Obituary: Mary Diaz dedicated her life to educating immigrants and refugees - Minneapolis Star Tribune

Monday, November 14, 2016

Rockwood said. “Every time you would see Mary, you would remember her. She was very funny but selfless. She never bragged.”After high school, Diaz majored in Spanish at Lake Forest College in Illinois and studied abroad in Spain. She returned to Spain after graduation with plans to live abroad for a year. Meeting Natalio Diaz in 1968 changed the plans.“She made me an offer,” he said. “I’ll teach you English if you teach me French.”They got married in Fergus Falls and lived in Spain until moving to the United States for good in 1978. The couple settled in the Twin Cities. Daughter Elena was born in 1980, and Cristina in 1984. Mary Diaz, who earned master’s degrees from the University of Minnesota and Middlebury College in Vermont, went to work at the state Department of Education. The couple divorced in 1999, Natalio Diaz said, but the family stayed close and continued to gather for holidays and other celebrations.At Hamline, Diaz was one of the founders of the school’s ESL and bilingual programs. She also worked for the Comprehensive Assistance Center, housed in the Hamline School of Education, from which she provided technical assistance to school districts serving English learners to help them meet Civil Rights Act requirements.Several colleagues said she was better known for her work with refugee and immigrant education than anyone else in Minnesota.After retiring from the Comprehensive Assistance Center, Diaz returned to work with the Department of Education as part of a team that determined whether schools were meeting standards set by state and federal law. She also volunteered to work with immigrant and refugee families. In 2015, she was named Volunteer of the Year by the Advocates for Human Rights.Cristina Diaz said her mother was committed to social justice and dedicated to those she served. “She lived the life that she wanted to live.”Besides her two daughters, Diaz is survived by three sisters and a granddaughter. Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, at St. Clement’s Episcopal Church, 901 Portland Av., St. Paul.

Descendants of original Lake Forest families return to St. Patrick to view restored windows - Chicago Tribune

Monday, October 17, 2016

On Sept. 25, Sue Kennedy Lohenry went to St. Patrick Church in Lake Forest where she met people with a shared family history."You're looking around and thinking, am I related to any of these people?" Lohenry said. "It's – I don't want to say eerie – but a different feeling to look around the church and see all these people have descended from the original settlers here."This summer, St. Patrick completed restoration work on its 19 stained glass windows. To celebrate, the descendants of the church members who donated the windows in 1910 were invited to see the completed work.Those church members were among the original families that settled in areas that eventually became part of Lake Forest, said Laurie Stein, curator at the Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Historical Society.Lohenry, 80, is the great-granddaughter of Michael Yore, who traveled to the U.S. from County Meath, Ireland in 1826, Lohenry said."(Michael Yore) worked the Erie Canal originally," Lohenry said. "Then he worked in salt mines. People traveled the Erie Canal and would come to Illinois.
