Remembering Joan Mondale: 1930-2014 (from the Minnesota DFL)





"With the death of Joan Mondale, the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party lost a friend and the arts community a passionate advocate.

"Joan will be remembered for her service and dedication to our state and country. From Minnesota to Washington D.C. to Japan and back, Joan was a true partner with former Vice President Walter Mondale. Joan left a great legacy in the Arts community, from creating her beautiful pottery to serving on the boards of the Minnesota Orchestra, Walker Art Center, Macalester College and the National Portrait Gallery.

"On behalf of the DFL, our sympathies go out to Vice President Mondale, Ted, Bill and their families."

Ken Martin
Chairman, Minnesota DFL

Condolences to her family.

3. So very sad....She was (inside)

She was one-of-a-kind. I never knew a livelier, more vivacious, kind, warm, outgoing woman in the world of politics.

I feel so sad for Fritz Mondale. He's had to bury his child (Eleanor) and now Joan, in the last two and a half years.

I think often about those old days of Fritz Mondale, Hubert Humphrey, Fred Harris, Frank Church...and I can't help but wonder where the public servants like them have gone. Interestingly, all those people I just mentioned had strong and wonderful wives.

RIP, Joan Mondale. A great lady.
