Unassuming person with an extraordinary life; internment camp survivor, matriarch, and Pillsbury Bake-Off winner. Via the Chicago Sun-Times. A textbook obituary by Maureen O'Donnell of an "ordinary" person whose life is unfurled masterfully in a few paragraphs. She even got the award-winning recipe in there! Wonderful work.
