    My deepest regards and sympathy for Steve and his family during this time of mourning. Mrs. Betty Sutterer a generous and energetic spirit who opened her arms, her heart and her hearth to me when I roomed with Steve at St. Olaf College. I always enjoyed her caring hospitality, greetings, birthday well wishes, and friendship over the years. She was proud of her family and rightfully so. She will be missed with love.
