She played many roles in her lifetime: wife, mother, the nation’s second lady and Walter Mondale’s inseparable partner on the national and international stages, where she moved with energy and grace for decades.

The Mondale's represent a kinder and gentler political history. The rancor and shrill talk of the present makes me long for a time when Republican and Democrat respected each other, and, the folks who put them in office. We all mourn with the Mondale family, for their wife, and, mother, and, a time when a certain kind of civility prevailed in our political life.

I hope the Mondale family can find solace in knowing Joan has been reunited with Eleanor.

Two of the most wonderful Minnesotans, we are blessed to have them both! The angels are rejoicing to finally have Joan Mondale in their arms.

Agree or disagree with the Mondale's politically, this is a high class family that all of Minnesota should be proud to claim as our own.
