sons, Jeff (Mariann) and Tim (Lorrie); Six grandchildren, Alicia Metz, Courtney (Jordan) Kalbarczyk, Brittany (Nick) Agrimson, Nathan (fianc\u00e9 Shelby), Troy (Kim) Metz and Rachael (Devin) Bagniewski; great-grandchildren, Dominick, Dawson, Lucas, and Hailey; sister-in-law and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Roger was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, a sister, sister-in-law and a brother-in-law.

Memorials may be made to Winona Rotary Club, Wesley United Methodist Church, Winona Health Ben and Adith Miller Patient Care Fund, Roger Metz Manor, and Foundation for Rushford Peterson Schools or an organization of your choice.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, Feb. 18, with visitation from 5 until 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, at Wesley United Methodist Church in Winona. Interment will be at Woodlawn Cemetery at a later date. Please leave a memory of Roger and sign his online guestbook at hofffuneral.com.

ETTRICK \u2014 Beverly Solberg passed away at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019, eight days before her 93rd birthday.

We are sharing the story of her life in her own words:

I was the firstborn child of Mildred O. (Linderud) and Arthur O. Thompson, French Creek, rural Ettrick. I was born in the Whitehall hospital. My sister (Genevieve) LaMae Mikelson was my only sibling, and the two of us had a very close relationship throughout life. I lived on a farm and attended Wayside School for eight years before graduating from Galesville High School, the class of 1944. The first year the school bus came on Linrude Road was the year I started high school. I loved everything about my school years, and decided to pursue a degree as an elementary education teacher. Some of my favorite things as I was growing up were butterscotch pie on my birthday, Bible Camp at Chetek, and shopping trips to Winona.

I graduated from La Crosse Teachers College, as it was known at that time. After graduating, I taught fifth grade in Galesville. I married Francis R. Solberg in 1948. We spent the first years of our marriage in Ettrick and Whitehall. After my dad had a massive heart attack and could not continue farming, we returned to the farm where I had grown up and purchased the farm where I live now. Francis and I continued a dairy farm operation until retirement. I did some substitute teaching and tutoring.

We especially enjoyed the time when our children, Pauline, Ralph, and Ryan, were growing up. My most important job was being a good wife and mother and instilling values in my children. I have five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

I have been active at French Creek Lutheran Church, serving as president of the women\u2019s group three times, teaching Vacation Bible School, was Superintendent of the Sunday School, and served on the Endowment Foundation. I have special memories of the long train trip to Portland, Ore., as a church delegate. Francis and I enjoyed many years as general leaders of the Frenchville Cloverleaves 4-H Club.

I was a charter member of the Sons of Norway in the Blair area and enjoyed planning the programs and meeting new and old friends throughout the years. Francis and I enjoyed riding on the floats.

In retirement we enjoyed traveling by car and by bus. Francis loved to drive and was not concerned about traffic in the cities. I especially enjoyed trips to Washington, D.C., the Smoky Mountains, New York and New England in the fall, and our special trip to Scandinavia.

Francis and I had a wonderful life together. We were married over 65 years.

Beverly and Francis were admired for their special loving partnership and were known to show a genuine interest in young parents and their children. Beverly was strong in her faith, friendly, caring, patient, kind, and gifted in leadership, with a strong work ethic.

Remembering her with love include Pauline (Ron) Haug, Sparta, Ralph (Renee) Solberg, Kasson, Minn.; Ryan (Susan) Solberg, Arlington Heights, Ill.; grandchildren, Kari (Brian) Eickhoff and great-grandchildren, Audrey and Emmett; Leah (Corey) Christofel; Erik (Shelby) Solberg; Matthew and Alexander Solberg; niece, Dawn (Jeff) Stroh; and children, Emily and Daniel and Solberg; nieces and nephews, Ron, Colette, Roxanne, Wanda, Steve, Jerry, Dan, Mary, Pat, Gordon, Gene (deceased), Eric, Leon, Joan, Terry, Scott, Peggy; and cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Francis in 2013, her dear sister, LaMae (Waldo) Mikelson; cousin, Marjorie (Allen) Redsten; and Francis\u2019 siblings, Arnold (Alvera) Solberg, Lillie (Hiram) Haugen, Vivian (George) Shay, Geneva (Paul) Barnes, and Leona (Casper) Erickson; and dear ones.

