ALBEE OZANICH MERKEL
Albee Ozanich Merkel, 98, died April 19, 2017 in Franciscan Health Center in Duluth.
Born in Eveleth, she relocated to Duluth in the early '40s. Albee's work in the cash rooms at various department stores nurtured her love of collecting coins and stamps. Always humble, Albee excelled at every task- crafts, cooking, you name it-and she never let anyone leave her table hungry.
She is survived by daughters Marcia Ulland and Andrea Merkel; grandchildren Randy and Galen Ulland; four great-grandchildren; and extended family and friends.
Albee's family are thankful for the care provided to her by staff at Franciscan Health Center and St. Luke's Hospice. Respectful of Albee's wishes, there will be no services because "Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room."
