Donna met the love of her life, John Lindstrom, while working at the former Winston and Newall Co.; now Supervalu Inc. They had planned on a November wedding but after attending a friend’s wedding in August they decided they couldn’t wait. So, on August 14, 1948 they were married by a Justice of the Peace in Anoka County. Her parents insisted on them having a traditional wedding, so they “repeated” their wedding vows in a beautiful church ceremony on November 24, 1948.