The family thanks many loving caregivers, staff at Gundersen Health System, Marinuka Manor employees, Pastor Anna, relatives, friends, and neighbors for their kindnesses.

Memorials may be designated to French Creek Endowment Foundation or Gundersen Medical Foundation.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, Feb. 11, at French Creek Lutheran Church, N23007 County Road T, Ettrick. The Rev. Anna Sorenson will officiate, with burial in French Creek Lutheran Cemetery. Visitation will begin at 10 a.m., one hour before the time of service. The Dickinson Family Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.

Gayla Rae Manuel Clemons, 83, of Winona passed away peacefully in the early morning hours Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019, at St. Marys Hospital in Rochester, Minn.

Gayla was born July 12, 1935, to Harold and Ione (Sanders) Manuel in Worthington, Minn., and was the oldest of three children. She grew up in St. Peter, Minn., and worked in the family\u2019s Ben Franklin store. After high school, she stayed in St. Peter, receiving her BA from Gustavus Adolphus College. Gayla received her MA from Eastern Illinois University, before beginning her career as a physical education instructor in Faribault, Minn. She then began her career at the Lake Forest High School, in suburban Chicago, in 1959. A trailblazer, Gayla was the Physical Education Chair until her retirement in 1994 and assumed the role of Assistant Athletic Director in 1970, a role then known as the Girls Sports Coordinator.

Gayla, known as \u201cClem\u201d to her students, was coach, teacher and mentor to many young women and her long career meant that she went on to teach many of her student\u2019s children. At a time when girls sports were in the fledgling state, Gayla advocated, along with the Illinois High School Association and other female leaders, to create the same opportunities for female athletes that had historically only been offered to male athletes. As a result of their efforts and similar efforts made across the country, the federal civil rights law, Title IX, which prohibits discrimination based on gender in education, was passed in 1972. Title IX was the catalyst in breaking down cultural and legal obstacles to create gender equity in opportunity for all women nationwide. Her pioneering spirit lives on still, through the Gayla Clemons Athletic Award, presented annually to a female Lake Forest High School Senior, honoring her outstanding performance as a student athlete and leader personifying commitment and dedication to excellence.

Upon retirement, Gayla moved to Winona, to be near family and remained active pursuing her many interests, which included her dogs, the Vikings, gardening, golf and bridge. She organized a book club, bridge club and was part of the Ruskin Study Club, the Winona Art Club and the Winona Women\u2019s Health Auxiliary, helping to start the Fantasy of Trees program in which proceeds go to scholarships for students pursuing health care careers.

Gayla is survived by her sister, Sandra (Dick) Pope; sister-in-law, Susan Manuel; her nieces and nephews, Kathleen Pope, Lisa Pope, Jody (Eric) Johnson and Jim (Tobi) Manuel; great-nieces and nephews, Lucy Pope, Jon Karl (Megan) Petters, Anna Petters, Karina Johnson, Max Johnson, Susan Manuel; and great-great-niece, Avery Petters; stepsiblings, Steve (Linda) Crutchfield, Susan Crutchfield and Sally Rohrback. Her lively spirit and contagious sense of humor will be missed by her family and many friends and her beloved dog, Gracie. She was preceded in death by her parents; stepfather, Robert Crutchfield; and brother, Michael Manuel.

A funeral service will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, with visitation starting at 1:30 p.m. at Fawcett Junker Funeral Home, Winona. Interment will be in Woodlawn Cemetery. Memorials may be directed to American Heart Association and/or Winona Women\u2019s Health Auxiliary.
