LORIS BREE Loris Bree, a Winthrop farm girl who went on to become a beloved children's book author and educator, will be interred at 1:30 p.m. Friday (Sept. 27) in the Winthrop Cemetery. She died in hospice care March 9 in the company of her family. She was 77. Her cremated remains will be buried in the Gutzmer family plot after a short graveside ceremony conducted by Pastor Eric Haugan, of Faith United church, Winthrop. Faith United was the church in which Lofts was baptized, con- firmed and married to her husband of nearly 50 years, Marlin. Friends, acquaintances and family members are invited to pay their final respects at the gravesite. Friends from Winthrop remem- ber Lofts as an avid young horse- woman who rode her pony, Goldie, in the Winthrop country- side near the family farm north- west of town. She also competed in barrel racing at rodeos. Loris's books include the Kid's Travel Fun Book, Kid's Trip Diary, My Camp Book, and Kid's Squish Book. Her Kid's Magic Secrets book was used as a set prop in the movie, Friends with Benefits. Her books are available nationally in both bookstores and through Internet booksellers, such as Amazon .com. Before becoming an author, she earned a Master's Degree at the University of Minnesota and for 18 years was a speech and lan- guage clinician in the Roseville School system. A pioneering independent pub- lisher, Loris was a founder of the Minnesota Independent Publishers group and served two terms as its president. She also was president of the Friends of the Ramsey County Library. The Midwest Independent Publishers Association on May 8 honored Lofts and Marlin with its coveted Pat Bell Award, presented yearly to only one person, for their "mentoring, understanding, encouragement and humor." Marlin accepted the award on behalf of his late wife. With husbond, Marlin, Lofts co-founded Marlor Press, Inc., Shoreview, a nonfiction book pub- lisher specializing in children's books and boating books. A bold Lake Superior sailor, Loris often accompanied her husband aboard his 20-foot sloop, Persistence, for some wild rides in storms and high waves. She is mentioned in Wake of the Green Storm: A Survivor's Tale, and, In the Teeth of the Northeaster: A Solo Voyage on Lake Superior. She is survived by husband Marlin and son, Will, and was pre- ceded in death by parents Alvin and Bernice Gutzmer, of Winthrop. of Thanks I want to thank everyone who visited, sent cards and prayers or anyway supported me and my fam- ily while I was in the hospital and "fiursing home this summer.
