Childhood friends from Edina recycle flowers into bouquets of beauty for seniors - Minneapolis Star Tribune
Edina East High School in 1981. They lost touch after attending different colleges - Hogan at St. Olaf College and Wooldridge at the University of Minnesota - and became immersed in careers and families.
In a stroke of luck six years ago, both were hired by Gentle Transitions, which offers senior relocation services.There, they renewed their friendship.
Hogan read a story about an Idaho gardener who started her own nonprofit to deliver flowers to people in hospice. "It made so much sense and seemed easy to do," she said. Hogan's daughter told her to stop talking about it - and just do it.

St. Paul paper artist crafts incredibly realistic flowers that last
Minnesota. Now she creates custom arrangements for permanent home decor and special events - even wedding bouquets. Paper flowers serve as an everlasting memento of the occasion, she notes. "You can dry real flowers but they don't look the same. These look real, and you can keep them looking fresh."
Her toughest challenge so far? Creating a lady slipper, Minnesota's state flower, for her mother for Mother's Day. "The shape made it hard - it's such a smooth seamless cup shape," she says.
She charges not by the flower but by the hour - however many it takes to create whatever a client wishes. "You're buying my time," she says. That typically ranges from about $150 for a bouquet of simple poppies to $200 for a bouquet of more complex flowers.
And if you want to learn how to make your own paper flowers, she also hosts periodic workshops.

In spring, before new growth begins, prune vigorously, removing thin, weak canes and reducing height to 12 inches or less.Modern roses bloom best on vigorous new growth stimulated by pruning, rather than old, woody canes allowed to remain.

Margaret Anne Combs, adoption counselor for Catholic Charities, dies at 94
After graduating from the Academy of Holy Angels in Richfield and the University of Minnesota, she worked for a time as an art teacher and then a clerk at a jewelry store, said her niece, Joan Petersen of Minnetonka.
Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis hired Combs in April 1968. She was so excited about the prospect of being a social worker that she fibbed during the job interview and told them she could drive, Petersen said.
Upon being hired, she rushed to obtain her driver's license, but driving was never her strong suit, Petersen said.
"She just really enjoyed helping create families," Petersen said.
But Combs took confidentiality seriously and rarely spoke about the specifics of her work, Petersen said.
"She was very supportive whether clients decided to make an adoption plan for a child or decided to keep the child," said Graham, who worked with Combs at Catholic Charities for several years. "She had a lot of insight and could see how this work affected everyone's life in the adoption triad - the adoptee, the adoptive parents and the birth mother."
In her free time, Combs volunteered at a crisis pregnancy center, which Graham said helped her to better understand the difficult decisions involved.
